This blog is my place to vent and share resources with other parents of children of trauma. I try to be open and honest about my feelings in order to help others know they are not alone. Therapeutic parenting of adopted teenagers with RAD and other severe mental illnesses and issues (plus "neurotypical" teens) , is not easy, and there are time when I say what I feel... at the moment. We're all human!

On the lighter side

The much lighter side actually. Ponito had been growing his hair out as appears to be popular these days, and despite waitresses asking what "she" wants to eat, he refused to have more than the bangs trimmed. UNTIL he started learning to scuba dive with Hubby (Hubby is a scuba instructor). Ponito quickly realized that long hair interfereres with putting on and taking off a scuba mask underwater!

I'm the family hair dresser (at least for the boys), but my razor had broken so I ended up using scissors. It was Spring Break so I decided to take my time and try out some new hair styles. Ponito was at my mercy!

Here is my favorite. The Mullet!

I forced him to let me take these pictures by refusing to cut anymore unless he let me! Bwaahaahaaa! (evil laugh) I never did get to take a good picture of the Mohawk (not shaved on the sides, but the top was still about 4 inches long and I spiked it with mousse briefly, but he took it down).
And of course the final result. (*grin* doesn't it look like my nephew and new niece are staring at his hair in this picture?)
