What Happens When You Plan Haircuts After a Park Day?

You end up with one kid thinking of himself as Spock:

From Spring 09

And the other with a Mohawk!

From Spring 09

Lots of Star Trek play, and other kids with Mohawks, at park day yesterday I guess.

And, how do you say no to your five-year-old who wants a Mohawk? I decided that I couldn't do it, because if you cannot choose your hairstyle when you are five, it's going to come back to bite your parents when you are sixteen.

i don't either, and wouldn't think of it... although i have put my 2 cents in make it "even cooler." seriously, after 8 or 9 yrs of my school forcing me to wear my hair a particular way, i discourage mere conformity without legitimate reasons.

of course, i have put my foot down on tattoos. not until they're of legal age to get one, at least.

Oh my goodness! How funny! My 10 year old has a mohawk too!

I think that is cute!

Cute hair! When my son was 2 his hair was taking forever to grow in so he looked like he had a Mohawk and because his hair was so fluffy it looked like an Afro. We dubbed his hair the Frohawk. Thank God it grew in over the next few months.

Good for you for letting them have fun with their hair! :-) It's hair, it'll grow back/out. Your oldest looks like the young Spock from the movie!! LOL Too cute!

I like both cuts! Better than the case of the shaggies that my sons both have going currently. Sigh.

Your site popped up when I did a search about getting children “unplugged” while doing some publicity for my newest children’s book with Farrar Straus & Giroux (yes, authors have to do their own publicity these days, and it’s all online).

Because of your interest in getting kids unplugged, I thought you might like to take a look at “Too Much Flapdoodle” ( It’s a chapter book, aimed at 7-12 year-olds, about a boy who is completely “plugged in” until he has to go spend the summer on the farm of his eccentric Great Aunt and Great Uncle. If you’d like more information, or possibly a review copy, just let me know.

I’d love it if you could consider it for recommendation, if you have a way to do it on your web site.

“Too Much Flapdoodle” is a “read aloud treat” (Kirkus). In stores now.

Aunt MAttie and Uncle Philbert now have a web site
of their own!
