This had been a topic of much debate in the Beaudoin home for weeks and weeks prior to the event. Dan felt strongly that his little boy needed a clean, short cut. I was just not ready to let go of those little curls (I am convinced that Peter's curls are the only trait inherited from me. He is all Dan, through and through and I love that. But I'm happy that he has just a little bit of his momma in him too.)
On our last day in Germany as we were waiting for our flight home (and Peter was looking especially scruffy after his hospital stay) we decided that the time had come. We stopped by the Barber Shop on base and took a number. I must admit, I was almost feeling ill from nervousness! I was not anticipating such a reaction and I have no idea why it affected me so much. I think this milestone was just a reminder to me that my little boy was growing up.
