Since we cut Theo’s hair, he’s changing right before our eyes. It’s a good thing that we are witnessing somewhat of a bloom effect happening in our almost 7 year old son. What’s difficult is that we have to make a conscious shift in how we communicate, spend time and show affection with him.

It smells like him, and he appreciates it because before every dance, party, interview, photo, etc, he anoints himself with the bristles, to further usher in his fresh.
