"Rudolph Hair Style"
As you've probably determined from these blogs, and those whom know him personally, Colton is a bit of a kooky kid. He is mister personality and, I think, darn cute. He also has quite an imagination (like I did as a kid) and is very inquisitive. Lately, his thing has been pretending to be different animals or creatures. He loves to wear pajamas because he thinks he can "be" different things with them on--if he's just wearing regular clothes, then he says he's just Colton the little boy (and that is too boring I guess). However, I am a relatively normal mother and believe children should appear in public wearing day clothes. And, he does when we leave the house to run errands and stuff. But here's the catch.... Colton still needs to pretend to be someone or something despite his boring boy clothes. So, he asks me to style his HAIR in certain ways. For example, if he wants to be a dinosaur, I style it like "Three Horn" and make three distinct spikes on the top, or like a dragon is a messy, rough style like their scaly skin. Spiderman is usually our Sunday hairstyle because Peter Parker combs his hair to the side. Well, his latest request is to have his hair styled like Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer. He specifically asked me to make it look like two ears, and two horns...I did the best I could. Here is a video of our end result. In the video you will notice that he is also sitting like his Rudolph also...again, all his own idea.
