It was a very emotional day. I don’t think Rader actually realized how hard cutting his hair would be…he was joking and laughing for the first two cuts, and then broke down into horrible, heart-wrenching tears for the last two cuts. I was a bit torn about how to handle it because I didn’t want to cry but when you see your 14 year old mancub breaking down, it’s hard not to join him.
Here’s a picture play-by-play:
He didn’t love his hair at first, but after spending the weekend looking at himself, I think he’s totally smitten now.
Happy Memorial Day, USA! Please take the time to thank a service member for his or her dedication to our freedom.
