Mullets and such.

We wanted to do something special before school starts next Wednesday.  Granted, it wasn't exotic or unique, but going to the water park WITH Daddy has a certain desirable quality that makes it all pretty darn exciting.  Somehow, whenever Ben's around, things are about 90% more fun than they would've been without him.  He's a keeper...for a good time (IF you know what I mean, heh, heh).
When I wasn't saving Lincoln's life from his older brothers trying to drown him--because he only did ONE thing the ENTIRE TIME, i.e. splash his brothers in the face--I relaxed on a lounger and watched five mothers with their newborn babies, FIVE, all around me.  

Boy, it's hard to go to a public pool with a newborn, with or without other children in tow.  Bless those women.  They were so sweet and nurturing and beautiful as they nursed away in their cute bathing suits.

Things like that make me proud to be a women.  We really ARE pretty amazing, aren't we?

Anyway, I was stroking the back of Sam's hair, running my fingers up from the nape of his neck, just relaxing, and thought to myself, I better figure out what to do with this boy's hair or else he might end up looking like our new friend from the lazy river.  
Oh dear, that was awful.  I couldn't help myself.  It was too funny.  I was dying inside as I pretended to take pictures of the kids AROUND Mr. Mullet-Man, when really, I was out to catch him unawares.  

I'm sure he's a nice guy.  Really.  And I hope he has a sense of humor, but then again, guys with mullets usually do, don't you think?

oh my gosh.
That is no doubt, THEE LONGEST MULLET I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. I wonder what it looks like dry.

And I love you for secretly snapping a picture.

Sammy's little copper hair is presh. You still have several months (weeks?) before his wee little mullet starts to form. ;)

Katie, I was waiting for you to read this post...thinking to myself that YOU would get a kick out of this. I'm so glad you commented.

Ben and I fell asleep last night discussing the motivations behind mullet-growth. He offered some pretty interesting possibilities, some I'd never thought of before. It was enlightening.

What's wrong with a little business in front and party in the back? ;)

Kaelub has way too many names for different types of mullets. He thought this was awesome of you to secretly get a picture.
