New do

OK, firstly let me tell you a little about Joe; he knows exactly what he wants and when, like right now. He was born that way,impatient to get into the world, impatient to get on with life, no messing around. It used to drive me crazy when he was little. he had a great imagination and loved to dress up as his favourite characters, either from books , movies or console games and would pressure any adult he could into making the costume for him, usually it was my Mum because she has the best sewing skills and if no one would make a start for him then he would try and do it himself, four year olds and sewing machines are not always a good mix. Not that he would nag or whine or even get nasty about it he just has that way of putting the pressure on that is distinctly Joe. He will probably do well in life by it , that single minded dedication to what he wants (and he drives himself as hard as anyone else, whether it be drawing, I've seen him sit for hours drawing and redrawing characters to get them just right, or his sport) but sometimes there are times when I just have to shake my head and count to ten, thankfully he has a pretty sweet nature because it could really drive me nuts otherwise if there wasn't quite a bit of sugar and charm along with it. So when he decided he wanted his hair cut after trying to grow it out and it turning into a curly boof that was it , it had to be done, there, that night no matter what else was on we were going to have to work around it. He even fidgeted during a demo basket ball training session put on by the pioneers, a team from a neighbouring major town about an hour away, something he would normally love to watch, and never mind that I was enjoying watching too. so home, google research and half an hour later I had one happy boy with his new (tasteful, lol) mohawk. Those years of hairdressing still come in handy at times.

Side view (with a catching flies expression on his face)

There are so many things wrong with this shot, missed the focus on his eyes, colour wonky etc but still I love it.
