Baby Mullet

They have many names. In my day, we called them SOTLIBs (short on top, long in back). In Kulani's area of the world in which he was raised, they called them spillbies. Thanks to MulletsGalore.com, everyone now refers to them as mullets. For the record, I even hated mullets when they were considered cool. So why do I have a baby who is sportin' one? Two words: lazy and cheap. I'm not sure how you would even cut a baby's hair, and it seems silly to actually pay someone to do it. Currently, she is confused for a little boy everywhere we go. I need to do something. Bows don't stay in her hair because she pulls them out. I have put ponytails in the back that cutens (is that a word?) her up a bit. For now, I guess it's "long live the mullet!" Throw stones at me now, but I've even been getting a kick out of the king of all mullets: Billy Ray Cyrus. If you've watched at least a dozen episodes of Hannah Montana, you know what I'm talking about. Or maybe you've watched some episodes and you're still confused by my fondness for Mr. Achy Breaky. Maybe it's because I expected absolutely nothing from him, but I laugh out loud every time he says anything. He cracks me up on that show! Call me naive and sheltered, but I'd never heard the mullet described as "business in front, party in back" until watching HM. So Nohea, you're in good company.


But you've got something stuck between your teeth...

I thought we called them SOSLOBs, short on sides, long on back.

Oh, baby mullets, don't we love them.

Hey, did you hear, this baby in my tummy is a boy.

Mares! Technically, he's not in your "tummy," but we all use that phrasology when around small children. Congrats on a boy! I had a dream and Kulani had a dream that I had a little boy. I would love for it to come true... How is your pregnancy going anyhow?

Oh and you're right: we did call them SOSLOBS, I just couldn't remember. I am the queen of malapropisms. Call me Mrs. Malaprop, only my misusage isn't always for comic affect, but more, brain deadedness. I need to do more crossword puzzles ...

I'm glad to hear that other people cut their children's hair. I started because I was too cheap, but now they like me to do it. My kid's friends now come to me to ask me to cut their hair.
She could have a shaved head and still be cute. What a doll.

She is so stinking cute. For the record, both my kids are routinely called different genders when we go out in public. Mister Charming especially. People are a little retarded like that.
