“Johnny” Turns Two


Our son, whom I call Johnny on this blog, just turned two. His dad, tired of elderly ladies mistaking Johnny for a little girl because of his glorious blond curls, extracted from his mom a promise to cut said curls after the birthday. All right, says Mom. But how are curls logically feminine?

Oh well. A man’s son’s sexuality is half of a man’s own. Off come the curls, and our baby is that much closer to maturity.

But first we got pictures.

Happy Birthday, angel child.


  1. Thanks for the good wishes, Elizabeth and Emeline.

    Matt, I’m glad you like the picture; I do, too. The copyright belongs to Portrait Innovations but I’m proud to say I helped set it up.


  2. Johnny is so cute! He reminds me of my priest’s son who is 2 1/2 years old. They have yet to cut his curls! He is blonde too and his curls are massive. Could you post a picture of him without his curls? It would be interesting to see the difference.
