Both Lucas and Eli periodically ask to grow their hair out....that is until it gets to a certain length and then we are back to a short cut. Their sisters have a "knack" for teasing them and rubbing their hair just to irritate them. Eli especially doesn't understand why people rub their heads.
Today he caught himself doing the same thing only to Sydney's boyfriend who recently cut his hair short. When we pointed out that Eli doesn't like it when people rub his hair so he shouldn't do it to others...his come back? "Well, just cause I don't like it, they still do it, so I will too."
We may have a little training on the concept of "do unto others as you'd have them do to you."
