Style it like Beckham

David Beckham has descended upon America and son D. has decided that he wants to be just like him.

Before the game this weekend, there was a short interview/biography special on ESPN. I thought it would be interesting to watch it. (Yes, I like the "up close & personal" segments at the Olympics, too.)

Big mistake.

Son D. was fascinated by everything about Beckham - especially the hairstyles. He wore his 'soccer uniform' to preschool today - including the too-big soccer socks that go up past his knees.

This afternoon, he dressed up his hair with three of his sister's headbands (including the pink one.) I felt the need to explain his appearance to all the neighbors we met along the way to swim team..."He watched Beckham this weekend." Luckily, they all nodded in understanding.

Tonight, he is sleeping in his soccer PJs, with the thigh-high soccer socks. He has added a pony-tail to his newly found hair style collection. Just a little one sticking straight up at the top of his head.

He had me photograph it so he could see what it looks like. But I just can't bring myself to post a picture of him on the internet looking like this. Personally, I think it's adorable. His prom date in 13 years might not.

Yesterday's quote of the day was, "Mama, if you win a stage at the Tour de France - you get two pretty girls!"

I suppose that as long as Vinocourov doesn't start sporting a pony tail out the back of his helmet, we should be OK.

I look forward to the day when Angry Boy wants to be like Beckham. At age almost-4, he mostly wants to be like Batman.
