We Give Up...........................

Bed Head has conquered us. Bed Hed, Nap head, Hat head, car seat head, you name is, the little man has it in spades. Despite the fact that we liberally use conditioner and detangler and try to keep it in place with gel, it is literally a pain for the little man to get his hair brushed. He has a cowlick at the top/back to his head and since he's a wiggly sleeper, his hair is just horribly snarled every day. We can tame it for a little while, but at the first opportunity, his hair is back and worse than before. I've tried growing his hair out into a longer, more flattering hairstyle but it's just not not worth it right now. I already went from longer to halfway shorter in the hopes that it would be easier, but no, length, any length , ends up snarled. So, we're back to short, less flattering, but a heck of a lot easier to handle.
I thought that straight hair would be easier to handle/style than my riotous (rioting would be more accurate) curls, but I was wrong, I admit it, and I admit that we lost, we surrender.

Sarah gets a bed head too. I keep a jar of hair jel next to the front door. I dab some jel on her baby fine hair and then brush it...does the trick.

Acer, I hope you enjoy your unique hair. It can be frustrating at times, but it's part of what makes you well... I've had the same cowlick in front and alfalfa top up there for 27-and-counting years, and the only things that suppress them are 6+ months of growth or buckets of level-11 hair gel. Welcome to the club!

Too funny! I think Jailyn has the same head of hair! It's so fine! -not too sure how to cut it to help her out. (not that she cares :)

We know all about bed-head here, too. My mommy sprays my hair with her hair stuff and it lays down. That might work for you, but you would smell like a girl the rest of the day...oh well, we still think you are adorable!

That is so cute ! Barrington had bed head too. He will grow out of it when it comes in thicker. (Once we put B's in a ponytail! Don't tell anyone) I had to share this boy spoof with you...(hope you don't mind that its long)
Having sons...

You find out interesting things when you have
sons, like...
1. A king size waterbed holds enough water to
fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.

2. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and
run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.

3. A 3-year old Boy's voice is louder than 200
adults in a crowded restaurant.

4. If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan,
the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42

pound Boy wearing Batman underwear and a

Superman cape. It is strong enough, however,

if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four

walls of a 20x20 ft. room.

5. You should not throw baseballs up when the
ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat,

you have to throw the ball up a few times before

you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a
long way.

6. The glass in windows (even double-pane)
doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

7. When you hear the toilet flush and the words
"uh oh", it's already too late.

8. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke,
and lots of it.

9. A six-year old Boy can start a fire with a
flint rock even though a 36-year old Man says

they can only do it in the movies.

10. Certain Lego's will pass through the
digestive tract of a 4-year old Boy.

11. Play dough and microwave should not be used
in the same sentence.

12. Super glue is forever.

13. No matter how much Jell-O you put in a
swimming pool you still can't walk on water.

14. Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

15. VCR's do not eject "PB & J" sandwiches even
though TV commercials show they do.

16. Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

17. Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when

18. You probably DO NOT want to know what that
odor is.

19. Always look in the oven before you turn it
on; plastic toys do not like ovens.

20. The fire department in Austin, TX has a
5-minute response time.

21. The spin cycle on the washing machine does
not make earthworms dizzy.

22. It will, however, make cats dizzy.

23. Cats throw up twice their body weight when

24. 80% of Women will pass this on to almost all
of their friends, with or without kids.

25. 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the
Clorox and brake fluid.
