It is true that Collin's first experience with baldness was my fault. But I'm not sorry - it was for his own good. His funktastic cradle cap was out of control and grossing me and everyone else out so I treated his scalp with olive oil numerous times and scraped it off. Unfortunately, his hair came out with it, leaving an unsightly bald spot right on top of his head. When he started to give me lip about it, I would just ask, "Would you rather be bald or scabby?" That would shut him up.
Then last week, his hair suddenly started falling out by the handful. Kyle amused himself by pulling tufts out and marveling at them. Several of his therapists were concerned that it was another side effect of his crazy meds, but there were baby hairs growing in underneath, so we knew it was natural.
After a few days of this, he was looking pretty mangy, so we helped him about by trimming the longer wispy parts. So now it almost looks like a little buzz. Not the same as his shock of silky black hair, but still pretty darn cute.
So since Collin has lost his distinguishing characteristic, I told him that he needs to learn a trick or something. He decided to go with opening both of his eyes at once!
And when that got a good reaction, he really wowed us by looking through his glasses!
I would trade hair for eyeballs any day.
