One of the things I desire to do more off is share some of the crazy antics that happen around my neck of the woods. Being a mommy of 3 children, 4 and under, is always full of interesting things. Add in a speech delay and special needs and you really find some fun times.
When I started this blog almost 3 years ago, I did it as a means to share my journey with family and friends. I told myself that if I was able to help one person, then it was all worth it. And I know that I have been able to do so through my mothering and running.
Well, today’s post is one that is hopes of giving mother’s everywhere a good smile and maybe a laugh.
Ryan is my precious second son. He was born with an extra 21st chromosome, more commonly known as Down syndrome.
He has been my easiest baby by far, in most areas. He sleeps well, has a great temperament and is just an overall joy to be with.
There are a few areas that continue to be a challenge, but that is how it is with all children.
One of those areas is his head!
It is slightly misshaped, which you wouldn’t notice unless you looked for it. We keep his hair longer to keep it covered up. That is really just an excuse to say that the boy doesn’t like his head touched.
No combing and no cutting please!
But in effort to get rid of the Justin Beiber look, even if it is all the rage, I had to take him for a long overdue cut.
With a promise of french fries if he was brave, we set out on our adventure. The little boy sat in my lap, never cried and even let the lady use the clippers on him this time.
The end result was one happy baby boy!
