recently i’ve noticed that Zander’s hair has been getting really coarse and dry…like straw. it didn’t take me long to realize that i’m a dolt.
you see, we were instructed by my dermatologist to use Dove Baby Wash on the boys because of their eczema. we’ve using it for over a year now, and it’s definitely made a difference in their skin. but do you think it ever entered my mind that at some point their hair would need something a little more specialized than baby wash? like, say….shampoo???? of course not…’cause i’m cool like that.
so the other day when i was doing some grocery shopping, i picked up some baby shampoo with the whole “no tears formula” and what-have-you.
the next night when the boys were in the tub, i pulled out the shampoo to show Zander.
me: look Zander…shampoo! and there’s a teddy bear on the bottle!
Zander: ya…teddy bear! new soap!
me: yup! shampoo is soap, but it’s special soap for your hair!
Zander: campoo for ma hair!
me: that’s right! so we will use this soap [pointing to the Dove Baby Wash] for your body, and the shampoo for your hair.
Zander: wash wi’ campoo!
me: well, shampoo is only for washing your hair. this soap [pointing again to the DBW] is for washing everything else….your arms, your legs, your belly, your bum, and your back.
Zander: [very loudly] and ma penis! [looking worried, as if his penis would forever be left out of the bathing festivities]
me: yes, we’ll wash your penis with this soap too. [laughing my ass off!]
i am pleased to tell you that both boys now have soft, silky, shiny hair, and the boys have been assured that no body parts will be left out of their normal bathing routine.
