Why is this an oddity? Because it was Jay's request. Last night I was taking him to bed and he looked at my hair (two days unwashed in a ponytail) and said, "Mom, take your hair out. I love when your hair is down."
As much as I wanted to, my hair was disgusting- and shower time was right after he went down. So I promised him I would wear it down tomorrow.
CK woke up super early this morning (Daylight Savings- what what!) while Jay slept until 8:30!!!!!! But because of this it actually gave me time to straighten my hair.
Jay woke up, came down the stairs, and walked directly to my lap where I was on the floor playing with Charley. He snuggled in for a bit. After about ten minutes he turned around and looked at me and had a HUGE smile on his face. Then he started stroking my hair. It was super super sweet.
Oh child, if this is all it ever takes to make you happy, we are in for a good ride!
I love that boy... And his baby sister, too!
