My sweet boy

This was my Mother's Day present! I found a company that would retouch Killian's picture for me. People have been offended seeing it in it's previous form. I have always thought he was perfect but this is something that I can actually share with ANYONE and NO one should feel offended. I am so pleased with the results. He was so sweet, so perfect.

Kai the Rockstar

Kai wanted his Mohawk for the summer. We were cutting hair last night and decided since it was the last week, why not? So my boy has the Mohawk. It actually fits him quite well. You should have seen the looks he was getting from all the teachers as I dropped him off today. I just do not understand what the big deal is. I have never understood hair as a problem. I guess I am a bad mom for letting him do it but oh well. What do you think?? Is it wrong, in poor taste or judgement to let your child have a Mohawk or any other *wild* hair cut? Let me know, I can agree to disagree ;)

This is a picture for later reading....

So here's the lowdown from last week. Let's see, Keara got in trouble for her shorts being too tight for school...WTF they were bike shorts but she is in 3rd grade! Whatever. Then she got in trouble for doodling in her journal, WTF again! Isn't a journal a place of self expression?? Whatever again! Next, she comes home to tell us that she has a project that is overdue. I never, not one freaking time heard of this project. It was assigned in March! DUH, don't ya think they could have sent us a note?? Freaking whatever! Then she had her chorus program and I didn't sing, so I was getting some really nasty looks and she was literally growling at me from the risers. I so adore being such a bad mom! And no not whatever.

The best is yet to come....Keara told the boys to rub poison ivy all over their bodies. Well Kai was smarter than that and didn't do it. Drig wasn't and he rubbed it on his belly. Speed forward to later that night when he is bathing and I notice a faint black spot on his belly along with various other weird spots. Nothing resembling poison ivy I might add. The next day, the spot is DARK black and looks like a mole. Of course I freaked out a little and took him to the Dr. She had no idea either. She took a picture and had another Dr. look, gave us some steroids and said to call her on Mon. So, over the weekend I hunted down various articles, apparently it's rare but you can get what is called black spot poison ivy. His now looks like poison ivy would as the black spots have either fallen off or been scratched off. It just freaking figures that he has to go and get something rare...imagine that!! And the ring leader....no spots what so ever for her! Whatever!!!
