Tame The Bed Head Beast

I choose my battles with my kids, especially in the morning.  Get them out the door, geared up and bellies fed, that's all I can ask for.  In turn, they usually leave my house looking like they've been through a wind storm.  Like I said, I choose my battles.  I'm lucky to get them out the door in time for the bus.  Every now and then we try to tackle the Bed Head Beast.  I've tried putting a little water on the spot and combing it down, but it bounces right back up. So out comes the gel.  Still bounces right back up!  Seriously?! UGH!  For some reason it never fails to bounce back up and I send my kids on their way sportin' some good bed head.  Until now.

I just had lunch with an old friend and as we were talking over the adventures of parenthood, especially with boys, she shared her Bead Head Fix with me.
  1. Wet a washcloth, more damp than wet.
  2. Lay it on top of the bed head, then go about your morning.  About 5-10 minutes should work.
  3. Take it off to discover bed head no more!

BEFORE: a little rooster tail action





THE FIX: damp washcloth on the head



You and your little man will even get some giggles out of it!



AFTER: Bed Head Beast Under Control


I've done it three days in a row now - works like a charm.
GENIUS! 

The other day I ran across another great tip for anyone living with little boys...Getting Rid of the "Boy Smell" in the Bathroom.  If you have boys, you probably know what I'm talking about.  For those who don't, boys have a way of missing the toilet.  We don't always know it, then there's a lingering smell that is hard to track down and fix.  Check out Ask Anna... for her tips on how to get rid of the "boy smell" in the bathroom. 

I love comments, so please feel free to share any tips and tricks you have from your adventures in parenthood!

  6. Such a simple idea/fix and yet I've NEVER thought to try that. Like you, I've tried combing it down with water or gel and it NEVER works. I am SO excited to try on Monday before school starts. Awesome idea!! Thanks :)

  7. We use the same concept with my big guy but we also put a knit cap on to hold it in place while he's doing his morning routine ;)

  9. I use a washcloth on my 5 yr olds hair every morning, but I get it wet and basically wet down the top of his head and soak the trouble spots before I comb it. Works beautifully! He would probably rather me lay the wash cloth on his head! :)
