Lucas gets crazy bed head hair when we wakes up. Like sticking-up-all-over-the-place crazy. Sometimes it's because his hair isn't completely dry from his shower when he's going to bed; other times I think it's because he sweats around his head when he sleeps ... so that leaves his hair drying in weird positions.
Most mornings I have to practically stick his head under a faucet to wet it down and get it combed half-way decently.
Then there are times, when his hair is growing out of the layers that were cut in to it, when I try to wet it down there is still a sort of lump under his hair and it just won't lay flat.
The other morning after struggling with that section of his hair once again, I made a comment that sent something like this, "Ugh! Why does your hair have this bump in it?"
As usual, without missing a beat, he was quick with his reply, "Maybe my chromosome told my hair to have a bump in it."
He went there. He was blaming it on the c-c-c-c-c-chromsome. (Yes, when I said to myself he blamed it on the chromosome I heard it in the form of Jamie Foxx's song "Blame It On The Alcohol.")
I guess he was paying a good bit attention when we had the chromosome talk and I told him our chromosomes tell us everything about how we're going to look: what color hair and eyes, how tall, if we're going to have freckles ...
And now his chromosome told his hair to to have a bump in it.
