It’s been a trying day from start to finish. We had victories and moments of sheer terror today.
I’m going to skip the part where Gavin wandered off and ended up lost for short time that seemed like forever because you can read that here. I wrote a post about that earlier and frankly, I don’t have the energy to rehash it right now. Just check out the link if you want to catch up on that.
While we were getting everyone ready for the out of town trip to the dentist, I told Gavin that I wanted to trim his sideburns. They were getting kinda scraggly and needed touched up.
He told me that he wanted to do them himself, using the new razor he got for Christmas last year.
He does a pretty good job shaving and he was insistent on doing this himself. I was trying to get the other two ready so I told him that was fine, as long as he was comfortable doing it.
Next thing I knew, he was freaking out. When he came into the living room to show me why he was upset, it took all I had not to burst out laughing. It was one of those things that’s hilarious but at the same time it wasn’t because he was so upset.
Gavin had tried to trim his sideburns and ended up shaving the side of his head. We’re talking major bald spot, starting from the bottom of where his sideburn was, all the way up the side of his head.
I don’t know what he was thinking but it’s like going into the bathroom to trim your mustache and ending up shaving your eyebrows. I just don’t see how something like that happens but it did and we now had to deal with it.
He let me take a picture but I promised him I wouldn’t publicly share it. I want to show Dr.Pattie because we’re seeing a pretty significant cognitive decline and this is just one example.
I ended up having to shave his head because it was that bad and there was no fixing it.
The boys (Gavin and Elliott) had dental appointments this afternoon and despite the excitement of Gavin wandering off, we made it there right on time. Thankfully, both boys did really well. Lizze went back with them, while Emmett and I waited in the lobby.
