You’re looking mighty hot in that picture, I must say.
First of all, does anyone else feel like they could’ve fed their baby scrabble pieces and he could’ve crapped out a better post than the last one I wrote? My god, people. She stared preschool, it wasn’t so horrible, I felt inadequate as always in the face of organized parents. The end. Now, everyone run and go star that post as your all time favorite so we can look back and feel the way we do about skinny jeans: WHAT were we thinking?
Yes? Moving along then.
We all know how luscious and shiny your hair gets during pregnancy. It’s one of the only lovely things that happen. :: hurl, puke, hurl, gag :: ooohh, look! shiny, pretty hair! It’s like the “glow” (read: sweat) that one achieves whilst growing a human being. Everyone is jealous of your hair until three months postpartum when you audition for the hair club. I’ve started the process of shedding. There is hair everywhere. It’s horrid. I clean the bathroom almost daily because the hair collects on the floor and I wonder where our new rug came from. I can collect enough hair after blow-drying it to make a faux coat. Need that slick, stylish, fur coat without all the pesky animal cruelty? Come to my house daily at about 7AM. We’ll have you sporting your new coat by 7:30.
At this rate I fear for my future. I’m about three weeks away from being the mister.
Well, the mister with boobs, that is.
You’re looking mighty hot in that picture, I must say.
Honey. More calcium! Hair-teeth-skin-nails-PMS. It does it all. Calcium Citrate is easy to digest and you need to be taking it. Ask your doctor—mine told me 1,500-2,000 mg. a day is good, even for those of us who aren’t nursing.
I’m feeling like Dr. Bronner here, sorry.
Well… hopefully the top goes first. The at least you can have a skullet for a day or two - but you HAVE to promise pictures.
I will try the calcium advice from Wacky Mommy…‘cause I am there too. I hate my hair. Never thought I would say that, but I do. It has no life. But you know that, why do I need to tell you what you already know?
I will email you soon with our trying-to-get-our-son-into-preschool-experiences. Maybe I am just pulling my hair out…or that is just making matters worse. AGH.
Welcome to the club! My “baby” is almost 5 years old and I still lose a ton of hair all the time… it’s disgusting, it gets everywhere and yet I still have a head of hair. I should be bald by now. Sometimes I think I would rather be bald than have to deal with hair everywhere!
My hair is all over the freaking place. Every hair bindy tie thing I use I have to clip the hairball off at the end of the day… er… whenever I get around to actually doing it.
Oh ... the sniffs? I wanted to know the age difference in our boys (25 days) so I looked back at the older posts. Sniff. sniff. So Tiny…
Going bald with ya.
I feel like I’m morphing into my husband sometimes, too. Like when I sit in just my underwear in front of the TV and call for someone to bring me a beer from the kitchen.
And then comes baby bangs…I have a whole inch long fringe going on in the front and some lovely pieces that stick up along my part. I got these the first time arounf too and my hairdresser just laughed and laughed!
You look good bald in a distinguished Jean-Luc Picard star trek kind of way!
LOL. Just found your blog thru cre8Buzz. Love your sense of humor.
If my head were not so lumpy and warped, I’d shave my head in a heartbeat. Never have liked “styling” the mess. Maybe you could start something.?
I didn’t get the nice, thick, shiny hair that all the books talked about. Instead, my stick-straight hair started going spiral curly, but only along my hairline and part. When I pulled my hair back into a pony tail, I looked like a giant vajayjay that was about 2 weeks past due a Brazilian. Imagine what THAT looked like when it all started falling out on my bathrooom floor.
(BTW, it never went back to straigh. Bah humbug.)
omfg.. I didn’t start hardcore shedding until about 2 months ago..and there. is. hair. EVERYWHERE!!! My infant forever has fistfuls of his mommy’s hair! My toddler brings me *every* piece he finds! uggghhhhhh. Your coat idea’s pretty nifty. Maybe I could start making hair skirts instead of those grass ones.
Don’t hate me, but I’m totally laughing.
Love this blog! I just went through the whole hair thing myself. I miss pregnant hair. I miss me in pregnany hair, it had body, it had bounce, I could go days and not wash it. While I gave up on the hair (and nails and skin), which I had no control over,I am holding onto the boobs. I am still nursing at 9 months, but, when she’s weaned, I am thinking about pumping once a day for the rest of my life. I’ll say I have milk implants. Why not? If not atleast handy in a survival situation or something. In a few years I could always be the “Amazing Lactating Granny!”.
This is soo true. I have several hair coats in my closet. It’s too bad they are all blonde coats with black roots.
To be honest, I could stand to lose some hair, so maybe having a baby is the way to go. Though I’m guessing a quick hair cut might be easier and less time consuming. We shall see.
I’m just impressed that you have time to blow dry your hair with 2 kids (and a 3 month old, no less).
my GAWD LEs…you are killing me. You kinda look like a ferengi. Who knew you were a star trek freak like me?!
I’ve got my mom’s thick hair gene. And it falls out by the truckload. I practically have to Liquid Plumr the shower drain daily.
My bathroom floor is covered too! Except this time it’s falling out more now that I’m pregnant! Whats up with that? Last night Aaron hopped in the shower with me. Only to find my hair wrapped around some very interesting body parts of his.
Seeing as how I have this aversion to unattached hair, this was the worst part of pregnancy to me. Not the giant head coming out of my hoo-ha, not the peeing on myself every time I sneezed, not the smushy stomach - my hair falling out. It made me gag, and I didn’t even have morning sickness.
Bald is hot these days, isn’t it?
You look HAWT bald!
My hair hasn’t begun to shed yet, nor have my thighs and muffin top.
I love your new layout! That martini looks like a little slice of heaven.
Yeah…I did the whole not lose a single hair off my head throughout my entire last pregnancy, and then the freak out mode several weeks postpartum when it began falling out in wads and I was seeing bald spots on my head. I eventually discovered that no matter how hard I worked at it, I couldn’t lose a pound of fat for nothin’, but I could lose handfuls of hair without even tryin’. My nutritionist finally diagnosed my with hypothyroidism. Viola! After beginning thyroid replacement, I stopped losing hair and started dropping pounds. One other suggestion that has really helped me: take Biotin. It’s an over the counter vitamin B and specifically helps with hair. When I stopped taking it for six weeks because I thought I might not need it anymore, my hair started falling out again. Give it a try.
You’re still hot. Plus, shiney.
My youngest is three and for some reason I’m going through the hair loss thing all over again. What’s up with that?!!
