Here’s what happened: I washed Tyoma’s hair today, first time in probably two months. He screams bloody murder when I shampoo him, so why make life miserable for both of us? Since the whole PDD-NOS thing has cropped up, I’m glad to find a slew of moms online with similarly wired children.
Anyway, he wailed and shook and clawed at me as I washed his hair. Afterward, I brought out his foamy alphabet letters and a piece of candy as a reward. He immediately spelled “DIE.” I snapped this picture before he had a chance to spell out “VILE SHAMPOOING MAMA.”
ETA: This only gets funnier: my mom saw this picture and freaked. She called me and told me I should just leave his hair alone. She also asked in all earnestness, “Do you think he knew what it meant?” I had to laugh and talk her out of the notion that my son wants to kill me for washing his hair. She was completely serious!
