It’s celebration time! I have no idea whether Tucker deciding that he hates me shampooing and rinsing his hair in the tub is a side effect of autism or developmental delays or is it simply a Tucker-quirk. But it’s been sort of sucky lately and makes me feel like an asshole because I end up just dumping a bucket of water over his head while keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t accidentally water-board him.
He hates it.
That is…he did hate it. Until I I had a rare moment of parenting excellence.
I gave him a hand mirror and told him to look at his awesome spiky dinosaur hair.
Here, look. He’s even dumping water on his own head.
If you, too, struggle with being allowed to rinse the shampoo from your kid’s sticky food-encrusted hair, feel free to steal my parenting excellence. It’s far and few, friends, and should be shared whenever it shows itself.
