First Haircut!!!

On Monday night we trimmed Aiden's hair around the edges. We decided it was time to get rid of the mullet. ;)

Here's a 'before' photo so you can see the difference better...

We did the trim ourselves. It was a horrible process. He screamed the entire time. Hopefully we get better at that.

On a different note, I'm starting to feel like Aiden is constantly medicated. He always has something wrong with him. It was the pink eye FOREVER and now? Now it's an upper respiratory infection and Impetigo! Yay! I don't really recommend Googling that for the photos because Aiden's is NO WHERE near as bad as those pictures are. At the moment, it looks like two pimples and two canker sores.

Impetigo is a staph infection. It is contagious, but only from an infected wound to another wound. Sooooo, hopefully no one else will get it. YUCK though, huh?

Aiden has had a new sore crop up every morning since Friday, so I decided to bring him to the Urgent Care Clinic last night. The doctor prescribed only a topical antibiotic since the upper respiratory infection is not bad. You know we're regulars when the technicians recognize me at two separate pharmacies. Eek.

We get to apply a cream 3 times a day for 7-10 days, that "may burn" upon contact. Yay. Oh and the daycare won't let him come back until it's not contagious anymore. I have no idea how long that is, so at least for today he is going to Auntie Ayo's!!

Great job with the haircut!!!

Poor little man! He is sick a lot! Just think - hes getting it all out of the way early. That way - when he gets older - he won't miss any school!
