this is what happens....


...when your little one decides to style his own hair...


...with pancake syrup....

the cutest, stickiest faux hawk ever...
...and what's worse...?
...oh, me not having the heart to clean him up right away...
I know, I know... that's crazy right?!?!
but it was only for a little while...
and what would you do if your kiddo...



...whipped this puppy-dog face out at you?

uh huh.
 The hawk would stay...
No worries... it's long gone by now :)

We'll try some actual hair products next time.
Promise :)


and
 then, she {snapped}

Saw this on facebook. How cute is this little guy? Hey mom, he's smarter than you think. Back in our day, before all the fancy smancy ways to put bows in little ones hair we placed them in with a dab of Karo syrup. He's just a darling blast from the past.
