a hair raising good time {a scrapbook layout}

Have I ever mentioned that my youngest son, the one we call the Moose, is a bit of a trouble maker? After 4 boys, you'd think I'd be used to that. And for the most part I am. But this little guy; boy, oh boy. It's not that he's intentionally bad, trouble just seems to find him.
You can pretty much guarantee if he's quiet, he's getting into something. And one particular night he was very quiet.

Now, here's the thing about the Lakes men. They have a thing about their hair. It has to look perfect; all the time. And that requires time and a certain amount of hair product. Our oldest boys are ten and "do" their own hair in the main floor bathroom. They use a product called Garnier Surf Gel. It's sticky. VERY sticky.

Moose has witnessed the boys "doing" their hair many, many times. Moose is also potty training, so anytime he independently goes into the bathroom, we are thrilled. As we were the night these pictures were taken.
Except he wasn't going potty. He was "doing" his hair. With a whole tub of hair gel.

I wish I could say this is the first time this has happened, nope. Sneaky little Moose. It took about a half an hour and a LOT of shampoo to get that gel out. The funniest part? About a week later I got a text from my husband while I was grocery shopping. All it said was "He did it again. Get Hair Gel. And More Shampoo."
