Like many young children, Maxi forgets to brush the back of his hair. He does a real nice job with the sides and top but will leave the back a tangled wreck. Tired of telling him a few thousand times to brush the back, too! I finally asked "Why don't you brush the back?" as I was taking the brush out of his hand to do it myself.
His reply? "I'm allergic to brushing the back, Mommy!"
Chuckling, I brushed it for him and with each stroke of the brush he gave me a pretend sneeze to prove just how allergic he is.
What's a mom to do, anyway, with a silly kid like this?!
