Would You Look at This Turkey?

No, it's not Crazy Hair Day. This is Zoe Bug in the morning.

As I was wrestling the turkey into the oven this morning, Zoe came in with this sad face, the comb and the squirt bottle, and she wanted me to comb her hair. Right now.

Every time I see this, my heart drops because I know it means 20 more minutes of my life will be spent untangling this mess of a tumbleweed on top of her head.

Her hair gets like this because she rocks at night to soothe herself. Usually it's when she's having a bad dream or she just wakes up and can't get back to sleep.

It started when she was ten months old and I don't know how to stop it.

If nothing else, it's fun to watch. She looks like a jockey on her horse, on all fours with the top of her head rubbing back and forth against the mattress.

Hence the Bed Head.

It's a good thing I got most of my cooking done yesterday.

I'm happy to report that my Mama Llama arrived safely yesterday afternoon, and all is well in the Scott household.

We wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Poor kid:-( I am glad that your mom made it:-) Have a GREAT Thanksgiving:-)

  2. Poor thing! Is her hair long enough to put in some braids at night?

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    btw - I may not have ever commented before, but your daughter pulled me out of lurkdom and forced me to click on your blog from my google reader. :)

  3. Hi Jill,
    Thanks for a great belly laugh!! Mark and the girls had to come see what I was laughing at and they all were really laughing. Juliet was concerned that Zoe looked sad....she can relate!!:)
    Have a great Thanksgiving and say hi to your mom and everyone for us! Love, Beth

  4. Awww.....hopefully she will outgrow the rocking and the resulting bedhead. She is precious, though, even the sad puppy dog look is a little pitiful. Please post a pic of her when she is smiling to make us feel better! LOL! Hope her Thanksgiving brought smiles, and glad your MamaLamma arrived safely!

  5. You're such a liar!! You make her do that to her hair, so she has something to dust with when you force them to dust all your collectibles. Is it magnetic like the Swiffer duster???

    p.s. lucky guess on the "green guilt" :)

  6. Oh that is funny! She definitely does a number on her hair! Glad your Mama Lamma made it safely!

  7. Maybe it's the sign of a genius. Einstein's hair looked like that.

    Poor child. Maybe she could wear a sleeping cap?

  8. That's too cute. Hope the detangling was successful and that your Thanksgiving was blissful!!

  9. Aww! I feel so bad for her! You know what I was browsing through here and then I realized that you can enter that pic into the Sleep Number Bed Photo Contest! You could win a queen bed I think...
