Day 71 – Big Hero and Blitzkrieg Bop

This kid.

We’re slowly moving out of the crazy not-listening, tantrum-throwing phase and into that sweet spot where we get to really see Henry’s personality starting to shine. He’s still my introverted, contemplative boy who likes to crawl up on Momma’s lap and snuggle. But he’s starting to learn that if you want to stand a chance in the Romano house, you gotta turn up the volume.

He’s also got a wicked sense of humor, a killer smile, and stubborn streak that can drive you to the very edge of sanity.

We’ve officially mastered the potty training, and now we’re working hard on eating better dinners without staging massive protests. So yeah, we hit a milestone and got a new toy. And tonight, H-man celebrated by getting to play a little Spiderman on the Playstation while singing his new favorite song, Blitzkrieg Bop.

This boy is either going to be a rockstar, a lawyer, or a stand-up comedian. And no matter how it shakes out, it’s sure going to be an exciting ride.

Who else would it be but Henry?

I’m honestly at a loss of how to solve this kid’s crazy hair problems short of shaving him bald. I don’t know if it’s just a wicked cowlick, something about the way I’m cutting his hair, or maybe he’s got some sort of weird electricity running through his little body that makes his hair perpetually stand on end. We’ve tried wetting it, combing it, slicking it down with extra hold mousse but honestly everything we’re tried has only made things worse.

Plus, Henry has decided he likes his crazy hair (he thinks it makes him look like two of his favorite cartoon characters, Hiro from Big Hero 6 and Sora from the Kingdom Hearts video games) so he’s taken to running away from us every time we tell him we want to help him with his hair.

At this point, it doesn’t even really bother as much as it cracks me up. As long as his hair is clean, I don’t really care if it’s sticking up all over the place. I’ve got much bigger battles to fight with this kid. 😉
