Yup. Although I don't ever tease mine - I shudder just imagining having to comb that out!!!

Sucks to find out there's gray in there, eh? At least in the back you can't see them!

I've heard of no-poo'ers that only have to wash once every couple weeks - I'd love that!
Yes on the BO.

I felt like the worst parent ever that day.

Right now I use some random shampoo bar from my health food store. It takes me for ever to wash my hair now, but I only wash it about 2-3 times a week. My hair stays nice and curly with much less frizz! And I have gotten it in _my_ eyes and it didnt send me into a painful rage.
Oh no, poor little guy! I really gotta get the guts up to try it one of these days - not putting it in my eyes, lol, but no-poo in general!

Yup, I'm ready to have a clean and tidy house again. I've barely been getting the minimum done around here since m/s kicked in. Blah. But hopefully over the next couple weeks my energy will all return and the house will be back to normal.

AFM: Still exhausted come evening and can't stay awake past 9pm, but I'm feeling less and less , and it's hitting later and later in the day/evening now - so that's a step in the right direction!

DH was talking to FIL yesterday and FIL said he'll be here on Saturday!!! Can't wait! Saturday is actually our 11th anniversary, but I can't think of a better way to spend our day than moving their things into their new house! We'll get a chance to get away for a night when they're settled in and I'm feeling better (and able to stay awake, lol).
