31 for 21 day 5

Meghan is a moving target, it is so hard to get a good picture of her. She adores this orange top, I hide it from her because she will wear it every day. The black pants too, she gets stuck on wanting to wear them over and over again.

Meghan's charter school is on fall break this week, no schoolwork! I am hoping to get some work done around here this week.

Amanda is feeling much better from her cold sores, she is eating normally again, but they have a ways to go to heal completely. Her mouth is still too tender to brush as well. Her gums ooze blood if we touch them with a cotton swab, the dentist told us to put Maalox on her gums, but that made a bloody mess, terrible. You can tell she is happy again though.

Kara, she loves this time of the year, it is finally cool enough to be outside a lot, but now too cool for swimming, poor girls miss their daily swim. We though about heating up water on the stove and pouring it in to pool for them, but today it actually feels like fall here. I harbor no delusions about the weather though, it will warm up again, and hotter than any of us like!

Kara has crazy hair, the dermatologist told me that children with Down symdrome have differently shaped hair shafts. instead of oval or round, it is more triangular. I cannot see that with Meghan or Amanda, but Kara's hair gets matted easily, and she sports dreadlocks every morning. She cries when I brush them out, I have tried every sort of conditioner for her, nothing helps. Any ideas?

I love my Barbie Dollies, Meghan tells me this when I tell her I love her! Or she tells me she loves Kara. LOL

Have you tried the Biolage de-tangler spray? My sister uses it for her daughter and it works really well.

My hair was super fine and when I would sleep, it would snarl and tangle and it was a pain every morning. My mom would braid it or french braid it - the french braid always came apart tho in the night- and in the morning she would brush it out. It didn't tangle. I don't know if this works with Ds but its worth a try.

Interesting about the hair shafts. I know Kayla's hair is always matted in the back, especially if she's in the car seat or stroller for too long. Tried some detangler spray stuff, but no luck with that!
