It’s been hot here in the Midwest. The temperature has been rising up to the high 80’s to low 90’s for the past few days now but factor in the humidity and it feels more like high 90’s to low 100’s… that’s just plain ol’ oppressively hot. While I’m loving the sunshine, I’m not a fan of feeling like you’ve walked into a sauna as soon as you open the front door.
I must say though that it has been nice here in the house. The air has been running non stop and has been doing a good job keeping both the heat and humidity under control here in the house… during the day at least. At night the temperature drop outside and the air doesn’t kick on… and it gets hot and uncomfortable in the house again. Noah’s room tends to be the worst and sometime during the night he will come crawling into our bed to cool off in our room. When that’s not good enough for him anymore, he will get up slide out of bed and head to the top of the (gated) stairs. I’ve spent part of the past two nights with him downstairs on the couch, just because it’s cooler down here and he can get to sleep again.
Ray has been talking of buzzing off Noah ‘s hair for a few weeks now and I have always veto’d it. I was afraid of what he would look like and I didn’t think that he had enough hair to pull off that look. Seeing my child so miserably hot and sweaty within minutes of falling asleep though has changed my mind.
And so that is why my son went from looking like this:
to looking like this:
and while it didn’t stop us from sleeping down on the couch again at 4 am, it did help with the sweaty head problem!
