Noggin Juice

Tommy has this Spot on his head on which his hair is constantly matted.

We bathe him every night and he goes to bed with a clean non-matted noggin, but somehow by morning he has The Spot of matted hair.

Josh asked what was up with that (actually I think he asked why I never wash Tommy's head), so I confessed my suspicions that his noggin' is leaking from the inside out. He must have a hole in his head and his noggin juices are leaking through it causing the matted spot. We should probably get him in to see a specialist. It seems the only reasonable explanation to me.

Until this morning anyway. When I watched Tommy stick his hand in his bowl of oatmeal then very gingerly reach up and touch his head with one finger. Right. in. The Spot.

It isn't a stretch to say that there is daily some kind of gunk on his hands which would cause matting upon contact.

It is nice to know his brain isn't leaking out of his head though. Also it's nice to know that I haven't completely lost my ability to panic at an unreasonable level.
