Did You Just Say Cowlick?

Joshua has one major cowlick. That's right, a cowlick. And no, I did not spell it wrong. And no, I certainly did not use the wrong word. How do I know this? I wish I could say I was smart, but I actually looked it up. Apparently I've been saying it wrong for years, because I always thought it was calic.


He also has some insanely swoopy bangs. Some of you may have thought that I have been purposely doing his hair like this in order to start preparing him for a mission at a young age, but this is not the case. I constantly try to "fix" the swoop but it just keeps going back into its favored position. It looks like a hairstyle from the 60's. Or is that the 70's? I don't know. I wasn't exactly around in either decade.

Thanks for clarifying the 'cowlick' vs 'calic' issue. I will say cowlick with confidence now.

So, I love the swoopy bangs. My girls bangs go straight down into their eyes unless I put their hair up...oh yeah, and Jane has a double cowlick. That's right, two cowlicks...I don't know what I'm going to do with that when it is time to put her hair in a real ponytail.

are you sure?!?

I think calic sounds much better than cowlick. I always thought when people said cowlick they were just confused. haha. Guess I was the one confused all along!

And Joshua is so stinkin cute Rachel! That picture is prize worthy (even with swoopy bangs). haha. Looks like his 'cowlicks' compare to mine!

I was informed of this when I married Alma...aparently I was saying it ALL wrong too!

Oh, and I think his "bangs" are cute....so what if he looks like he's going on 50.
