winner of the best hair is

This is Fin.

Fin is in his first year of Awana.

Fin had crazy hair night on tuesday for Awana.

Fin needed some GEL in order to have crazy hair.

I let Fin do his own hair.

Fin finds some GEL….all on his own.

 The next morning i walk into boys bathroom to clean up.

I find the GEL that Fin used in his hair for Awana.

I call bryan at work and ask him if he saw the GEL that Fin used.

Bryan laughs and says yes….he saw it….but didn’t want to tell me.

Fin comes home with a prize for having the best crazy hair.

Fin said his hair felt great all night.

Note to self:  need to monitor children more closely.

Note to KY jelly company:  your GEL works REALLY well to spike hair.

Note to Bryan:  please put GEL away so that our children don’t have to go to therapy.

Note to mother in law:  let me have a glass or two of wine before you call me.

The end.


p.s.  Winner of the Silhouette book is: #44 Rebecca {life on decatur}…and the small gift package

is #185 Amy {easy does us}. Email me girls.

  20. Thank you for the laugh.

  21. You have no idea how much I needed a laugh today.
    Thank you!!!

  22. Awana just called…they want the trophy back….something about improper use of hairgel.

  23. FUNNIEST post I’ve read in a long time!!!!! Thank you for giving me a giggle.

  24. LOVE it.

    a few years ago, our foster daughter found our “hair” gel on the nightstand and asked what it was. i told her it helped Toby relax so he could go to sleep at night. after that, she would often say, “Dad, do you need your sleep medicine tonight?”

    of course, he always said yes!

  25. OMG! Thank you for the much needed laugh. This was hysterical!! 🙂

    Still giggling….


  27. HA!!! That is great!! My daughter found our KY and thought it was lotion. The hair gel story is better! Thanks for the laugh!!

  28. I was immediately drawn in to this post by the red Sparks vest….We called it Sparkies when I was little. I went to Awana from Fin’s age to 7th grade at my church. I can just imagine Fin quoting Bible verses in his crazy do!!! This is a great story, and I am sure your mother-in-law must be so proud;)

  29. This has got to be the FUNNIEST POST I have ever read! Thank you so much for having the ‘guts’ to share it with all of us.

  30. Awesome. Just, awesome.

  31. Oh wow!!! HAAAAAAAAAAAA LMAO..

    Nothing more I can add cause I’m just dying with laughter..

  32. I see the stock in KY going up rapidly. Thank god you invested in them last month!
    Fin will surely be keeping you on your toes – the spiky hair looks good with those fabulous bangs!

  33. Oh my GOSH Kasey. That is too funny. Shared with my co-worker for a good laugh too. Your kids are always keeping me smiling!

  34. oh my gosh this was the funniest thing I have ever read!!!!! I didn’t know KY came in that HUGE of a bottle!!


  35. I have to add that it is so sweet how innocent Fin looks with his hair spiked in ky jelly!

  36. That is the funniest thing I have ever read and it’s one of those stories that you want to share, but you’re not sure…. and I am SO GLAD you did. Your life is absolutely hysterical!

  37. I also had to add look at the octopus next to the gel like “What the heck is going on with THIS?”


  38. When I was a kid, a friend and I came across tissues and KY under her dad’s bed… Innocently we asked my older sister what it was and she very kindly *cough cough* told me she didn’t know and to ask ‘Brown Owl’ at Brownies that night… and so, when it came to circle time… I put my hand up and asked… I can’t remember what answer she gave, but it definitely wasn’t the right one… me and my friend still laugh about it now, so I guess your little boy will be recalling this in years to come! Lx

  39. I love Fin. I love the name Fin and I’d love to name a bunting baby that one day (from Phinheas in Exodus). I love that he loves hair gel, and I love your blog.

  40. No way.

  41. Reminds me of the Tampax toothpaste a little friend of mine had.

  42. OH MY Goodness… that has got to be the funniest thing I have read/seen in a LONG time. Thanks for the gut laugh!

  43. you are my daily dose of style or laughter or both. can’t wait to meet you in person some day! hugs!

  44. I so needed a good laugh today! THANKS!

  45. hahaha I saw this ky jelly and was laughing before I even read what you wrote! GREAT story! I will be sure to share this one! Thanks Kasey!

  46. you have now officially become the first blog i will check everyday.
    the note to your mother in law is what won me over. 🙂

  47. LMAO!


  49. Hilarious! Thanks for a good laugh:)

  50. Fin’s hair rocks!!!! I see this as the next commercial that comes on at 8 PM right after the Viagra commercial….. something like if it last longer then 8 hours make sure you have the KY to style your hair!
    loved the laugh,

  51. thank you for the hugest laugh out loud I have had in a while! It feels so good to know that crazy sh*t happens in other people’s lives! <3 the hair Fin!!!!

  52. Well it is Gel afterall. I wonder if it kept his head warm.

  56. hiya, i dont normally leave a comment (slack) but do read all the time. This time I had to say that this is the most hilarious post i have read in a looong time
    thanks for a good morning coffee splurt

  57. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! And I see you decided not to post the box…I guess my instructions stunk, huh? 😉

  58. That is funny! My kids went through Awana too! My husband and I did our time as leaders… oy yoi yoi…
    My husband had quite a group! I’m thinking that’s why his hair didn’t turn gray, it just fell out. He’s kinda
    bald now (but still very handsome)… I’m on my second glass by the way.

  59. That a boy fin… Way to market that jell that never gets used anyway… 🙂
    So glad you share these great stories with us…

  60. oh man that is funny. I don’t think “astroglide” is quite as ‘gel-like’ so hopefully none of my boys will confuse the stuff!

  61. You are hilarious!!! The joys of parenting 🙂 Smiles, jackie

  62. Hahahaha! That’s so funny….awe kids….they’re the greatest!

  66. I am dying right now…but nonetheless he looks so cute!!!

  67. OMG that is so funny.! What lurks behind closed cupboard doors is a blog post in itself. I stayed with some people once and borrowed their hairdyer which they told me I could find in their bedroom. Beside their bed was an indistrial size KY. they must have got it from a medical supply house. I did chuckle. Next day they moved it.

  68. That is easily the most awesome / SOOO glad that didn’t happen to me story I have heard, maybe ever!

  69. hahaha! this was so funny that i had to show my husband. he laughed. 🙂

    sooo um, has he asked what happened to his hair gel yet?

  70. LOL! That one takes the cake! Bryan needs to remember to put the gel away………:)

  71. Oh my…I think this may be your funniest post ever! You are the best, Kasey…simply the best:)
    P.S. Fin’s hair does look great;)

  72. Too funny! Boy do I hear a rehearsal dinner speech in the making!

  73. OMG…that is classic!!!
    Now when it comes time to have “THE TALK” with little fin {in MANY years to come}…this would be a great ice-breaker 🙂 LOL

  74. I have never laughed so hard reading a post…LOL! Good one!

  75. You are hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!

  76. That is sooooooooo funny! Fin your hair looks fantastic.

  77. Thanks for the chuckle. This may be the funniest thing Ive seen all week.

  78. oh, that is too funny!!!!!

  79. My wife shared this story with me. Hilarious! I used to be that cute but my hair fell out. Old guys do cute things too though. Like this winter when I accidentally brushed my teeth with Preparation H. Makes your lips and gums go numb.

  92. sara noland says:

    Kasey!!! I can’t wait till Fin is old enough to tell him what he used in his hair. Now that is an awesome story to hang over him. 🙂

  93. That is hilarious about the gel!! Seriously! I loved Awana when I was a kid so this brough back memories.

  94. ~*~*LOL.. love your posts!!! I cant believe he used the KY for his hair!! too funny… xo Rachel ~*~*

  95. wide awake in the middle of the night with jet lag. Knew there was only one thing to do – catch up with your blog! This one had me laughing until there were tears in my eyes. Your blog is just the best therapy a girl can get. I’ve always got the biggest grin on my face by the time I get to the bottom of the page. Thank you!

  96. oh my word! hahahahhah!

    Sometimes I tell my husband about things you blog about and I will say, “you know the one, who gets CPS called on her and the one whose kids called the fire department…” But now it will be, “you know the one, whose kid put KY in his hair!”

    LOVE IT! Wait until he is old enough to know what that is! aaah! 🙂

  97. i am late to the game
    in the eighties
    i wore KY in my hair all the time
    it was the best stuff

    love your blog
    the way you write
