Ok, all of my American friends are freaking out at my bald headed child, but my Bangladeshi friends know what has happened. In Bangladesh, kids get their heads shaved often from the time they are born. This is for a few reasons. 1 - it's hot here. 2 - the hair grows back thicker and darker. 3 - tradition. I can now tell all the bangladeshi people who ask me that YES, HIS HEAD HAS BEEN SHAVED. I know, he looks like a cancer patient. He thinks he looks like a pirate.
