So while we were at the orthotist a few weeks ago picking up Hasya’s body brace, I casually asked the guy whether it would be possible to custom-make a very small, non-invasive helmet for Hailee. She goes through so many pilot caps from scratching holes in them. When her hats are off she constantly pulls on her ears and the left-hand side of her head is pretty much bald from pulling her hair out.
A helmet! Small, light, easy-to-wear, simple.
Of course he could make one, he assured me. Just the way I wanted it!
Today Hailee and I went to pick it up.
Imagine my surprise….
Oh my goodness, we laughed!
Small, non-invasive, easy-to-wear all day long.
What in the world was he even thinking? Wrestler? Extreme sports enthusiast? So funny.
But thankfully, as you can tell, this girl is such a trooper. She is so absolutely adorable!
Hailee’s game for anything–and she will willingly meet anyone on the carpet for a game of wrestling.
Nobody can rock this pink head armor like Hailee can!
But still, something a wee bit more girly and petite would be so much better, thank you very much.
Back to the drawing board we go.
