12 Days of Christmas Chaos: Day 7

On the 7th day of Christmas Chaos I would like the universe to give to me...7 Hairs Not Thinning.

One of the highlights of the holiday season is the annual trip to the local department store for a family picture. My wife's family is always asking us for an updated family picture that they can proudly display (I image the conversation when their friends come over going like this, "..and this, everyone, is my handsome son-in-law. Oh yes, he is the world famous Stunt Chad. Oh, how nice of you to notice. We wanted our daughter to marry a doctor, but we never dreamed she might be able to actually nab herself a Stunt Dad.").  The family picture is a great way to capture the excitement of the season, the incredible growth of the children, and oh yeah, the yearly progress of my thinning hair.

Now I'm not a vain person, but I have to admit that every time I look at  the picture, the first thing I think is, "Wow. I am really losing my hair!" For those of you that have don't know me, I have always had very lush dark hair that I've "styled" with some gel to get that "I don't care enough to try, but not so much that I am homeless" look.  It all started to go a couple of years ago (I won't blame the kids, but the timing between their arrival and my follicle challenges is quite the coincidence). I was forced to pull a George Clooney and push what hair I had left forward. This has worked for a while, but now I am starting to see the emergence of a cranial crescent moon shining through the front of my Clooney cut. I think I might be forced to transition to a Matt Lauer or maybe just skip that step entirely and go straight to the Stone Cold Steve Austin...but the Better Half is not ready for me to pull the trigger on that yet (something about me looking like a serial killer).

So universe, what I could really use this year is a little help with the old hair line. I am not asking for a miracle, just a stop to the cowardly retreat.
