Our son had to get 2 stitches the other day when he cut his head after falling.  We’ve been thinking about how to prevent this type of thing from happening again, since he seems prone to falling and hitting his head.  People have suggested a helmet but that seems a little extreme – in particular because it protects parts of his head that aren’t in any danger. The only part of his head that’s in danger is his forehead.  With that in mind, I hit on an idea – a headband/sweatband.

Yesterday, my wife went out to Target and came home with a headband for him. You can see a picture of him wearing it by clicking the link below.

    That kid looks frighteningly familiar to someone I used to know. I hope the headband works. At the very least, he’ll have a unique look to all of his childhood photos.

    Thsnks for the comments, guys. We think he looks pretty cute, too, though once he grows out of this phase, I think we’ll retire the headband.
