Lil man has suddenly become far more interested in my hair.
I’m not sure why….it’s only on occasion he pays attention to his own. Sometimes he’ll suddenly decide he wants spikes or he’ll want to know if it looks cool, but mostly he’s not bothered at all.
He’s been very tactile when it comes to my hair more recently though, he likes brushing & playing with it and more often than not now, he’ll give it a playful little tug when he gives me a cuddle.
A couple of weeks ago he suddenly declared I should shave it all off
‘You’d look gooder with no hair mummy. Cause then you’d be bald!’
And today he started asking if I had long hair when I was a little girl……
‘Mummy, do you have any pictures of you with long hair? Can I see them?’
‘Yes sweetie, we’ll try & dig them out when we get home so you can see.’
‘Was your hair as long as it is now mummy?’
‘It was longer sweetie. In fact, when I was at school, it was so long my friends used to sit on it by accident!’
‘It wasn’t as long as Rapunzels though.’
‘Um, no, it wasn’t.’
‘Did they laugh at you?
‘No, why do you think they’d have laughed at me?’
‘Cause you would’ve looked FUNNY!! Hahahahahahahaha!!’
Maybe he’s trying to give me some subtle hints that I should do something with it!
Good job that I managed to form a thick skin when I became a mum. If you’re about to become a parent then make sure thats the one thing you work on developing, these kids say stuff as they see it. Tact is something they develop later, I hope.
As is patience!
To be fair, he is right. I’m about due a haircut, it’s been almost a year. Ooops!
Are there any mums out there who do manage regular haircuts? If so please could you share how?
