H is for Hair #A2ZChallenge

“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.” – Khalil Gibran

I was born with a full head of hair. Everyone who came to meet me was amazed to see my hair. Some people would also ask Mommy whether she had acidity when I was in her tummy. Despite people telling her not to comb my hair, Mommy combed my hair with a soft brush even in the hospital! She loved my soft locks. Though these days my tresses have become more like porcupine quills.

Baby A

People make all sorts of comments when they look at my hair. Someone also told Mom that I am thin because of my hair. What that person meant was, all the nutrition is going into the hair which is why I am not gaining weight. I wonder whether they are aware that hair is dead and a waste product!

Mommy makes sure that she takes care of my hair. She regularly oils my hair, washes them with a  mild baby shampoo and then combs them with a brush that has real soft bristles. Miss A also eyes this soft baby pink brush of mine.

My family is very fond of my hair and each one styles them according to their wishes. My sister has kept her baby hair clips for me. One day she wanted me to wear a clip, so Mommy carefully helped her to do the same.

Miss A has a doll whom she calls Rapunzel. Though the doll is not at all pretty or attractive, I love playing with it. Her long hair really fascinates me. By mistake whenever the doll is left by my side, I pull her hair and yes, they go straight into my mouth. Miss A also has a very colourful braid which she dangles in front of me from time to time, to catch my attention. Am sure very soon I will be able to get hold of this braid and that too shall go into my mouth 😉 First I pull the doll’s hair and then when I am sleepy I pull my hair.

If people feel I have too much hair then I am sure they have not seen Baby Chanco. She was born with an amazing mane. When she turned 1, she became a full-blown hair model for Pantene. Wow! Maybe one day I too would be like her.

Baby Chanco

What do think of my future, would I be able to take Baby Chanco’s place?

Well, about me I can say that I am a certified dentist, healthcare analyst, medical writer and above all a mother of a 6-year-old. Most of my day to day activities revolve around her and she is my inspiration to start this blog. As a mother, I experimented with a lot of new things for my little one in a quest to find the best for her. I just want to share my experiences of being a happy and content mum.

      I guess it is just an old wives tale. It has something to do with the hormones.

    Aah! never heard about baby Chanco until this post. Quite a heart warming write up this one. Both my boys were born with next to no hair and even now their hair isn’t too heavy. I hope as they grow up they have more hair on their head.

    I had never heard of Baby Chanco. Your posts are overloaded with cuteness and a nice read at the end of the day. They always bring a smile. I hope Baby A grows up with beautiful hair and gives stiff competition to Baby Chanco.

    I love the sweetness and cuteness in your posts. And yes everything that babies can get hold of does go into their mouths. I didn’t know about Babu Chanco. That hair has got me envious. I have lost the thickness of my hair after shifting to Bangalore.

    Such a cute post. I don’t have any stories about my childhood, however, I have loads of stories about my own pregnancy and motherhood. You won’t believe it, when my little girl had to undergo mundan, my husband went bald, just to give her company. I love playing with my kids’ hair…gosh…i could go on and on…
    Your post triggered so many wonderful memories.

    Is that really your baby with different hairstyles? She looks adorable…. And it is such fun to do a baby’s hair. Believe it or not I still have a lock of my baby’s hair ( 37 years old now) and I found it kept in my jewelry box! I love your hairy post.

      No the baby with different hairstyles is not my baby. It is just a meme. You must have gone back to memory lane on finding your baby
