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