I am taking tons of pictures of it lately because it totally cracks me up and pretty much anyone who sees him these days. When we were at the mall the week between Christmas and New Years he was the hit of the place as I strolled him around and basically anywhere we go I get comments. I have never gotten this kind of attention in my life (or any “kind” for that matter!).
I took this picture in front of a window, without the flash so that the “halo” effect could present itself in the most delightful way.
Now there can be a downside to the “hair attention” as I will tell you in this quick story. Yesterday a woman at church, who I have spoken to before but do not know her name or anything about her, besides that she goes to our church, “saliva-ed” my son’s hair.
Yes folks, she did.
She licked her finger and before I could do anything, patted his hair down with her now wet forefinger. I don’t know what she was saying after that because I was too busy saying to myself,
“Did she really just do that? Really? Seriously, did no-name lady just put her finger in her mouth and then on my son’s head??”
And get this.
Before I could lift my jaw off the ground she was doin’ it AGAIN! I guess she was not satisfied with the results of her first attempt so she proceeded to lick and repeat!
Oh well, he’s no worse for the wear, but GEEZ I cannot believe what people will do sometimes. Do we really need to be reminded not to lick our fingers and put them in someone else’s child’s hair? Well, if so, here is YOUR reminder, keep your licked digits to yourself! ; ) HA!
Anyway, enjoy the fuzz picture and if you get the chance to touch it you are lucky. Please let’s just make sure it’s with a nice, dry hand.
