Ouch!

I am playing with my son while he is on my lap. He reaches up, grabs a fistful of hair and yanks down. I could hear the rip of my hair detaching from my scalp! Yikes, that did not feel good.

    Owie! It is tough when they discover hair. I know the more reaction I had the more mine wanted to pull! But it was sure hard to hold in a yelp when it hurt!

    Yes, it is. I go, "Mmmm" and whimper a little. He has grasped my hair before but this time, he pulled down and hard!

    I actually cut my hair for this very reason...which worked for a few months until he got older. I like my hair down as well.

    The odd thing is, I have dangly earrings and wear a necklace once in a while, and he hasn't bother grabbing those, just my hair. A lot of babies have reached for the curls. They are not streamers. Lol
