Scene: Homemade Hair

Baby A assaults his older sister pretty frequently. She’s usually pretty calm about it – unless he assaults her own homemade hair. Then she makes a scene.


(Scene: I’m washing dishes when I hear a commotion in the next room).

Me: Be gentle!

(I can’t hear what K is saying, but I know she’s angry)

Me: Remember, if Baby A’s bugging you, you don’t hit. You ask Mommy for help.

K: (Some kind of grouchy mumbling) Help mees.

Me: Okay, I’m coming to help.

(I walk in the room to see Baby A once again reaching for K’s hair and eagerly yanking.)


Me: I’ve got him, I’ve got him.

(I remove the aggressor from the situation, taking him into the kitchen and sitting him in the high chair.)

K: (Still grumbling.)

Me: Are you okay, grouchypants?

K: He pulled my hair! (She comes into the room and charges up to the high chair, pointing an accusing finger at Baby A) No pulling, Baby A! Dat’s my favorite hair! I yike it! I made it myself!

Me: …You…you made your hair yourself?

K: Yes! I made all of dees hairs and I very much yike it!

  1. I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one that says ‘be gentle’ to the kids a soon as arguing ensues! The number of people that look at me like I’m nuts is pretty crazy!

  2. Sounds like a common scene in our home only now it’s not just hair pulling. Ahhh… siblings!

  3. Too funny! I can’t wait til my toddler is using full sentences so I can record all the funny things he will inevitably say!

  4. Awww…too cute! What goes through their heads? Thankfully, my girls never went for each other’s hair (or haven’t yet?), but with my youngest being only 4 months, I suppose there’s still a possibility for hair pulling in our future.

  5. The challenges with the workplace will probably be manifold and quite obviously the rewards (including but not
    confined to monetary) may also go up. A discount peet healkthcare program ccan be a
    great boon for the pets and the pet owners.

    It is very important for people to realize that payday loans are not created for
    long term, or recurring situations.
