The Gallery: Hair

“Gimme a head with hair, long beautiful hair: shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen.  Give me it down to there, shoulder length & longer, here baby, there mama, everywhere daddy daddy! Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair! Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it: my hair.

“Let it fly in the breeze & get caught in the trees, give a home to the fleas in my hair. A home for fleas, a hive for bees, a nest for birds. There ain’t no words for the beauty, the splendour, the wonder of my hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair! Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it: my hair

“I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy, snaggy, shaggy, ratty, matty, oily, greasy, fleecy, shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen, knotted, polka-dotted, twisted, beaded, braided, powdered, flowered, and confettied, bangled, tangled, spangled, and spaghettied!

Oh say can you see my eyes? If you can then my hair’s too short! Down to here, down to there, down to where it stops by itself. Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair! Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it: my hair!”

“Hair” from “Hair” by the cast of “Hair”

Sorry, couldn’t resist that. You see the theme for Tara Cain’s Gallery at Sticky Fingers this week is (you guessed it): “Hair”

This week we’ve been bathing Jallie in the big bath with the Mummy.  They love it! There are many things that they find hilarious:

– silly frogs that make bubbles when you hold them underwater

– plastic balls that jump up from the water when you hold them under & let go

– me dropping ducks & other ordnance from a great height while making silly bombing type noises

– trying to ‘catch’ the water as it streams out from stacky cups

– and of course splash fights!

They also, Ellie especially, seem to find it doubly hilarious when they see each others’ hair wet!

I’d love to say that I’d love to to have a baby’s sense of humour. They find so many things uproariously funny! I can’t say it of course – because I think I already do…

A tenuous link, you say? OK then: here’s a picture of Ellie’s hair. Nice, innit? 🙂

For more hairy posts head on over to Sticky Fingers (click the pic):

PS: is there some sort of prize for the number of times the Gallery theme has been written in a post? If so, I think I should be in with a shout…
