You know I thought I’d heard all the crazy comments from random strangers in shopping centres when the girls were little.
Having two tiny identical looking babies kind of attracts the nutters. I’ve been asked if I had sex in some special way to get twins, if they can read each other’s minds, if they are real, and more ‘double trouble’s than I care to remember.
When I had one, normal sized, singleton baby I figured we’d fly under the radar. Except for a few ‘aw how cute’ comments when he was tiny I thought we’d avoid all the crazies that the girls seem to attract.
How wrong I was.
Perhaps I just have ‘make a stupid comment about my children’ written on my forehead because we were stopped by four different people in the short time we were out this morning, all exclaiming over Muski’s hair.
“Is it real?????”
(no, it’s a wig!)
“Is it natural???”
(no, I peroxide my almost two year olds hair every 4 weeks to get it to look like this)
“He can’t be a boy with such gorgeous hair!”
(of course not, boys can’t be beautiful.)
And the winner today….
“Is he healthy? Sick babies have hair like that”
Yes… he has blonde hair. Yes, white blonde hair. Haven’t you people seen anyone with very blonde hair before? I’m sure I saw at least three other similarly haired children at the shops this morning… it’s not that unusual is it?
