I have not been able to wear my hair down lately, as NikkiZ likes to grab a hold of it and yank it with more force than I think small infants should logically possess. Where did she get that upper-body strength? She still can’t even hold herself up on her knees and arms, yet she has the muscle to scalp me in one move. And then laugh. And let me tell you, it is impossible to yell at a giggling infant with cheeks as yummy as hers.
So, on days like today when I shower (it’s rare, I know) before work, I put my hair up wet in a clip when I go feed NikkiZ. I just got back from nursing her and went to the bathroom to let down my hair. I popped the clip out and did the shake-the-hair-out move to try to loosen up the girls. You know the one – flip my hair over my head several times to erase the hair-clip footprint. Somehow? As I did this? I knocked the clip in the toilet. (Hell, it’s a small bathroom, its a good thing I didnt know my head ON the toilet).
First? I am the only girl in the office, so that is kinda like my own personal bathroom. Second? It had been flushed moments before, so there was no pee in the potty. Third? It’s just a plastic clip – not a cloth scrunchy or anything. So – what should I do? It is drying off on a paper towel right now. Should I put it back in my hair later and risk possible contamination of my hair with bodily waste? (Although it would be MY waste and I’m a sweet girl who only poops flowery rainbow poops.) Or should I leave it out and risk having my scalp removed by NikkiZ when I go feed her next?
Sidenote: I would like to go on record to say that now that I’m thinking about it? I have dropped a lot of shit (no pun intended – ha!) in the toilet lately. Pens, keys, toothbrushes (I threw that away, don’t worry), and the other day I dropped my calendar that had been in my pocket in the toilet. What is up with that? I’m a damn klutz. That’s what’s up with that.
