I’ve mentioned on here how May’s lack of hair is a long-running discussion in our family. We seem to talk about it so much because when we go anywhere, people always say, “aww, he’s so cute” or “what a cute little fella.” Never mind that she’s always wearing something sort of girly. No hair=boy, obviously.
Lots of people tell me that they were bald as toddlers, but I never seem to see any big toddler baldies, except for my own. I love the few sprouts she has, but I’m not going to lie, I’d like to put a cute barrette or bow in her hair. However, girlfriend likes her head just the way it is as evidenced by the fact she will allow nothing ornamental on her noggin. Ever. She won’t even let me brush her three hairs after a bath.
So, to celebrate her general bald fabulousness, I’ve compiled a list of other famous baldies and her likeness to each.
1. Big Baby
Similarities: dead-lifting objects, proclivity to throw stuffed animals, enjoyment in lack of clothing.
::side note:: When the Maindonalds were visiting us last week, they pointed out that May sort of looks like Big Baby from Toy Story 3. Needless to say, the name has stuck.
2. The Blue Man Group
Similarities: banging things, splashing water on flat surfaces.
3. Walter White
Similarities: charming, manipulative, particular, loves to read, enjoys being the smartest person in the room, prone to anger when other drug lords try to copy her formula for Blue Sky.
4. Britney Spears
Similarities: beating objects against other objects, wearing clothes that give you a muffin top.
The ironic thing about all of this is that when I was in college, my best friend Marcee and I had a long going obsession over the fact that when I had a baby, I wanted he or she to be bald, and when she had a baby, she wanted hers to have lots of curly black hair. Who knew I would get what I wanted…in spades! Love that little baldie.
