Just when you thought you’d seen it all

Along comes this.
That’s right, wigs for baby girls. ‘Cos you know how confusing it can be when babies don’t have any hair.
As you can imagine, when my first-born was tiny I spent endless sleepless nights fretting over this problem. I can remember creeping into the nursery in the dead of night to take a peek as she lay there sleeping, and having to stifle the sobs that wracked my distraught frame when the shocking realisation hit that she looked just like a baby boy.
From thenceforth I dealt with the problem by always dressing my 3 baldy-headed girls in pink frilly babygrows, painting their nails, putting them in high-heeled shoes before they could even walk, and making sure they were only ever seen playing with dolls.
Oh yes, and just to be on the safe side, I named them all after Disney princesses.
Ariel, Jasmine and Belle have a lot to be thankful for.
