Hair tie

When I said in my last post that no one in my house wears fruit in their hair, I spoke too soon. Boy in Black and With-a-Why, it is true, prefer to tie their long hair back with bandanas. But Shaggy Hair Boy, who has the longest, curliest, most glorious hair in the family, sometimes requires a bunch of bananas to hold it back.

I believe that's what's normally called a "banana clip." :-)

I knew it.

Now I'll be waiting to see the rules for the new banana-haired variation on ultimate frisbee...

And he really does have awesome hair!

Is this going to catch on? Because my shaggy-haired teenage boy will not eat bananas, but if it is popular to wear them...

Ha ha! So was this another jab at you for the typo?

In another 6-9 months, LG is going to look like a mini-member of your family. If I didn't know better, I'd swear they were the ones egging him on with the long hair.

Glorious hair is right! He looks like he came out of a Caravaggio painting with beautiful hair - it looks more tempting than the fruit!
