I decided to sign my daughter up for a free trial music class in my neighborhood. At four and a half months old, she's probably too young to get much out of it, but it's free, she can hear songs and interact with other kids, and maybe I would get to make some new mommy friends (that didn't happen - the class was all nannies, but that'll be a different day's post). Anyway, towards the end of the class, I laid my daughter down on the mat and was playing with her. Along crawls a little boy, probably around 9 months old, and he starts touching her. Cute, I thought, he's exploring another baby. Then all of a sudden - he grabbed my daughter's hair and YANKED. In his fist were SO many of her hairs! I was so upset, even though my baby wasn't upset at all. The boy's mommy was upset too, she quickly slapped her son's cheek HARD. I didn't realize people still do that. Now I don't know who I feel worse for...my daughter or that poor little boy who didn't realize he was doing anything wrong.
