hair clippings

so, the guy here feels the need to talk about his baby ALL the time was talking to another lady here about how his baby girl is going in for her first haircut tomorrow.

the lady then starts talking about how she has 7 or 8 clippings of hair from various children/ nieces/ nephews/ godchildren.

apparently, they keep them in some sort of frame. one side has a picture of the child and the other side holds some sort of locket that the hair goes in. so these things are made for the first haircut of a child.

and the guy says: oh my god, that is SO cute!

am i the only person that gets freaked out by this? is this what parents are supposed to do? i don't know. i guess i can understand keeping your own child's hair, but 7 or 8 clippings of OTHER kids' hair? that just seems weird to me.

i'm sure i'll be a momzilla when the time comes, but for now, i just don't get it...

I was going to say something about it but decided not to.

I don't like the idea of keeping the hair either.

I think it's creepy too. I understand keeping hair clippings of your own children. People love that kind of stuff for baby books.

Maybe she's saving them for voo-doo dolls in case they ever piss her off. Mel, you have such a sick sense of humor, I love it.

In the movie Star Man, Jeff Bridges used a lock of hair of a woman's dead husband from a photo album to take physical form. It was the DNA in the hair that let him do it. So you've always got that going for you.
