I acquired a collection of headbands back when Monkey was a baby. I also made lots of bows to clip on her headbands. I went a little overboard and made 2 of every color/pattern.
I could have attached the bows to the headbands, but I preferred to mix-n-match, as well as have the option of wearing them as barrettes
Recently, Monkey’s littler sister, PipSqueak got a BAHA hearing aid, which is worn on a soft headband. Her headband likes to slide down her forehead, or pop off the back of her head. We are constantly fixing it, which makes her hair look crazy. Apparently headbands sliding off is a common problem.
One non-slip solution is to clip a barrette to the headband, and her hair. Not only does that hold the headband in place, it also flattens her baby-fine hair which would otherwise be sticking straight up.
I already had a lot of Button Bows and Mini Bows, but one can never have too many bows. Right? So I quickly used up all the extra ribbons and buttons in my entire house, making even more Button Bows to clip on PipSqueak’s headband, in attempt to make the headband look cute match every outfit.
BAHA kids wear headbands all day, every day, so we moms want their headbands to be practical, and comfortable, and match multiple outfits. But I also want to add lots of variety to our lives!
