The Hair Police Not Only Stopped Me, They Were Riding in My Car!

The conversation on the car ride home from Miles’ dentist appointment yesterday was informative to say the least. As we stopped at a shopping center to run into the grocery store Miles happily told me…

“Mama you should go in there!”

The sign read Beauty Mart.

“Really, why?”

Duh. Just slap me now. I don’t know why I asked.

“Because you NEED to get your hair done.”

Thank goodness I wasn’t feeling particularly vulnerable yesterday or my outburst of laughter could have easily been crying. WTF? I thought I was cute rockin’ my baseball hat and ponytail. I even did my make up.

This is the same kid who is the first to tell me how pretty I look without prompting when I get all dolled up, so I’m inclined to think he’s telling the truth.


My ego has since recovered, but yes, I can be a tad shallow… by the end of the day my ‘do was done!

Winks & Smiles,

Haha! He just wanted you to look your best.

TerriRainer said... least he didn't see one of those Nutrisystem (where you buy their food to lose weight) commercials and say "Hey mom, you need that!"

Yeah, I got that from my youngest daughter a few months ago...feel lucky it was just the hair!

God, have I been there! My daughters are usually dissing what I have chosen to wear. I restrain myself because last time I checked plaid didn't match stripes, at a certain age you should wear a bra under a white t-shirt and it really isn't okay to wear the same thing 5 days in a row. They should be looking up to me.

Thanks, Ladies. Not that I want anyone to feel my pain or anything, but... well... you know. Smiles!
