My daughter and I were having a chat.
We talked about a heap of things.
Everything from what was for dinner that evening to plans and hopes for the future .
Then the conversation turned to hairstyles.
She told me, “Mum, I really want to do something different with it. It’s just so… boring!“”
“It’s not boring at all. It’s beautiful!” I replied.
“I think it’s time for a change,” she said. “I need to express my individuality, you know!”
“Well, maybe a different band or hair decoration?” I suggested. “Or what about wearing it this way?”
She looked at me.
“Hmm, that’s not quite what I was thinking of.”
We went to bed and I thought nothing more of our conversation.
Imagine my shock the following morning when she came downstairs with her hair like this…
No, Anna, I do not care that all the cool six week olds are wearing their hair like this, you are not having a mohican and that’s final!
