Yup…she noticed!

Published January 6, 2016 by lynn k scott

This morning as the lil miss and I were leaving the office to head out to drop off at school, she looks up at me and says, “Mom?  Did you brush your hair today?”

It’s not role reversal; I assure you.  It’s my daughter’s way of indirectly saying, “Mom, your hair looks like crap today.  I am noticing you didn’t dry or straighten your hair today.  You let its natural body make uneven waves and stray strands do as they please.”

I affirmed I had indeed brushed my hair and told her some days I just don’t feel like “doing” my hair.  That’s allowed, right?  Hell, I am 44 years old now.  My hair, and I, can pretty much do what we damned well please.

I find it ironically humorous, this child will notice my hair, but I practically have to ground her to make her take a shower just to keep hers clean!  Oh to be a nine-year old child and able to judge the fashion-challenged parents of the world.  How I do miss that ability!
