Friday Fun – Motherhood Musings
My daughter has the most beautiful hair in the world. I know I am biased, but it is a gorgeous reddish color filled with all kinds of highlights.
I tell her all the time that she better not dye it when she gets older. Who am I kidding? I have visions of coming home one day and finding that she has dyed it coal black.
Honestly, I worry what about what all my children are going to do to their bodies. I also wonder when I became such a prude.
When I was teenager, I remember another kid’s mom saying she didn’t care what her kids did with their hair and piercings, as long as they were good kids and did their schoolwork, etc. Her thought was that they should have their own form of self expression. I thought that was really cool at the time and wanted to be the same when I was parent.
But I think it is going to be hard for me.
I like seeing OTHER kids express themselves through crazy haircuts and colors; eyebrow piercings, nose piercings, I don’t bat an eye when they are on OTHER children; tattoos – I like a lot of them, but not on MY kids.
The thought of my kids marring their bodies gives me the heebie-jeebies.
Any predictions about what they will do (to me)?
