Today I got banged. In the best possible way of course. Girls you know I'm talking about fringe, bangs, straight across the front - in a big way - not a big 80's way for the record. I like them but family reviews were mixed.
C - "Mommy! You look so pretty, beautiful haircut." - does this child know who peanut-butters his bread or what?
My 3- year-old nephew - "haircut?" me - "yes, do you like it?" "Yes, nice." - Hey that's a big compliment from an age 3.
E - after about 1/2 hour of staring, "Mom it looks like you put on someone else's hair-do, can you give it back now?" At least he's honest about his resistance to change.
L - "Yeah, yeah, I saw it, it looks really cute, I'm just frustrated right now and I've got a lot to do."
This requires a 5 min back-up...
me calling him, "uh hon, so I left the headlights on, on the car last night, all night and the battery is dead, really dead. "
L "----silence accompanied by a sigh---"
me - "So do you think you could take a look, I mean between work, work, running to the city for paint, work, work and running the boys to swimming lessons?"
So he comes home and after several attempts and much wasted time, is successful at charging the battery. He is about to hop back into his car and I ask, "didn't you see my haircut?" back to paragraph beginning and his comment.
