Blondes really DO have more fun ... or is it just that they're funny?


Evil Mother/Wife: Oops, I just realized I used your toothbrush instead of mine.

Wonderhubby: Is this a problem in some way?

EM/W: Ooooooh, you might get cooties.

WH: Ooooooh, I always wanted cooties.

Voice from another room sounding suspiciously like a Roo-girl: Cooties is a form of head lice. I hate to break it to you, but you cannot get cooties from a toothbrush.

EM/W: Oh. Thank you, my darling daughter, for the lesson in entomology.

TRG: Hey, there's more going on under the hair than you think!

EM/W: Hey, you know you color that hair. It's actually darker than you let on!

TRG: *high-pitched giggling*

And before anyone gets all bent out of shape over my 13-year-old coloring her hair, let me just say that I allow highlights every once in awhile. It makes her happy, which makes me happy -- or at least less irritable!

By popular demand, I offer you the photo of J-bear's death glare.

She took a kick to the gut from her much stronger (and male) sparring opponent.

And she. totally. lost. her. SHIT!

Exhibit One (and only):

Never tick off J-bear. Got it.

(I have been coloring my hair since I was that age. It's fun and harmless!)

You got a love a girl with a death stare. ;)

Tink said...

Not seriously. You gotta. Otherwise she might use it against you.

anglophilefootballfanatic said...

Ooh. The death stare! And, I started doing my hair about that age, too.

Janet said...

If the 4-year-old decides she wants to color her hair, you better believe I will let her. (It will obviously be the wash out kind, but there are too many other battles to fight.)

If she wanted to dye her hair blue it'd be no one's business but yours!


So no disclaimer needed! :)

Pamela said...

yeah... you need to choose the battles that are important. By the way.. I wouldn't choose to battle with the death glare. ha ha ha ha

There's got to be SOMEONE I can report you to for this child abuse you are perpetrating....

Tell Roo to come live with her Auntie M....

I don't think that's so unusual to let a kid get their hair colored nowadays. My only objection would probably be if it cost too much, but I'd let any kid pay for it themselves regardless of age. I'm a nice mommy, but I'm cheap:o)

Way to kick butt (or gut, or whatever she's kicking), J-Bear!

I let my daughters color their hair at 13. Pick your battles and all that. And that picture is fantastic!!!!

Simply Jenn said...

Holy moley! I would definitely lay odds on your oldest daughter. I'm afraid of my oldest realizing she can use all those cheer muscles for evil.

DIXIECHICK said...

The look on JBears face...priceless. She is ticked!

Robinella said...

Love the death stare. My hubs is a black belt in Aikido and I have always wanted to do some kind of martial arts. I'm afraid though and that picture proves my point. :-)

Mandy said...

Haha funny story about the cooties!

And what a pic, god help the person who ever tries to do her harm!!

I wish my mom cool enough to let me dye my hair when i was 13. I had to do it behind her back and then get grounded. Haha.

Huckdoll said...

Note to self: Stay of JBear's good side. Yikes!!

I don't think there's anything wrong with highlights! I'm sure when my daughters start seeing me spend almost $200 dollars at the salon every four months, they will want a piece of the action! Poor Baby Daddy!

Mama DB said...

Serously, J-Bear is opening up a can of whoop-ass! Love that picture.

I've colored my hair since 14. Okay, it was Sun-In but still. ;)
