I predict an MBA in her future.

Standard

Conversation between my husband and our six-year-old daughter:

“How can I have darker hair?”

“Well, some people dye it.”

“Can I dye my hair?”

“Maybe when you’re older.”

“Like seven or eight?”

“More like 18.”

“10?”

“Maybe 16.”

“How about 11?”

That’s when my husband said, “Good night,” and left the room.

I don’t know where she picked up these negotiating skills!

  1. Haha that’s awesome! My mom wouldn’t let me dye my hair growing up (she let me do the kool-aid thing once for Halloween), but as soon as I turned 18 I dyed my hair brown (I’m a blonde naturally) after that first dye job my hair has never been able to restore to it’s natural color so I have been stuck dying my hair ever since. If I had it to do over, I never would have done it.

    • A-ha! Good to know! I would tell that to my daughter, but I don’t really think it would sink in at this point. I’m surprised you dyed it brown. I thought all girls want to be blonde! I wouldn’t mind, personally.

      • Yeah it probably won’t sink in yet…that would be too easy. Blonde would be great, but I flush really bright red when I do the slightest physical activity. Back then I was super self conscious about that because I felt the clash between my bright blonde hair and my bright red face called too much attention to myself.

      • Ah, gotcha. My other two kids are red heads, which is fun, but it means they will be perpetually pale, and if they are ever embarrassed or over-exerted… then, yea. You can imagine. 🙂

      • Oh yes I can imagine, but I’m sure red on red works out. Plus I’m betting they have some pretty cute freckles amd I right?

      • Some freckles. Not a lot. They’re not over-powering like many redheads, for which I’m thankful, really. I think they’re more pretty than cute this way. Ah, whatever! 🙂
