what, you don’t like my hair???
Well, poo. Pooh on you!
Just kidding, most people like my hair, and if I really cared about the rest of the world’s opinion on the matter I’m sure I wouldn’t have shaved it! I love it. That’s all that matters. Here are my favorite not-exactly-positive reactions:
Mom: “what did you do to you hair???”
Me: “I shaved it”
Me: “It’ll be ok.”
Mom: “Yes. It’s just hair. It will grow back.”
Have a feeling she keeps repeating that last line to herself…
Best friend from Nepal: “Oh my god! Why you do these crazy things???”
Mariah’s nun teacher at pick-up: “Oh! I see mommy cut her hair.” (imagine the slightly disapproving tone of a nun…)
Attending physician facebook friend: “Um… ok.”
Well, it sure is entertaining. Most people at work didn’t even notice it because I parted it more towards the middle and the shaved part was mostly covered.
I really like the shape of my shaved head. Who knows… maybe I’ll shave the other side, too. Maybe I’ll shave it all off!
My very favorite reaction has been M’s… which is to say she had no reaction whatsoever. I tried to get her to feel the shaved part and she couldn’t have been less impressed. She was like, “Stop it mommy. Come on. Let’s play.” Guess she’s still too young yet to be embarrassed by her quirky mom!
