Adam decided last weekend he wanted to be a redhead.
First I said 'NO! You can't colour your hair until you hit 'teenager status'.'
Of course, as any kid would, he came back with , 'But WHY can't I have red hair NOW?'
I thought about it for a second.
It's only hair. It didn't have to be permanent. Seriously, what's wrong with letting him try it?
When I was younger, I wanted to be a redhead too.
And I was, for awhile, during the high school years.
I'm sure many kids would like to try different colours. And it's just so acceptable, 'these days'.
So, when it became apparent he wasn't giving up, I decided to pick my battles, and bought a 'lasts for 8 washes' red for him.
Which made him happy :-)
This is his new look.
For another few washes anyway ;-)
