It's so hilarious to me how people react to something out of the norm. My daughter and I went shopping the other day for her birthday. Spent the day at the mall, had lunch at Max & Ermas. It was a lovely day all in all. But, I always crack up at the reaction Kati gets to her hair color. She has bright pink bangs. I think it's darling and I love that she's not afraid to express her own individuality. But, she does get some wild looks.
Sometimes she even gets nasty comments from the other kids at school. Does that make her want to change her hair back to its normal color? Nope. She likes the pink and that's that. Don't you love it? A kid who doesn't give in to peer pressure. It's what every mom dreams of, right? However, I've gotten some serious shit from other mothers who just don't understand why I let her do that to her hair. Even family members. Hello! Get a clue! She's 15 and just feeling her way around in this crazy world. I see no problem with that. In fact, I think its great that she doesn't let others narrowmindedness alter her personality. The girl loves pink. Hell, she loves color! I think that's wonderful.
I feel the same about my youngest daughter. She hates pink. She'd rather wear her favorite team jersey any day of the week. It's a pleasure to have two kids with such unique taste. I wouldn't want to change them, not for anything. Why do people have such a problem with differences? Can't we be more tolerant? Haven't we learned anything over the years? The world is changing. All I have to say to those who judge others is this: you'd better catch up!
Last but not least, Alisha duct taped to a chair. And yes, she asked to be duct taped. Don't worry she duct taped Kati next. I have to tell you, I sent this picture to their grandparents and my dad had a cow. "duct taped is expensive!' LOL He doesn't understand that in the grand scheme of things, duct tape is actually fairly cheap. He should check out some of those Wii games! Now that's an expensive way to entertain yourself!
