My Son Cares...

...I think.

Every day when I'm doing my hair I take some styling wax and twist my bangs into little sections. It looks rather silly, but after I tease it with a comb - well, I think it looks fine.
So, last week Joshua had to ask me a question and came into my bathroom when I was doing that twisting thing. He looked at me and said, "Uh, Mom? Why are you doing that?"
I explained that I wouldn't be leaving my hair that way, and he seemed satisfied. He asked his question, and left.
And I thought, Isn't that sweet? Joshua cares about how my hair looks. He doesn't want me to embarrass myself by looking like a dork.

Yeah. That, or he doesn't want me to embarrass him by going out in public looking like a dork.

*wink*

Hmmm, I'm thinking it is the latter....he doesn't want you embarrassing him in public. He is just at that age, you know!!

I'm impressed that he even noticed enough to say anything! Most guys are just oblivious to hair styles. :o)

You're raising him right!

I don't remember ever being embarrassed about how my mother looked. My dad on the other hand... Yeah.
