Highlight time

Delaney has been asking our hair dresser for red or purple color in her hair for about 1 1/2 years. She is serious about it. I guess she has seen me get color in my hair and she wants her favorite color in hers.

I had my hair colored on Wednesday and we decided to take the plunge.

Call me crazy! I have heard from others that if I give in to her at this age, what will happen when she is a teenager.

My thought is: This will not kill her or cause her harm. If she feels like she can ask me about things, all the better. Plus, she has been serious about this since she was 2 years old. What does it hurt? I say, pick your battles! Let your child express themselves.

The color is Boysenberry. It is very difficult to see in black hair unless the sun is hitting it just right. We put one streak on the right side of her head. I am not sure if the picture captures it or not. Can you see it?

I see it! I like it! and I agree about choosing your battles and hair doesn't matter that much. It grows out.
