Moms can be cruel just take a look at these pictures. In fact, when my kids tell me I am being mean I pull these babies out and show them mean.
Seriously what possessed my mom to style a 5 year old's hair in an old lady bouffant? I am one cupcake away from looking like a 50 year old woman.
I desperately wanted long hair, but my hair is thick, curly and frizzy. I never saw a hairbrush I liked. Since I would not brush my hair, my mom's solution was to saddle me with this hairdo. I would go back to Pennsylvania to visit and she would tell me my hair was a mess ... really mom, like this hairstyle was better? She would say it was the style at the time and I would agree and say yes mom, "It was the style for a 50 year old woman". By the way, there was no need to spray my hair because it bouffed all on its own.
My mom served as my fashion consultant and stylist when I was a young girl. For the children photo shoot, I can only believe she was inspired by Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With The Wind and ripped down our drapery to sew up my dress. To think Maggie had a hissy fit when I made her wear yellow tights and a green corduroy skirt. She came home crying from 1st grade saying everyone called her Elf. Well did anyone ever mistake her for a 50 year mom wearing drapery when she was 5?
