The Strangest Question

I have been asked, on more than one occasion, whether I highlight Hollis's hair. Seriously, are there really people out there coloring three year old's hair? Don't answer that, I don't want to know. This boy won't sit still long enough to hear a 5 minute story, much less double process hair coloring. I will concede that Hollis does have good hair and a lot of it. It is shiny, reflective and golden. The kind of hair that women, myself included, spend hundreds to achieve. I can say this without bragging, because I do not take any kind of credit for it. It's his gift I suppose. I am not using any special color enhancing shampoos or conditioners, just Target brand baby shampoo and Sauve for kids conditioner (gasp! Not Johnson & Johnson? What kind of mother are you? Do you feed him nails for breakfast?). Seriously though, that is the strangest question anyone has ever asked me.

Hollis does have beautiful hair. Several people have asked me if I roll Elle's hair. Do they think I use a curling iron like I spent years doing to get only a fraction of Elle's curl. Surely they don't think she sits long enough to put sponge curlers in. Anyway, I getcha, girl. Well, your question is a little stranger since Hollis is a boy.

What a hoot! That is a beautiful picture.

When my sister and I were in the throes of our swimming careers (mine was much shorter than hers), people would stop us to ask how we got our share so shiny. Chlorine.
