It was a good hair day...or so I thought.

I took my son to the barber on Friday. As we were pulling back into our drive way, I hoped out of the car to get the mail. As I was walking toward the mailbox I could see my shadow on the ground and I could see my hair bouncing in the breeze and thought to myself, Wow! I'm having a really great hair day today! As I got back in the car I glanced at myself in the rear view mirror and smiled and kind of shook my hair.

Sarah said, "Your hair looks good!"

"Thanks, honey! I'm using a new shampoo," I chattered excitedly, pleased that someone else had noticed my glorious mane.

"I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to Peter," she said.

Silence.

"Oh," I mumbled.

My kids sure know how to keep me from becoming too pleased with myself!

Bean told me my new style makes me look like a scrub brush.

Kids are good for one's humility.

HA! Man I am going to have to train my son to constantly roll out the compliments for mommy!

The real ego boost is when they look at photos of you -- photos which are maybe only five or so years old -- and inform you that your hair looks "funny."

Only 37 and my kids already think the hair is dated.

I'm always so surprised when the kids notice what I'm wearing or how my hair looks. Susie (2) said, "You have a nice shirt on today, Mommy" and I just melted.

Mama Zen said...

No egos allowed anymore!

Mine tells me all the time that I'm an old lady.
