Okay, so. most of you know that The Boy has a head full of GLORIOUS curls. His hurr, to be quite honest, is not just huge, it’s HURGE. And HE LOVES IT.
Here’s the thing…
I get no end of shit about my kids hair. As if his sporting his glorious mane somehow makes him a juvenile delinquent and me a shitty parent.
My question: WHO THE FUCK CARES AND WHY DO PEOPLE THINK THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO COMMENT!?!?!
FAQ: Is The Boy unaware of what you do for a living??
A: The Boy is WELL AWARE of what I do for a living thankyewverymuch. What I do for a living keeps a roof over his head, clothes on his back, and food in his belly. Not to mention gas in his car and Vans on his feet.
(Aside: Making a snide comment about ANYTHING and couching it as a “joke” doesn’t make it any less offensive. It’s still a shitty comment and you’re still an asshole)
Here’s the thing…
His Dad and I have made a conscious decision to let our kid dress and groom himself as he sees fit. THIS INCLUDES HIS GLORIOUS MANE.
The Boy is an Honor Student who is respectful roughly 85% of the time, responsible, thoughtful, courteous, and as far as I know, an all around decent human being.
Which is so much more than his being an asshole with short hair. In my humble, honest opinion.
So the next time you look at my kid (or anyone’s kid for that matter) and decide to judge them based on something as trivial as their HAIR (or shoes, or clothes, or whatever) take a minute and really LOOK at that kid. Do they appear clean?? Well loved?? Are they polite?? Are they respectful??
if you can answer “Yes” to any or all of these questions, then how about you compliment their parents on raising a decent human being and keep the rest of your bullshit to yourself.
Just a thought.
