I have two questions. One, am I supposed to get Alexis' teacher something for Christmas? I do not know the etiquette on these things, and I would have no idea what to give her anyway. So, input please.
Two. Does it make me a mean mom or a good mom that I let Alexis go to school with her hair fixed like this?
I hope it is obvious to you that she fixed it herself. I've written before about her independence (and if I would put tags on my dumb blog it would be a whole lot easier to find these posts that I reference!), but since her hair has been short we haven't had too many encounters with funny looking hair. Unbrushed hair, sure, but not necessarily funny looking. She came out of the bathroom this morning asking how it looked, with just a little trepidation in her voice. She obviously wasn't sure if it was cute, but I just couldn't crush her. I told her it was interesting, she was satisfied with that, and I couldn't find a nice way to tell her that I should fix her hair. So off she went like that to school. And I would like honest opinions on if that is mean of me to send her so goofy looking. Remember, she is 5.
