I could just dye…

Yesterday Mimi, the fashionista, decided that my hair looked really cute, but that it just needed  a few adjustments.   She grabbed a brush and started “fixing” me.  After a few agonizing moments she proclaimed me Beautiful. 

Then she paused and cocked her head staring at the top of my head intently.   “You know”, she said “all those gray hairs up there are silver, not gray.  They’re actually really pretty”.  Then she happily skipped away.



Totally off topic: All you “Microsofties” that spy on me (don’t think I don’t know about you!) need to click over to see Mrs. G’s post today.  It’s all about you…well…kinda.  The comments are fun too!  (I don’t mean to exclude anyone, everyone else would enjoy it as well!)

    Right. It’s silver and not gray. Same goes for me. I’m not going gray at all.

    She’s right you know. 🙂

    If mine sparkle in sunlight does that mean mine are silver too?

  4. I miss my little girl beauty sessions.

  5. Hilary says:

    How many have you plucked out since then? 😉

    I like her thinking!

    Gray/Silver, who cares! Pictures is what we need.

    My kids asked me how did I get mine. *LOL*

  9. I know that I am seriously weird, but I keep waiting to get more grey hair. Maybe if we’d had children, I would have more by now.

    Aggghh, I am so not in the “celebrate the silver” club. I freely admit to covering it, dying it and keeping it as disguised as possible!

    It’s all good though. Gives me an excuse to try different hair colors with stupid names now and then… “Let’s see, what covers better, Burnished Brunette or Ravishing Raven?” yeah….

    yeah, just where is that photo of the top of your head?? Hmm? Let’s see those glorious mis-colored hairs of yours.

    I dont have a lot of gray but the bit I do have I keep dyed. Now Im going to click on over to Mrs G’s blog and see what you’re talking about.
    Isnt it amazing the amount of people that click through and never leave comments?

    AWWW. That is so sweet. She is very glass half full! What a cutie.

  15. in some cultures, grey (or silver) hair on a woman’s head is a symbol of dignity and wisdom. The more she achieves, the wiser she has become and the more she is treated with respect and pride by the rest of the tribe. I wear mine with honor, in recognition of those wise, centuries- old cultures’ traditions and beliefs 🙂

  16. Fantastic. Take the compliment.

  17. my husband refers to them as my “platinum” highlights

  18. Dorky Dad says:

    That’s why I totally don’t let anybody near my hair except some young, underpaid woman in a mall salon with five visible tattoos and earrings in the double-digits. And no, I don’t know what that means.

  19. Brenda says:

    Silver, sounds much better. I will have to remember that when I lose my hair in the coming weeks from chemo. My biggest fear isn’t in losing the hair it’s in growing it back. I know it will all come back in gray and I will have to wait months to color it! I’ve been a blond for years and now the truth will be out!

  20. what a dear she is!! hey, i like my silvery ‘highlights’ too!

  21. Patti says:

    The boys watch me get ready in the AM sometimes and when I put lotion on my face, they have started asking “Is that for your wrinkles, Mommy?” Those darn TV commercials! Couldn’t possibly be wrinkles…

    Sometimes children say the greatest things – my niece once told me that my ‘witch’ eyes were the funniest things she had ever seen!
