A little change goes a long way for one Katy mom
A friend whom I have known since college said to me one day, â€œMy husband and I were remarking that you look the same as you did in college. Even your hair is the same!â€ At first I thought her remark was a compliment implying that I hadnâ€™t aged, but then, I wondered. How many people who havenâ€™t changed their hairstyle in fifteen years look all that good?
As I ran over the conversation in my head the next day, and thought about the probable implications of her words, I was determined to find a new look. Upon finding a Salon of some repute, I scheduled an appointment for that very day. When I arrived at the Salon, I told the hair-stylist I needed a completely new look. After an hour of sitting in the salon chair, I peered at my reflection in the mirror. The hair-stylist had added some layers and had completely straightened my hair. I liked it! I didnâ€™t know whether I had the time or energy to spend the same amount of time straightening my own hair, but, for today, I felt hot!
When my two youngest boys arrived home from school, they immediately looked quizzically at me. â€œYou look different mom!â€Â theyÂ quipped simultaneously.
In a completely flat tone of voice, Bryan responded, â€œYou look like you are going to McDonalds.â€ I determined right then and there that it was worth whatever time it took to straighten my hair! I definitely didn’t want to look like I was going to McDonalds every day!Â Oh, the honesty of children!
