OK~ Just an observation on my part......My 15 year old son has an attitude! And you know when it really shines through? When his hair needs to be cut. And guess what? I have done the open mouth insert foot thing! I said I would never, never cut my boys' hair when they were little. Now that they are older and have no patience to wait at the hair cutting place, this Mom invested in a pair of clippers a few years ago and VOILA~ she can cut hair! I'm not sure what it is..but you know when we feel good about ourselves, we do present ourselves in a more positive way. Boy, I sure see it in my son.
It's amazing what a hair cut can do for the whole package deal. The attitude, the whole presentation, and just a feeling of happiness- it shines through in my son. Have you experienced this with your children or maybe yourself? For now the clippers sit in the cupboard and are waiting for the moment to arise, "Mom, cut my hair now!" If he knows what is best, he will make the call as to when he will have it cut. This Mom is ready for a new attitude! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
