A hoop-lah reality check today.
My brown-haired girl has asked for highlights for as long as I can remember. I've always said no, too expensive.
Today, on the way to get her hair cut, she said, "Can you tell me why I can't have highlights but you're always buying stuff for Riley's sports?"
Ouch. She is a kid who doesn't ask for much, so highlights wish granted. Best $25 I have spent in a long time. She is happy, happy.
