I have jet black hair - so black in fact, I have had strangers ask me if it is my real hair color. I also come from a pretty hairy family. My kids call my Dad Grandpa Fuzzy for a reason.
Needless to say, I have been waxing and bleaching the hair on my face for a really, really long time.
I vividly remember being in fourth grade and being made fun of for my uni-brow. I shaved my legs for the first time in second grade.
So I should have been prepared for this.
Ashley and Audrey both have brown hair. Ashley has a darker complexion than Audrey, and as most kids, she has a uni-brow and hair on her upper lip. I just didn't think it was any way noticeable.
Ashley told me this weekend that there are some "older" boys on the bus that call her mustache girl. Seriously? She's six! Am I supposed to start bleaching her hair now? I know that the stuff I use burns sometimes, so I am pretty sure that wouldn't fly with her. Help!
Oh, and luckily, Ashley doesn't really get why they call her that.
