Back to School Highlights

7 year old kiddo has been driving my nutz for highlights, and I have consistently said no. Today, though, she cornered me in the dye Isle and pleaded for them. She was so excited about the idea of dying her hair I couldn't stand it for another minute and finally agreed. I'm sure the Isles of Zellers had never before heard such glee squeeled from within but there it was. I had said yes and it was too late to take it back. They didn't have the right color there so off to "The Mart of Wal" we went to buy indoor and outdoor shoes guessed it - Highlights! I decided to do them myself instead of paying a fortune to have them done somewhere else, and picked up a box of "Light golden blonde" for the total summ of $5.49. I also picked up a highlight kit (the skull cap, brush and crochet hook to yank hair out form under the cap) and home we went. She sat patient and still while I foiled her hair ever so slightly. (Her big sister was the proud beneficiary of the rest of the bottle).

I only left it in for 10 minutes instead of the required 20-30 minutes (She's 7 remember?) And when I rinsed it out, she was bursting to see her hair. I played the sneeky card, though, and made her shower so that I could blow dry her hair and "reveal" the new glistening colors that would adorn her head and I have never seen that child bath so quickly before!! I must say - I don't regret a nickle and she couldn't be happier...or cuter - if I do say so myself! :)
