Pros and cons of redheadedness

PRO: It's sorta unusual, so sometimes people compliment it.

CON: Some of those people are also insensitive and say IN FRONT OF MY KIDS, "Ooooh, it's too bad neither of them got your pretty hair." Rude!

PRO: I spend exactly zero dollars keeping up the color.

CON: I couldn't hide in my college classes, no matter how large they were. Half way through the semester in Physics, my professor came up to me and asked why I hadn't been coming to class. Me = awkward silence, thinking: Um. What? How the heck did you know I was missing, in this auditorium of 200 kids??

PRO: It will be REALLY easy for you to spot me at Blog Sugar!! And this time, being easy to spot is under the "PRO" list because I want to meet you and give you a hug and see your cute face in three dimensions, not just on a screen. OK? So find me. It won't be difficult, even amongst 200 people. Professor Whats-His-Name (I really can't remember his name) proved that to be true.

{check out this link today to see the other friends who will be there too.}

  5. Your hair is beautiful! My baby has red hair, which is a surprise, b/c the only people in our family w/ red hair are/were a cousin on my husband's side and my great-great-grandma. We're hoping the baby will keep her red hair; she's only 10 months old, but her hair has been red since birth, & she has red eyebrows!

  6. I love this post, your creativity, and that we get to *meet* at blog sugar! ps-it kind of makes me want to dye my hair red. Then people might actually talk to me! hehe! :-) can't wait!

  9. We've got bunches of Irish redheadedness in our family - love it!

  10. LOL! I love this post! I was born a red-head, but it turned blonde after a few years. Does that count??? :0) My daughter is 5 and her red hair is still going strong. She gets countless compliments on it. Redheads are indeed very special.

    PS: I cannot believe people have said those things to your kids... jeeeeeez.
