For those who are new to the blog... Chai Tea is my oldest daughter and we've been in a one step forward, two steps back pattern since she left home in January. Things are currently going well and, once again, moving forward.
Today Chai Tea and I went out to lunch. During the course of our fabulous meal at the Black Bear Diner, I couldn't help but notice her roots shining in her natural color. Earlier this year her hair was medium brown with strips of blue, black, fuscia, and blond. Her employer told her that her hair had to be one color so she dyed it jet black. I offered to dye her hair for her back to her natural color and she agreed.
We came back home after stopping at Walgreens and got busy... after she played with the dogs, of course. I was quite excited by the thought of having my girl looking like... well, my girl. Of all my children, she is the one I can most easily see the baby she was in her face.
Everything seemed to be going very well until I started rinsing. I had chosen a lighter shade than her normal color because I thought I should to counteract the black. Well... it dyed her healthy hair almost blonde and ... the black was still black. And she has to work tomorrow. So I took her to the beauty shop. Thankfully, they were able to fix it by re-dyeing it and cutting a good portion of her hair. I won't tell you how much it cost. I want to forget. It did turn out quite cute. She, of course, took pictures of all her hair on the floor and sent the picture to Fly Boy... causing him distress.
I then took her with me to pick up Double Shot. He had detention. Yes, I am a terrific mother as evidenced by the behavior of all of my children. I've given up any pretense of us being a good Christian family. We are just people that believe in Jesus. Anyway, Frappy calls and is upset because she doesn't get to go out and do mother/daughter stuff with me. I told her we would over Thanksgiving break while we clean. She says she's tired of the Frapparella routine. Hopefully, there's a glass slipper and prince in her future. Don't worry it was all in jest. Frappy gets plenty of attention, believe me. She sees to it!
By the way, Frappy's got a new boyfriend. We'll be meeting him over the Thanksgiving break. I'm already hard at work trying to come up with a clever name for him for the blog. Sadly, I cannot say she met him at a bible study... although, that is what she tried to make me believe. Unfortunately for her, I am the most excellent and talented lie detector. That's all I'm going to say about that.
