One Hot Mama!

haircut.jpg It’s that time again for my monthly assault on gray hairs. First of all, can someone please enlighten me as to the difference between gray and grey?

Anywho, if I have mentioned it before, I have lots of gray hairs. Not the occasional, “oh crap, a gray hair, I must pull it.” More like. “please don’t ever let the salon run out of color or I will age into a grandma overnight.” It’s genetic from my mom’s side along with baldness and small boobs. Thanks mom!

So I must drop insane amounts of cash every month to cover up this travesty. I tried coloring my own hair for a long time, but it was beginning to look scary and a bit like…I colored my own hair.

I decided that I would also change up my look a bit and get some hair cut off. Here was my inspiration.


For those of you who don’t know me in real life, it is really shocking how much I look like this. For those of you who do, just shut your mouth.

So, I achieved my goal and love my new look. The hubby loves it and said, “If I had known how good that was going to look, I would have told you to do it a long time ago,” which I am 90% sure is a compliment.

Lily, who is a very opinionated budding fashionista said, “I’m not sure I like it very much, I liked it when your hair flipped out better.” I said, “Does mommy not look beautiful anymore?” She replied, “Kind of beautiful…but then again, kind of not.” She is nothing if not honest.


  1. Hee hee, I am planning on blogging about gray hair too…. I’m sure you look exactly like Jenny McCarthy, former Playboy model. ;) She’s always had good hair, you have to give her that. And she’s a mom.

  2. I can’t wait to see the new doo later this week! I love how brutally honest children are. You know how I normally don’t wear make-up, well Clare said to me one time recently that I looked kinda funny in make-up when I was getting ready for a date night out. I think they are just used to us looking the same, and when we step out of our Mommy boxes it’s a shock to them. At least our hubby’s like us outside the Mommy box….that’s all that counts! :)

  3. Laughing at your Lily’s comments… I just cut my hair shorter than my daughter’s ever seen it in her four years, and she had a similar reaction – “Mommy, I DON’T like it!”

  4. I cracked up as I read this. I so have to deal with gray hair too. Next time I see Jennie Mc… I will think of Ms. Diaper Diaries. :)

  5. So, does this mean that you’re also a blonde?

  6. I can’t wait to see it! I am trying to grow mine out but I always end up going shorter anyway. I can never decide on hair!

    Ok since I am not sure when I will see you next why don’t you post a picture.

  8. What a coincidence I ALSO look exactly like Jenny McCarthy. Weird. Oh wait, no I don’t. We just have the same name. Crap.
