My hair

My brother was here for the holidays.

I turned to my boys, ages 10 and 11, and said, “See Uncle's hair? That's what color your mommy's hair really is, with more gray.” I don't know if they were amazed or astonished.

I've been dying my hair for fourteen years now. It's been red, mostly, all their lives.

I've thought about letting it go back to it's natural color, but my beautician says, “Don't. The whole top of your head is gray now.” Gray is a beautiful color, but I'm only 40.

I have more gray hair than my mother!!!

I got the color, the gray, and the lack of curls from my dad.
