    My daughter wrote this. I thought I would share her thoughts. :eek:hmy: She wants highlights in her hair. I'm at a lost because the count is two against one. :huh: I still think this was cute. She really wants those highlights in her hair. I have to say, she did ask, things coud be worse. When a child shares with you what they want it makes a difference. I believe in keeping and having open lines of communcation. Maybe she does too. :confused:


    Help the light shine on to my hair.

    Please give me some highlights so
    My hair can glare, by doing that you
    Will give me strength,
    Beauty, smartness and niceness.
    When I get my hair pressed my
    Highlights will glow and all the thanks
    Is to you, my folks.

    You know, I had to smile at this. She knows how to hit you where you live. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree huh? This was sweet, thanks for sharing this.

    she is bright...and her own person.and she writes too!
    you are blessed...
    you took me back to my daughter...i didn't let her dye it or
    straighten it...but I let her have braid extensions
    and that really made her smile and shake her head
    good luck with it all.
    and thanks for sharing..

    and how could you possibly say no...
    to such words...
    that get you right where it counts
    in the heart...
    children have a way of doing that...
    they seem to know instinctively
    how to turn a "No" into a "Yes"...

    thanks for sharing this Hodee...
    it was so cute..

    Thank you Watz.. she is so like me. But she knows how to work my wife and get things from her better than me now. :D

    $$RICH$$.. much appreciation for the read. You are a jewel in the crown of men. It didn't touch me $$RICH$$ I'm still fighting untilit happens. I'm trying to get into the beauty salon and do some supervising. But my wife is blocking.

    MzBlk..thanks for the read. Yes she is getting the highlights. I'm going to have to check my papers. I thought I was head of the household!

    Deepy.. yes she writes. This isn't her only poem. She is published in Europe. I'm not jealous of her.. but she upstaged dad, when he wasn't looking.

    Jazzy.. my wife, promises my children stuff, because she has trouble saying no, and standing her ground. She has no trouble saying NO to me, when it's something I want. :D I used to be number 1, in her book.. but now.. its hard getting on the roster. I'm going to pencil myself into her appointment book. I have been practising writing like her. I hope it works.. he he he

    Angel.. you are so special... They do have a way of working the parents. It used to be my daughter could work me and not my wife. My could work my wife with no effort. But my wife spends more at the malls on both of them. So my daughter got smart and dropped me like a rock. lol

    I may be playing the hard bad guy role in this. But Dad's act like that. I just don't want her growing up to fast. She told me I don't and didn't limit my son. Angel.. that isn't true. I did tell her I wanted to meet any boys she liked. I didn't say anything simular to my son. I have talked with my son. He better not show any disrespect for women.

    Is it a her father better watch out for his daughter thing?

    Muse.. thanks for the read. I haven't thought of that. She knew after she told my wife she wanted highlights her chances were 98% that it was going to happen. I found out because they were talking just loud enough for me to hear. I believe that was a set up, :nuts: to introduce it without having to sit down with me, because they knew. I would have said like Jazzy. Your too young!
