Shades of Gray

My hair is turning gray.

I have actually spotted a few strands here and there for the past few years. Nothing serious - I plucked them out right away!

I knew there was a problem though when Sabina leaned over to look at my head during dinner one night and yelled out in a loud voice "Oh no - Mommy - You have gray hair!" (I forgot to mention that we were dining out, in public!)

Since then, I have spotted more of these silvery friends on my head. I have given up on trying to pluck them. I have been trying to ignore them and pretend like they don't exist. Now I am wondering what I should do. Should I:

A) Dye my hair
B) Get a perm - If it is extra curly, maybe you won't see it
C) Suck it up and accept it.

I have been seriously considering option A but I think I am going to probably end up doing option C.

Aging is going to take some getting used to. I am going to try and put up a fight though - let's see who wins...

Get real! Suck it up! The gray doesn't show and so what if it did? If it were gray it wouldn't be so bad. At least it is thick and beautiful. Some gray in great hair and a gorgeous face is a exotic.

Oh, I'm sure you look just fine! How did your workshop go?

Some of us think that gray is beautiful, a sign of wisdom and experience, worthy of respect. You are lucky to have beautiful dark thick hair--gray looks great with it!

A little gray means coming of age, not getting old!

I get Loving Care the two times a year before I see Mother in Law, but otherwise let it go. I will mention that one of my students thought I had a child in college (when my only child is 6). But we won't go there...
