That Mom

You know “That Mom,” the one that’s kids are a little wild or wonky?  Or the one that lets her 8 year old girl put some pink in her hair? Yes, that is me.  I’m That Mom.  I don’t know what came over me.  Maybe it is all the testosterone flowing through my house but on a whim, I let Ella get a few pops of pink in her hair.  What do you think?  It’s just for the summer.  But we thought it was kind of fun.

This week I thought I’d share two of my favorite mom sites . . .

Mom Filter | pretty much the coolest – you’ll have to see for yourself.  But I can tell you, they even have a That Mom feature – LOVE!

The Glow | a look into the life of fashionable and inspiring mom’s – gorgeous

Happy weekend.  Do you have any exciting plans?

    Hi, I think the pink in Ella’s hair is fun, happy and so summer! I am a grandmother with two granddaughters – I sure wouldn’t sweat the small stuff!

    Love it! my daughter is 9 and wears a uniform to school so she looks for little ways to stand out when she can. when school let out she asked for a green streak in her hair… why not? the other kids (and most parents) think its cool too.

    Why not? You’re only young once. I think it is adorably girly and sassy and sweet. You are a rocking mom!! Now, when the boys want a mohawk…….. oh my gosh, little boys with mohawks are so cute. You better say Yes.
