We were on our way to church this morning, running miserably behind schedule so I was "primping" in the car. Brushing my hair, which automatically calls for me to gather all the loose hair that is dangling from the bottom edge (you know what I'm saying ladies). Our six year old, very innocently, engages in conversation with me (with an interjection from daddy)...
Child: "Mommy, why do you always pull hair out of your head?"
Mom: "Just the loose hairs, so they don't get on or go down my shirt and tickle my back."
Dad: "I told mom she should just shave her head, BALD and wear a hat."
Mom: "No, Sydney knows I can't do that. Why not Sydney?"
Child: (long pause with sincere thought)"..........................UM, because you don't have a hat?"
Mom: "No Syd, I mean, what does the Bible say a woman's hair is for?"
Child: "Oh, yeah, her covering."
At this point the entire car was filled with laughter and suggestions for this conversation to be my next blog entry. So, wha-lah!
