On New Years Day I had the job of picking up my mohawk daughter, my wife wouldn't. Thankfully she had the cocky's comb in comb-over mode.
Things have calmed a little (the tension palpable!) however her mum has told her she won't be seen with her in public if she has the hair bit up. Can't say I blame her however I guess I'll be game. If I could sit in a doctors waiting room with my son who has piercings and lobe spacers and all that crap, then a cocky's comb should be within my capabilities.
I've decided that the colour in my girls hair (the cocky comb) is girly enough but the rest makes her look masculine if not gay. With almost a shaved head plus the cocky comb it reminds me of a circus character half man/half woman. I haven't seen the cocky comb up yet; can't wait, something to look forward to. I have not been asked by my daughter for an opinion, nor have I offered one. I don't intend offering one because it is irrelevant at this point.
The picture above is for a definite reason. My oldest son, who has the face pins and baubles, earings and spacers etc actually told my wife that his sisters hair looks pathetic. On a car journey with my wife (sister in back seat) he asked her why did we let her do it and said that he'd be a lot crankier than his mom. A pot calling the kettle black.
