Let's Give 'Em Somethin' to Fight About

Being the awesome parents that we are, we've educated our children on the beauty of the classic and timeless hairstyle -- the mullet. We've even gone so far as letting our children know that one of them has one.

So the other morning at breakfast, Ruby offers up to Henry and me the line we've coached her on before, "I ... have ... a ... mullet!"

To which he replies, "No, I have a mullet."

And of course, Ruby will not be denied her claim, "NO! I HAVE A MULLET!"

This intense debate continued back and forth for about 4.2 minutes until one of them was in tears and I had long since stopped laughing.

In my previous life (pre-pregnancy), I would have provided you with a great picture of Ruby's said mullet but I haven't picked up my camera in over a week. It's sad really.

But speaking of my pregnancy, is anyone noticing the kind of creepy, twirling baby in the corner? WE'RE GETTING CLOSE PEOPLE!

Oh seriously! Didn't you know everyone wants "business in the front, party in the back"? Why would you think that wouldn't be desirable to both children? Speaking of the baby in the corner, looks like he's REALLY ready to come out. Come on little baby, and bring your little girlfriend too. Any day now you two!

Oh boy, that is good stuff. If there's one thing I know, it's not to go head-to-head with Ruby. She won't back down. And as for her mullet, she's trying to make a statement just like I did as a child. Mullet meet Bowl-cut. Don't hate.

Seriously! Look at Kate with her comment, favorite Aunt Kate, I want to barf all over it. Hey Kate let me remind you of a sledding experience had over Christmas at the cabin where Ruby would only agree to sled with her FAVORITE. Weird how those who try the hardest don't always get what they want.

Anyway...I hear mullets are the new black.

Hey Becca,

Sometimes your abusive. Mostly with your words, but sometimes with your body. You won't touch another hair on Ruby's head... or mine. Mark my words. I ain't playin' B-Loaf.

F.A. Kate
