Yesterday my niece Alaska got out the hair dye. Her subject? My niece Avalon. Avie has dark hair so Alaska gave her some deep red highlights. My nephew, their cousin, Mitchell, wanted in on the action. He has blonde blonde blonde hair and wanted it blue. His mom, my sister Whitney, okayed the color change…
First of all, look at the face. Isn’t it perfection? He is about the most gorgeous child I’ve ever seen. Whitney took this picture with her cell phone and texted it to me. I e-mailed her text from MY phone to my e-mail and then downloaded the picture. Then I uploaded it on Flickr as I had to share it all with you. (Don’t you just love technology and the internet???)
Mitchell is six. The hair color is semi-permanent!! He plays baseball and is on the Dodger’s. He has a game tomorrow where his new hair will be revealed. Whitney warned him that it’s possible that some won’t find this new “do” as delightful as we do, but he was willing to take the chance!
Whitney says this picture doesn’t really do the blue justice. Better pictures with a “real” camera have been promised.
I wish they would have done this when I was visiting! I would have loved to see this in real life and in technicolor!
I wonder if his school has any rules about this sort of thing. I know some schools do. If his does, I see a buzz cut in this boy’s future!
