Since the beginning of the school year, all three of my kids have been getting points docked off of their report cards for not having adequate personal grooming. (they get a grade for personal grooming! ha!)
So it came as no surprise when Selma told me this week that her teacher goes around in the mornings and checks to make sure that everyone has gel in their hair.
Selma never has her unruly tresses slicked back with hair gel.
but now - of course, she's been asking for some.
I don't care for gel myself - - and I don't really think my kids need hair products!
I wonder if I should just go out
and buy some hair gel
and teach my kids to use it.
because, after all, we live in Mexico!
Isn't that part of what our family does? Move into a new culture and work hard to embrace it and fit in?
this makes me laugh.
it also makes me cringe.
and then I cringe again because it makes me cringe.
Tell me! what would you do? gel or no gel?
