Tattle Tail Tuesday #3

When my Mum was little she had "normal" wavy hair, as seen above. Then when she turned 12, just when it is so important to have "normal" hair, her hair did this.....

Oh, Mum this hair is so funny. I just had to tattle, ha, ha, ha....... No, this is not a perm, this is her natural hair. See how she parted it in the middle? This was her attempt to "feather" her hair, nice try Mum. Ha, ha, ha.....I can't stop laffin.
Then Grandma said "Maybe if you grow your hair out a bit, the weight of the hair will straighten it out a bit". This is what happened....
Yup, it just got bigger and bigger and bigger. Somewhere there is a picture wher it is even a couple of inches higher than this, but I couldn't find it among all Mum's pictures. Oh, this red afro just cracks me up ha, ha, ha......Poor Mum.
Now her hair is back to wavy. Go figure. What the heck was going on?
Sorry Mum, but I just had to tattle on your bad hair life, it is just too funny!

Oh Kellie, I bet your mom won't be happy that you tattled about her hair! Although my mom says she knows people who would love to have really curly hair.

Momym says the pics of her with feathered hair are just as bad so to your Mommy should not feel bad at all!

Tybalt said...

Oh, your poor mum! She shouldn't feel bad. I don't think many of us have ever had great hair.

Oh Kellie, one of my MANY very favorite things about TT is how many ideas I get from othercats about new material! If I could get to the boxes underneath the mounds of empty boxes in the Box Room Of Shame, I could dig out some old photos of ML that would make you scream!
Infinite possibilities!

I think the funny thing is, my bean would love to have really curly hair like that. But I think it's a case of the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

Daisy said...

That is some really curly hair! I am glad it went back to wavy, because it looks so pretty in the wavy photo. My Mommie has very straight hair and would love to have some waves.

MAAAAA hahaha that is HILARIOUS!!! Oh My, the world before hair straighteners - honestly, whoeever invented GHD straighteners deserves the nobel prize!

Your human is still very pretty even with her crazy hair.

Wavy is good. I do love your grandma's theory that if your mom grew her hair out it would flatten itself out. I would have just advised wearing a hat.

Oh, Kellie. I don't think your mom's going to be too happy about this post. Momma's brother has the same kind of hair. He had a 'fro in high school.
Momma has curly hair, too, but hers is really fine and sticks flat to her head, before it poofs out to the sides at the bottom. hee hee
naturallycurly DOT com has lots of helpful tips on their site, for all kinds of curly hair. Momma wishes she would have known about it 20 years ago. :/

Oh, and kefir is like liquid-y yogurt that's supposed to have more good bacteria in it than regular yogurt.

Love,

Oh your poor mom! My dad's hair just gets big like your mom's when it grows out. My mom hides most of her old pictures because she had really big mall hair.

Your mom has lovely red hair, and my, it is very curly! *smile* Mom has very straight hair, and she wears it that way now, though she used to try to curl it in the past.

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Oah No.... If I were your mommy, I will hide into the blanket~!! It's just embrassing, hehehehe~!!!!

But, I think your mommy looks just fine for me, because that is michico's mommy's hair style, hahahaha~!!!!!

Caesar and Princess said...

Yes, some people would love to have curly hair. Their hair is so straight and boring and it wont hold a curl.
I think most women are not happy with their hair

Happy Day Kellie

Sunny's Mommy said...

Even when she had tight curly hair, your Mum was very pretty :-)

Forty Paws said...

Yup. Our Maw was like Zippy, Sadie & Speedy's Mom and used to iron her wavy hair. Maw really feels for your Mom. That must have been very hard for her to go through at that age.

kellie, my mom wanted to say that as she's going through menopause (medically induced, not age appropriate--she said to tell you), her hair turned wavy after having been stick straight her whole life. maybe your mum will have something similar (although opposite).
