Well today we took Monkey to the pumpkin patch. As you know Monkey is only six years old. While standing in line waiting for the hayride I saw a gray hair on Monkey's head. Thinking it was one of mine or Daddy's I went to pluck it from the top of his head. Lo and behold that hair was attached to the boy's scalp. I yanked it out and showed him. Then I thought man I should have taken a picture as no one will believe me. About an hour later Monkey is sitting next to me on a bench and I glance down and see another gray hair. I really did try to get a photo but every shot was blurry as it was too close a shot. I asked if he wanted me to pluck or leave it. Monkey stated leave it. When Daddy came back to us I told him that Monk had another gray hair and wanted me to leave it. Daddy's response 'That's my boy!'.
I asked Monkey if he has a lot of stress in his life to cause the gray hair. He replied yes, it is very stressful to try and be good. I couldn't help but laugh.
So next time you are looking in the mirror and see a gray hair just think about my poor little boy who had two gray hairs at 6 years and 4.5 months old.
Monkey modeling his funny teeth. One of a set of three he got at the dollar store. He wanted vampire teeth but they didn't have any. He modeled these after eating a cupcake so that is what you see on his face.
