A friend recently asked me:

“Why do some parents send their children to school without brushing their hair?”

“Because they are lazy, friend”.

Pure and simple.

Plus, this parent loves her some good bedhead.

Don’t worry.

I haven’t always been this way.

I used to make sure my children had perfectly coiffed hair before they left for school.

But, that was before.

Before I realized that it takes a lot longer to do their hair than not.

Go ahead.  Judge me.

I STILL like me some good bedhead.

    haha this is exactly why I keep Wyatt’s hair super short no need to brush it:) this winter it grew out and I HATED having to brush it for school and on more than one occasion I “forgot” to brush it.

    Grr! I just lost my post. Don’t you hate when that happens? As I was saying….I used to put ponytails, braids, bows, and barretts in my oldest daughter’s hair. Now when daughter #3 walks out the door, she’s lucky if I brush it. LOL! At least they are clean…

      I don’t know what the deal is, but your comments always get flagged as spam so that’s why you’d see them appear here for awhile!

    I may know a little something about lettin’ the kids go off with knots. Especially my middle daughter, that child has knots for her knots it is so bad. I will just have to face facts, she will never have silky smooth pretty flat hair like I’d like *pouts*

    John does mornings at our house; I work nights so I’m not home until after school starts. It drives my mother CRAZY that my kids go to school with less-than-perfect hair! She worries that people will talk bad about us. *snort* As if I care!

    I love it! I’ve been known to send my son to school with bedhead when he was younger. As for my girls, I wish I could. The only problem is, they have super curly hair and their version of bedhead looks more like Medusa’s ‘do. lol
    I’ve got Mr. Linky up again this week. I hope you’ll have time to stop by and take a look at the photo I’ve posted this week. Have a great Wednesday Angie.

    When my daughter was little it wasn’t worth the chase now….she is a teen and the amount of time she spends on her hair….well it’s alot!

    I’ve added my (almost) Wordless Wednesday post! And on the topic of morning hair — every morning I ask my 10 year old son, did you brush your hair? You’d never know it b/c it looks like his hair hasn’t been near a brush in DAYS. Like the commenter above me, I don’t focus on that battle, in the hopes that peer pressure (i.e., the cute little girl he wants to impress) will lead him to get better acquainted with his brush! Happy Wednesday.

    Okay, it drives me insane too. Then again, some days Madison looks like she’s barely brushed her hair, even though I’ve sent her back upstairs TWICE to do it. She won’t let me touch her hair anymore, that’s for sure.

    My daughter hates to have her hair brushed! It’s a battle everyday and though she doesn’t go to school, there are many days when we get in the car and I look at her and realize her wild mane has not been tamed. But hey, the 80’s are back right? She can work the big hair thing.

    I’m guilty of showing off the bed head, too! With my son I try to keep his hair buzzed to avoid this. But if it’s been a while since his last buzz, look out! His bed head can be bad! Just think Alfalfa

    Bed head always seems worse when we don’t get around to the barber — we are visiting him today – since my son’s hair looked a lot like this – this morning! Have a great week!

    Four kids here, three that go to school. I allow my son to basically get ready on his own I just let him know if I notice his hair isn’t getting kept that it gets buzzed and that takes care of his hair. Girls have no choice, they do it and then if I don’t like it I do it. They’ve come to the conclusion just to wet the brush and give mom it first. There is one kid that does come to the bus stop with unkept hair. So many times I wanted to brush his hair for him, it isn’t short so you can really tell and it is somewhat wavy so mix that together and it looks like he just crawled out of bed and ran to the stop. Happy WW!

    you call THAT bed head??? You should see my poor unloved girls. Sigh. I used to be a better mom too. Well, better at the ‘appearances’ at least. Maybe, it just means we’ve graduated to focusing on what’s really important? Yep. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

    I love this post! My oldest used to have the cutest bows in her frustratingly short hair. I scoffed at harried mothers who let their little girls’ locks fly free. And now, with my strong willed third child, I am that mother. Not only does her hair not have bows in it for longer than a few minutes a day… it’s often extra curly from not being brushed! Call it lazy, call it pick your battles…. call it fodder for the wedding day toast… it is what it is.

    Ya know I’ve been thinking about this all day trying to think of what kind of comment I should leave because I signed up last night. Well, I remember my youngest boy getting up, and he always had bed head especially after a haircut. I would wet it down, and put a winter cap over his head & he’d go to school. He didn’t like it much, but oh well. I just kept thinking about the other kids making fun of him I guess & he had enough problems with that.
