That because I have tattoos, a belly button piercing, four earrings in one ear and three in the other, that I am a bad example as a mom. She says that it's a bad example for the kids. I don't really get this...what do tattoos and piercings have to do with my ability to raise my children? If anything, it allows me to have a much more open relationship with my children than she and I have ever had. We talk about everything. My second daughter asked me if I will let her have piercings, and I told her yes...but not on her face. And not until she is much older. As for tattoos, they have to wait until they are legally able to get one done. I want it to be their choice. I don't see anything wrong with body piercings or tattoos. They are just another form of self-expression. I can't wait to see what my mom says after my next trip to get my hair done...I am going to get blue and purple highlights and lowlights...heeheeheeheheheheh!
Tell your mom to butt out. I have tats and right now my hair is 3 different colors and all of my school aged kids are on the honor roll and my oldest just got the highest marks at her piano competition. They all give freely to charities. My oldest has even donated her hair to Locks of Love twice. They are good kids despite what we look like. (DH has tats too) As for anon 45, moms get to spend money on themselves too. Her getting her hair done is no different from other moms getting theirs done 'natural colors' or getting their nails done ect. And why not splurge on a new tat? Just because she is a mom doesn't mean she has to stop being her. It also doesn't mean she has to stop spending any money on herself. It's not selfish at all.
