Is it just me or do you get sick of people always saying "Oh my, (s)he is SO blonde!" "What a toehead!" and the like? I don't walk up to other parents and say "wow, what a brunette child" or "my, that's some RED hair". The first fifty times were cute, but at time #1,073 it's starting to get old.
I just smile and agree/try to be nice and humor them.
I have a blonde and a red head - so we get WAY more comments on the red hair. Yes, people do come up all the time (especially when she was little) and tell us that she had red hair. Um, really, I never noticed, thanks for the update! It seems like old people are the worst. For some reason, they think they have a right to touch her hair, which she never liked. Finally, she would simply say, thank you, but please keep your hands to yourself. They often times looked like they had been slapped - which is what I wanted to do anyway!

My kid has never been called a toe head. I get reaction for she is so blond and I am so dark haired. People are surprised.
