My 6 y/o told me she wanted to be a BOY!

LOL! I was brushing her hair and she screamed at me that she wanted to be a boy. I told her fine we can shave your head and you can stop wearing all those cute little skirts, pantyhose and $25 sandals! I told her she had to wear her brothers clothes, plain tees and long shorts. She changed her mind and decided she likes being a girl! What things have your kids said when they were mad at you and then later changed their mind?

  • LOL! I am a hairstylist and always fight with my 6 year old when it is time for a haircut, last week he said I wanna be a girl, so I don't have to get my haircut all the time,, so tell her there is a downside to both!

  • My 5yo DD has told me that she never wants me to talk to her again. Usually after just a couple of minutes she's crying because I stopped talking to her. LOL

  • lol, poor kid! The things they come up with! Maybe she wants to consider a cute little bob. Of course I say that and I want my DD to have long hair so I am sure she will live in 2 braids through her yonger years so there are less snarles to deal with. My DD has a lot of hair already at 2yrs old.

  • LMAO ! That is how I get my DD to sit still while I comb out her hair. 'Do you want pretty princess hair or should I take you to get it cut like a boy?' She sits right still. :0)

  • When my daughter was little she told me she wished she were black. She said black people were prettier and had better names. I told her sorry, there was nothing I could do to help
