I know that DH and I don't look like traditional parents, we have piercings (dh has guages and a lip ring, i have guages, and 6 more peircings in my ears and a nose ring), we have mohawks. we dress clean, our kids are always clean, no torn stained clothing, hair combed and cute. We live in Surprise AZ, which is literally surrounded by Sun Cities (all elderly residential areas) During the cooler months, the snow birds will come in. My DH has always gotten weird looks BC of his hair but he doesn't care, he loves his hair, he knows hes a good person and just smiles when an old person stares at him and on occasion older ladies and men will come up and compliment his hair, ask how he keeps it up and will compliment our girls. Well recently I had him do a Mohawk for me, its buzzed a little short on the side, its a feminine kind, I think it looks cute and its nice to be able to style my hair again. Well, yesterday we go to the store for diapers and such and we walk in one isle to get disinfecting wipes and this old woman was just GLARING at me the whole time. Like fucking GLARING, daggers coming out of her eyes, then she looks at my DH and her jaw drops!
I don't understand this. DH says I shouldn't let it bother me or make me feel insecure and I know i shouldn't but...I didn't do anything to her. I was talking to my girls, smiling and laughing with them and then i saw her face and instantly i just felt like crap..
Idk i guess I'm just wondering what other woman do in this situation...do you ignore it and not let it bother you. I went home and ended up having a panic attack bc after that i felt like I was getting bad looks the rest of the time in the store.. :[
