2 nights ago. Actually it was for my 7 y/o daughter. It was a boy ( I didn't know until later in the conversation). And I hear. . .
". . .so you want me to put my mom on the phone?" there is a pause while the child on the other end speaks. I assume it's her bestie trying to sucker me and her mom into another sleepover. Then she says, "Mommy, where do you get my beads from?". Odd question since the child I think is on the phone is hispanic with really long hair and I know her mom well enough to know that she wouldn't dare bead her daughter's hair. So I ask what she was talking about. . .
"Mommy, Kareem wants to know where you get my beads from." I am shocked, never heard of this Kareem before and he wants to call my little girl about beads??? Then it comes out that Kareem's mom wants to know.
I guess the thing that shocked me is that I have no clue how that family got my phone number. No matter how hard they would have tried, they should have only gotten the phone number at bf's house b/c that's the number I give them. And how on earth did that woman know what was on my daughter's head? So I still have no clue who those people were. Since we're in the burbs, I assume it wasn't difficult for my daughter to stand out with braids and beads. And I"m hoping it was nothing more than that woman has a little girl whose hair she wanted to bead.
Hmm, so that's my weird random bead story, lol.
