    Pink hair really suits you and I liked the buzz...is it that you need enough length to justify the dye? I am currently having this convo with the small boy who has a big box of perm red dye in the cupboard, but also less than a cm of hair (we had to buzz it for him after he decided to cut himself a reverse mohawk - he had a bald patch right in the centre front of his head, the wally). Some days I wonder what he will need to do to rebel, given that his mother actively encourages hair dye and is fairly laidback about everything except good manners.

    Small boy is sick - coughing and crouping. Was meant to go to a 90s party tonight, but took carer's leave from work and partying. Instead, we began the move, while boyo stayed in bed, watching minecraft youtubes.

    Lift heavy. Yes indeed.

    The joys of parenthood and with a babysitter organised, that sucks.... there's that stuff the Doc swears by to get the small one to sleep!

    And 90's fashion, would that have been the boob tubes and crop tops era....

    Absolutely, much more fun than all that drinking and dancing (I presume) and socialising and stuff....

    Yeah, because I'm lazy about re-bleaching the roots (my hair is light brown naturally), I'd like it to be somewhat long before I bother with color. That way, it will always be mostly the same color . Short hair is great for coloring because you can just chop it off and start over in a couple of months, but I just have this vision in my head of long pink hair that needs to be realized.

    I wonder about stuff like that too, being tattooed and pierced, for when I have kids someday.

    When you have kids, you will have other worries that will greatly supercede tattoos and piercings.

    Hope the boy is better and hope another party comes along also. And that moving will go smoothly and quickly!

    Small children, well ours anyway, are incredibly conservative. I have done everything I can, in a non-pushy, respond in the moment way, to present the full extent of life's rich pagent to small boy. Marriage is between people who love each other. Your body, your rules. Choice is a responsibility of adulthood. Change is the engine of growth. Risks are often worth taking.

    Small boy is such a middle Englander. Only married people can have babies, he says. Piercing and tattoos are wrong, he says (still hasn't forgiven me for the nip rings and is most upset I am thinking about a tattoo). Change terrifies him - this move is not making him happy.

    We do everything we can to make life stable and predictable for him, we also very clearly flag for him in advance when things are going to change and talk him through it. I don't know when the resilience will come. Changing swimming teachers reduces him to tears.

    Perhaps, thinking as I type here, he is change-averse because he is himself constantly changing, navigating the world while he is in a state of flux and becoming. We frequently find ourselves playing catch up. When he was tiny, I used to say that I was three months behind - just when I got used to a stage, he moved on to the next.

    He will be an adult before we know it. Another 12 years of parenting.
