Pipe cleaners. Let's test the market.

by Believe on April 24, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My daughter is weird. It's as if she doesn't see things "the right way". Case in point, this morning, as she was putting pipe cleaners into her hair I asked her "why are you doing that?". Her answer, if you can call it that, was "because I've never seen anyone else wear pipe cleaners in their hair." I responded with a gentle warning that the children that don't wear pipe cleaners in there hair may find that unusual. She responded with "we won't know until I go to school wearing pipe cleaners." She's original. She's unusual. She's creative. But most of all, she is brave.
