Ah, little children. Nothing beats them for honesty.
Polite, kindly intentioned adults will (mercifully) tell each other white lies as occasion demands. For example, assuring me that my hair looks fine when in reality it looks like it did today.
Not so with the very young- oh no. And no need to ask for their opinion; it’s freely given, quite unsolicited.
Randomly, half way through this afternoon, a small, sweet child laughed in a friendly, conspiratorial manner with (read: at) me. While chuckling to me that my hair looked all crazy today.
This is the photo I took later today, to show the hairdresser who will be cutting my hair tomorrow. I’d been pseudo-planning on getting my hair cut for quite a while. Honestly.
