Ice Cream

Once upon a time my 7 year old nephew Elijah was slightly annoyed because people kept making comments about his brother Evan's hair (which is red), and never made any comments about his hair (which is blond).

I made an effort to comment about Elijah's hair whenever I saw him. I'm kind of weird... I said, "I just want to eat your hair! It reminds me of vanilla ice cream. No one can pass up vanilla! You're so lucky that you have so many flavors of ice cream hair in your family. You have Evan's strawberry, your vanilla, Emerson's chocolate, and Edison's vanilla strawberry swirl. We only have chocolate in our family."

How I referred to hair color being like ice cream flavors must have stuck. My nephews were talking about different ice cream flavors in comparison to hair color.

They call me "Aunt Lissy". One of them said, "Aunt Lissy's hair is Rocky Road Ice Cream." The other said, "The grey streaks are the marshmallows."

I don't have any problem with people coloring their hair. In fact I think it's fun with all the colors that are out there. Plain colors are natural looking, and fun in their own way to.

Those that color their hair do not have Rocky Road Ice Cream hair like me. I suppose blond highlights could be marshmallows to. I picked a Rocky Road Ice Cream with even more yummy chunks added. Ha

In all seriousness I'm just glad Elijah's happy with his hair color now. He's my vanilla boy.

When I was little I was envious of my older sister Angela's hair. Her hair is strawberry blond, so it's strawberry vanilla swirl ice cream. 

I always wanted red headed children. It's a recessive gene. My Dad is a true red head. I know they are more sensitive to the sun, have thinner skin, and get more freckles. They are also more on the rare side, which makes them unique. 

I am happy with my brown hair, brown eyed boys. Chocolate is wonderful!

What color of hair do you like?

What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Shoot maybe if I thought of the gray hairs as marshmallows I wouldn't hate them so much.

What a sweet way to lift his confidence! I'm a plain jane and usually stick with vanilla ice cream. Maybe peanut butter if I'm feeling spry lol

My hair would be plain ol' chocolate if I didn't highlight it. Maybe mine's a chocolate and peanut butter swirl?

As a redhead, I never really color my hair... I did do highlights a few times, but nothing major... I want to do the whole funky hair color, but not sure if I will actually do it, since I do like my hair color.
All of Marc's boys have brown hair... still up in the air for Savannah, its light Brown now, but has hints of red at times.

Coffee ice cream is my favorite, but as long as it doesn't have nuts in it, I am not that picky!
