I wondered if mothers and fathers with unattractive children could see that their children weren’t stunning.  Going through some old pictures of Adelaide’s hair, my suspicions were confirmed: THEY HAVE NO IDEA.

I mean, we knew enough to take pictures of it, knew enough to consider cutting it, but that was it.  I have memories of my sister-in-law saying she was “dying to get her hands on that hair,” but she went to beauty school so we just figured she wanted to get her hands on everyone’s hair.

I ask my friends why they never said anything about it to us and they’re always all “we thought you knew…”

Again, WE HAD NO IDEA.
