I Am Woman




























Ahhh, my summer as a boy...Is this when my love of Legos and Matchbox cars began? Is this how I gained my inner confidence, positive outlook on life, and dry sense of humor? Perhaps.

At least my hair grows fast.

caz said...

you are O.F.F.I.C.I.A.L.L.Y my favourite blogger of all time! (since january when I ventured into blogLand.. *ahem*) anywhoos... I almost choked on my sandwich because I was trying to eat my lunch/read your blog/laugh out loud all at the same time...

Just thought you should know.. xx

Young and Fabulous said...

i am literally DYING. especially over your wild feral and corey mathhews references

i look back at pics of my younger self with half cut hair, a head full of curls, and cow-licks like you read about, and though some of them were heinous, I'm glad I don't look like those Barbie doll pageant girls! lol

I imagine you were a cute little he-she that summer. But look at you now? SHOW STOPPA.

xoxox

Oh No. The perm~anent! Gasp! I hear ya on the tangles, that was me too! Except when I was 12 I begged and begged my mother to take me to the hair cut and get it chopped up to my shoulders. And I was still fully gasping!!! Poor bon bons! Perhaps you should be able to grow your hair to your ankles by november with your pregnancy hormones no?! xox!

OMG. I HAD THIS SUMMER TOO. And...actually...I think it might have been the summer of '93!! The last time I ever let my mother cut my hair (1993), she cut it unevenly, so then to fix her mistake...she cut more...and then more...and you get the idea.

Cashier to me: Are you and your brother buying school supplies?
Me: I'M A GIRLLLLLLLL!!!!

The random cruelty of children: Why are you wearing a dress if you're a boy? Hahahaha! We're all tiny comedians!

Brissa said...

Girl of The Grove said...

This story is awesome. I had a similar hair disaster, only in reverse. I always wanted curly hair so in 3rd grade, I finally convinced my mom to let me get a perm. Except she didn't take me to a salon to have it professionally done. No. She let my aunt do it at home. I ended up looking like a cross between a poodle and a flat-chested Dolly Parton. Then my mom cut my hair into a super-short pixie in an attempt to fix it. To make it even more embarrassing, we had our annual school photos right when the hair was in the most awkward stages of growing out. Not only is it documented for eternity in that school photo, but that was also the year I made it to the regional spelling bee championship. Of course, the San Antonio Express News (the only major newspaper in the city) had a little article about me representing the city for South Texas and they used that horrible picture with my awkward half-permed, semi-grown-out pixie cut!!! Seeing that photo in the newspaper was one of the most embarrassing moments of my childhood. I've never had another perm since.

Taylor said...

The Asian Corey Mathews comment! Bahaha! Also, my mom cut my sisters hair into a boy bowl cut, but it got worse when it was growing out and then she got a child mullet. Makes for some hilarious family pictures!

♥ Nadine ♥ said...

Haha, cheers to your dry sense of humor. :)

And thanks for making me laugh.
XO.

Morgan said...

i'm cracking up right now. these drawings and your commentary are hilarious! i think we all went through those phases in our childhood where we had some awkwardness about ourselves. i had bangs with a cowlick that could never be tamed.. haha :-)

Becca said...

I'm not gonna lie, that does look like chewbacca's arm (although I can see it as hair as well). I never really had a hard time with my hair, it pretty much was stick staight and laid down nicely...until summer of '93 when I got a perm as well! I still remember the stench and sitting in Supercuts at the mall for hours. It only stayed in for a week, plus it looked crazy anyways. Do remember hair detangler spray?! What was that stuff made of anyways?!

Mr. Taylor and his Lady said...

ha, this story totally cracked me up! i was exactly like you with my mom liking my long hair and wanting to brush it all the time. but instead of her cutting it, i cut it myself. cue the awkward and embarrassing mullet. yeah....
thanks for the blog lovin' girl!

Ashlyn said...

i remember my mom having the neighbor cut my hair & it was a boy hair cute & i think i was in 7th grade! lol

but when i was younger i use to cut my hair all the time in class. my mom said that the teacher told her that i would hide behind the bookshelf & do it. oh the times of being young & pretending to be your own hairstylist!

kira said...

Haha...I imagine an Asian Cory Matthews would be pretty adorable.

Shalyn said...

The fact that you mentioned Boy Meets World makes you my favorite person. You MUST post a real picture!

Megan said...

Hahahaha! I have to admit that I totally busted out laughing with the Cory Matthews reference! You are too funny, Bon Bon!

Emily said...

This is hilarious!! When I was around 9 my grandma took sheers to my head and made it that short too...I had a little 'problem' that she felt the need to chop off to take care of, but I hated it!
By the way, LOVED Boy meets world. Too funny w/your comparison.

Hollie Ann said...

wow!!! love this! and the little characters hahaha

The Almost Mrs. said...

I am definitely crying right now...from laughter, and a little bit from horrible grade school memories. It was August of '98 when my mom decided I needed a "Dorothy Hammill" haircut... At least my ears were pierced...

Robots in Trouble said...

LOL! My mom used to be crazy about my hair too, and she got the idea that she would cut my hair because she thought that it would be fun that way... Ahhhh I cried LOL!

Ohhh thank you for the comment! I sure will NOT forget about the "little people" when I get rich and famous hehhee! *sigh* Like that would ever happen...

Jennifer said...

Natalie said...

LaynahRose said...

hilarious :) i didnt brush my hair when i was a kid either...or wear shoes for that matter...but fortunately my mom didnt cut all my hair off!

Andrea@fancythat! said...

I echo the others. I'm laughing right now.

Nikki said...

Hahah! I cried when my Mom brushed my hair and she always threatened to cut it. Then my friend's mom cut her hair and I never opened my mouth again. I'm pretty sure all the moms paid that mom to do it.

Ashley said...

You might be my new favorite! Love this post and laughed out loud SEVERAL times. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

G. said...

You're hilarious!!!

My Beautiful Life said...

Hysterical. Just found this one. The perm do reminds me of a kdrama I saw a few months back called boys before flowers. The lead guy had a permy looking do' that for whatever reason just made me think of your picture.

I'm sure you were adorable short hair and all. You have one of those perfect faces like one of my little sisters who can pull of any hairstyle.

Thanks for the cartoon laugh this morning.
