At the shops this afternoon the kids asked me if the boxes were hair colour. I said yes. Lillian liked the red colour. I told her I like the colour red also. She then told me that she wanted to have that colour hair as well. I told her and Julia that I loved their hair colour, it is a lovely shade of blonde and I wish mine was like this, although not to be.
Lilly then told pointed at a box that has blonde hair dye and said “Mummy you could use this and your hair would be like ours.” I did explain that was very nice but I am fine with not having blonde hair and told the girls I was not sure if it would suit me. They both told me that I would look lovely blonde. This of course was very nice to hear from your two adorable little girls who got into a lot of trouble today.
I think it was then Lillian again who then said, “Look mummy this one comes with curls!” How cute, she thought that the dye also gave you curls. Well after thinking about it, the box does appear like it does. There is a woman with lovely curly hair and making out that is what yours will look like, if you use this product. I told her that is exactly right as she was very insistent. I did try and correct her, but she told me it was so. It said on the box! Both girls then showed me the picture and said, “See mummy”, well it must be right then.
It was so cute and adorable, a couple of ladies could not help but have a giggle. My little girls are very clever and smart. I never thought about the packaging that way before. What has your child done or said that has made you look at things differently?
