Back to respectability

Well, in SoCal, I had several long talks with my brother. In one of them, I told him various things about our lives and family and typical brother stuff.... In return, he said something along the lines of "dude, get a haircut." When even your brother tells you to do it, it's time. So I did: Just about all of it. I went from shoulder length hair to trimmed sides and looking just like everyone else. Sigh... At least I don't have to act respectable.

Could you have your brother call my teenage sons? :)

Dude, you were scaring my daughter.

She misses you now, though.

There went your street cred as a prof. (I should talk, I'm pretty clean cut, but as a red head in Africa, I'm already way out there. Plus it's even a little radical to wear jeans as a grad student here.;-) When do we get to see before and after pictures.

PS - What's up with your bro's picture?

Yes, do we get to see before & after pics?

I'll see if John can help, Paula. I can't believe you have teenage sons... from your pic they should be much younger.

As far as my brother's picture, that's him dressed up like a blonde bombshell driving his convertible around. Not sure how often he does that. ;-) (I think it was for a costume party).

As for a picture of me, truly I'm not very photogenic, and documenting changes in my looks feels like a waste of computer resources.

Thanks Brad. That's the nicest thing you've ever said to me :)

My oldest will be 17 in October. I also have one who just turned 15 and three others. Never a dull moment...

Yikes! I'm about ready to enter that age group with my 13 year-old, and I don't think that I'm ready!

Get the book "Yes, Your Teen is Crazy" by Dr. Michael Bradley.

I highly recommend it for parents of teens!

It's a great read and very informative.

Thank you Paula. I think I'll be reading the book very carefully in the near future.
