Blonde beach baby
That was Allie.
Last week, Emily asked how they (the girls) have blonde hair because Mommy and Daddy have brown hair and shouldn't kids have the same color hair as their parents. I did my best to explain genetics to a 5 year old. As children, Rich and I both had much lighter hair. Rich was blonde just like the girls are now while my hair was more of a light honey color, which my pediatrician labeled as dirty blonde. Although my hair is much darker now, it doesn't take much to lighten it.
The girls' hair darkens during the winter months and lightens with the summer sun. Yesterday, they were discussing what color their hair would be when they are older and Anna said that hers was going to be pink. (I may regret writing this but if they want pink hair and they are old enough (not like 8 years old), they can have pink hair.)
