The Home of Daddy's Day Dare! ~ I am just trying to stay above water

DYLANism ~ please don’t candy-coat it

Remember several years ago when the cute little  words of wisdom used to roll off my oldest daughter’s mouth, which I tried to coin, “DYLANisms“?

Well this old blog has slowed down, partly because these cute little innocent lines just don’t roll off her tongue so much any more.. And I have missed them.

Or have I?

Last Thursday, through a few scheduling snafu’s Dylan ended up having to ride with me to get my haircut. Well she had been talking about getting a summer cut too so I thought why not let her get first salon experience also? Kinda like an impromptu Daddy Date.

And she did, she got the full treatment. Even a professional lesson on washing and drying her hair

…as well as how not to dry your hair.

She’s getting older!

Anyway, every time I sit down to get my haircut I always jokingly tell my stylist I would like her to cut it in a way that makes me look younger…and maybe a bit more professional.

Well this girl is good but not that good!

So when she was done I turned to Dylan and asked her, “What do you think?”

You see every-time I come home from getting my haircut as soon as I walk in the door the first thing out of her mouth is, “Daddy, I like your haircut!

So I asked her half-heartedly, “Do you think I look any younger?” expecting some sort of nice complimentary reply.

She shook her head no.

Disillusioned I said, “No? Why not? What more does she need to do to help me look younger?

Dylan innocently looks up at me, “Your face!”

Thank you! Thank you!

My stylist and I both looked at each other and burst out laughing.

You don’t have a sander, do you?” I asked.

I think next time she can find her own stylist.


That’s all for now. Have the best summer weekend knuckleheads!

I’ll try to do better next time.

Do you think I look any younger?

  1. Yes, Honesty. I wish it were more and ‘Exaggeration’ of kids and not so much Honesty. Hey Sandy! I hope you are doing well in Sandyland. We are trying to plan vacations, when can you get off?

  2. Oh, the honesty of kids. 🙂

  3. Hmmm Wisdom. I am sure I have had that already but my memory lets me down. 🙂 Yes now I know but I imagine I’ll keep asking these candid questions as they are (usually) good kids. Some times they are leading questions but I always enjoy hearing their answers. I hope you are doing well Betsy! Thanks for dropping by…

  4. Fur babies, huh? Yes this one is honest to a fault. I guess she didn’t understand the question. So good to hear from you APAN! I hope you are doing well. Thanks for dropping by and saying Hello!

  5. You shouldn’t have asked. With age comes wisdom, right? Now you know. Ah, kids. Like my sister who just shared that the check out girl asked when she was due, but she’s not pregnant. She asked her son, does this dress make me look pregnant? He said, “No, it’s your big belly that does.” Live and learn! Do not ask kids whom you’ve trained to always be honest! Ultimate backfire!

  6. Lol, out of the mouths of babes! And that is why I have fur babies and not the real kind. 😁

I would love to hear from you...
