Crazy Hair Day

Yesterday we celebrated a school-wide morning meeting.  Every couple of months we have a special day sponsored by the student council.  Yesterday, was crazy hair day.  I am not into crazy hair day or  pajama day.  I am willing to wear team shirts or tie dye shirts, but  I draw the line at some things.  I wore green because it was St. Patrick’s Day.  One of my colleagues mentioned that she had green hair spray.  My first reaction was, thanks, but no thanks.  The idea started to weigh on me, knowing that the kids would be gung ho and would likely ask me why I hadn’t done anything to my hair.  My plan was to have a thin stripe on each side.  It turned out to be a rather large stripe on both sides. Oh, well.  The kids were very excited, saying you are the only teacher who did something with your hair.

When I got home, I had to go to the store and I quickly watched my stripes out in the bathroom sink.  Later, when I got home my husband asked me why the bathroom sink was green.  Oops.

This morning,  just before the kids came my fellow teacher mentioned, you still have green in your hair. Looking closely in the mirror I saw some residual green and quickly washed the strands before the kids came in for the day.

In conclusion, I will probably participate next year, but I will plan it better.

    I try to participate in these special days, but draw the line on some (mostly because they require too much effort on my part), but the kids do always appreciate it. Thanks for giving me an idea for a slice!

    I am with you…crazy hair day isn’t my thing but it sounds like going out of your comfort zone really made the kids happy. Sometimes we kids need to see the crazy in us:-) even if it’s just crazy hair!

    I did not wear track pants or dress up from 60s this week either. Green in my hair? I think you are brave!

    My naturally curly hair is crazy on its own, so it would take some major work (and lots of hair spray) to make it wild enough for “crazy hair day”. Congrats on stepping outside your comfort zone and connecting with the kids!

    Oh, good for you – you had fun with this, and your kids will always remember that you did this. Very cool.
