Cowboy loves red hair. He has an undeniable sweet spot for it. He loves it almost as much as he loves me. I came to realize his love for red hair on date #7. Okay, I really don’t remember when I realized this. But, simply put…he loves the color red…on hair.
Last time I looked in the mirror, my reflection came back as a blonde. So I’m not sure what his immediate attraction to me was except maybe my winning personality. Yes that’s probably it…I’m so personable. Lol! I’m about as far from a red head as you can get! I have mountains of blonde hair. Sometimes when I first wake up I resemble a cutip, hair going every which way EXCEPT the right way!
Cowboy leaves the house before I do. Now that I think about it, I’m usually still in bed when he leaves, don’t judge, I’m just keeping it real for y’all. He thinks it’s funny to whisper in my ear “Good luck with your hair today”. Ugh. That’s my sign to get out of bed and try to control my mane. I would like to say that all of my blonde hair is natural but that would be as big of a fib as my hair. A BIG kudos to my hair stylist, Tutti, for keeping it “a la naturel”. She is amazingly talented and deserves every penny that I charge on Cowboy’s credit card (that he doesn’t know I have). Lol, if you’re reading this Cowboy, calm down, I’m only teasin. I’m a big girl and can pay my way.
ME: Don’t forget, I have a hair appointment today after work.
COWBOY: Will you come home as a red head?
ME: I hate to disappoint ya AGAIN but this hair is staying blonde.
COWBOY: Well.. I love you anyway.
ME: Umm, thanks?
I am a blonde thru and thru AND have my share of blonde moments to prove it (but that’s another story).
Little did Cowboy know that a beautiful red head would come into his life via our Boy Wonder. And let me tell ya folks, he adores her. For the sake of the blog, we’ll call her “Red”. Get it? Red for red hair. Haha!
When Boy Wonder brought her this red headed beauty home to meet us Cowboy knew right then that she was “the one” for him.
ME: So what did you think of her?
COWBOY: That boy needs to marry her. She’s a keeper.
One hot summer afternoon, me, Sweet Girl and Red were swimming and the subject of our Boy Wonder came up. Sweet Girl, as always, was talking about how cute her brother was. It’s almost as if she has forgotten the time when she wanted to trade him in for a kitten (but that’s another story).
Back to the conversation between us gals:
I mentioned how much I love his dimples and without skipping a beat Red says “I love everything about him”. That’s when I knew. I knew from the bottom of my mama bear heart that those two kids would be married. (If I knew how to insert a heart here, I would).
Our red headed daughter-in-law is beautiful, smart, kind, creative….and the list goes on. But most importantly, she is part of our family and is the best life partner that Boy Wonder could have chosen. And if any of you know Cowboy, you also know that he is a great judge of character (he married me after all) AND he only speaks the truth. So, we are one big happy family…I got another big-hearted daughter, Sweet Girl got the sister she always wanted and Cowboy got his red head.
‘Til next Sunday y’all- Tammy
