Pink Betty?

This week brought one of those great "mom" know, when your kid asks a question you REALLY don't know what to tell him. Like when you're watching TV and a Viagra commercial comes on.

This week's fun happened at the hair salon, where I'd brought my sons (10 & 11) for haircuts. We were waiting for the stylist when the younger one looks over at a shelf of beauty products and asks me what the "black, brown, blonde, auburn, and pink betty" is for.

So I look and there are a bunch of little boxes with line drawings of a woman's torso with a brightly colored bikini bottom, and at the top of the box it says "color for the hair down there." (You can check it out for yourself at

OMG! Color me clueless, but I never knew they had special hair dye just for THAT!

Meanwhile, my son's waiting expectantly for an answer.

So I tell him: Umm, ummm---oh LOOK! Here comes the hair cut lady!

(Dodged that teaching moment pretty well, I thought.)

Chalk one up for ol' mom.

Until next Friday...

LOL I have had to answer a lot of tough questions from my kids (including viagra and oral sex) , and I've done pretty well so far, but I'm afraid that one would even leave me stumped.
