The Tide Has Turned

They say that boys like girls like their mothers. Well, you're gonna want to take a seat for this one. Huyen is a lot like my mom. No, Huyen isn't a suburban Jewish mother. And no, my mother isn't an unemployed Vietnamese woman.

However, they do have a lot in common including great mothering instincts (Huyen is phenomenal whenever kids are around) and the knack for firing off 100 questions at me in a span of five minutes. But there's something else I found out this week. Huyen has grey hairs...and a bunch of them! They're all nestled in a little spot on the right side of her head. For those of you who know my mother, she's got a grey hair or two also.

If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll recall the video where Huyen plucked the grey hairs from my head. She loves coming up behind me when I'm doing work and yanking my colorless hairs and telling me, "You're so old." Well, the tide has turned. This week I got to pull Huyen's white hairs out.
