The Hair Affair by Shamika Jackson

Kids are so observant.

The day after I shaved my head I came to work with a wig on.  This isn’t unusual for me, but it isn’t something that I have discussed with my class.  As some of you may know, the day after shaving your head is often itchy from little loose hairs.  So, I was, of course, scratching my head with both hands.  At first I scratched with the wig on.  That wasn’t satisfactory, so I pushed the wig back on my head and started to scratch.  This caught one student’s attention immediately.  His reaction was priceless.  His eyes were as big as saucers and he was, literally, speechless.  I didn’t know what to say, I just started laughing.

This goes to show us that our kids are ALWAYS paying attention!  We talked about wigs and I explained that I wear wigs because it hurts to comb my hair.  I have several different wigs and I still get interesting looks when I wear different styles.  Welcome to life in the Owl room!
