Not Going There
July 25, 2012
A coworkers daughter is spending a few weeks with him and his new wife. This is a happy time for father and daughter. His wife is also divorced and her son has gone to visit his day who is also remarried. On the outside the family dynamic seems very healthy and knowing this coworker I'm not surprised and happy for them. I got to spend some time with his daughter Dawn. This is a big time for her as she starts college in the fall. She spends quality time with her stepmom tanning on their deck while dad is at work. Dawn told me of a concern she had. Her stepmom used to "do hair" and offered to cut and color Dawns beautiful locks.. Dawn agreed but has since changed her mind and doesn't know how to give voice to that. Really, think about the dangerous triangle of problems a bad hair do could do between all the moms involved. My advice to her was to have her dad fix it and fast.
