To Dye or Not to Dye???

That be the question people! Since anyone who reads this blog or knows me I come from the school of far less then stellar parenting. So I figured since hubby and I are on different sides of this issue. I would see what the public has to say about what we should do. See this is the stellar parenting on my part I'm talking about.

So we have a near 6 year old Diva going on 20 some days. Her newest fixation seems to be the lovely and talented Selena Gomez. Well she has been asking for her hair to be like Selena's. I just figured at first that she wanted it straight, since I have done this with her before. On a few occasions, nothing on a regular basis. There is one slight change. She wants her hair dark like said "actress".

Hubby is an adament NO!, well lets say "HELL NO!"And pretty much pissed that I was entertaining the idea. My look at it is this. Let her express herself now instead of when she is 20 something. Just use a semi-permanent color/wash. It's just hair it will grow back or wash out in 20 or so washes. It is not like she is 6 asking for hot pink hair and a mohawk. Wait, that will probably be Chloe and the mohawk will be green or something. BTW Connor has a little fo-hawk that Auntie did for him. Which hubby kinda had an issue with as well. And he says I'm the one getting too consertive in my old age.

What do you think? Would you do it? Why or why not? Are we starting to early with this stuff? And if we do it, are we setting up for bigger issues down the road?? Or letting her realize that within some reason she can freely express herself while under our stellar authority??

Should I sign the consisten for my 10 year old to get her first tattoo??? }:)
