"Mum, will you cut Chrissies fringe like Brody Dalle from the Distillers ?" says Rachel showing me a page from a music magazine.

"Sure, I love cutting hair. Sit down here Chrissie"

Snip snip snip........ Chrissis runs to the mirror.

"Oh I love it" she squeals.

"Tell me something girls. You know this Emo Trend of wearing black clothes and black hair?"

Thanks all for your comments. They are good girls and I agree it IS good to keep the dialog open with them.
