My mom used to read me this book titled, "Stephanie's Ponytail". It's about this spunky girl named Stephanie who came to school one day with her hair in a ponytail and the next day when she wore the ponytail again, she saw that everyone had done the same. Every time she changed her hair, everyone else did the same. One day she said that the next day she was coming to school bald and when she came to school she saw everyone had shaved their head but her and once again she could wear her ponytail without fear of being copied.
I think my mom knew that I would be more like that girl than even I realized.
