They say that in the next 100 years, redheads will be extinct. (See the assumption here. I love how the article says that we were created by a mutation. So, that technically makes me an X-men, right?)

Rather than "going green" or "recycling", I decided to save our beloved planet earth by populating it with redheads, and therefore keeping the redhead gene alive. (If I was one of Captain Planet's Planeteer's, my element power ring would be "Ginger". GO PLANET!)

So basically, my plan is to have a red-headed daughter.

Fortunately, I have red hair:

Unfortunately, no one in my family has red hair:

Fortunately, I married into a family that has plenty of redheads:

Unfortunately, my own husband does not have red hair:

(Actually, I really should give William some credit. Technically, he does have red hair but only in his beard. As much as I want our daughter to have red hair, that red-beard gene would be VERY unfortunate.)

I think the odds are FOR the redhead gene...right? We'll just have to see on March 12th.

In other unrelated news, here's a true story: Chubbs ran away, was gone for 6+ hours, and was found in Ahwatukee. That's all I'm going to say about that.
I'll just let you fill in the holes of that story by leaving this photo:


  1. My aunt and my grandma had red hair, but no one in my immediate family does, and I only have a *tiny* amount of red in my beard, er, hair. Gary has one sister with strawberry blonde hair and he definitely has no red hair. C came out with dark brown hair that has, over the last 5 months turned a glorious shade of copper. I'm not sure where it comes from, but I love it more than donuts or cats who wear wigs.

    Long live the Redheads!!

  2. Love this post!!! I married a red head and out of my 4 boys, 2 are REALLY red and one is a strawberry blonde. Tami doesn't have red hair and neither does her husband... but she ended up with one... Kari has 2... There are NO guarantee's all we can do is hope!:) And know that Grandma and Grandpa Coombs would love them!!! However... If I was blessed to have a daughter... I think I would cry if she didn't have read hair...

  3. I have always been insanely jealous of your Ariel red hair.

    Wow, it feels good to get that off my chest.
