I also believe in using humor; my mom has always criticized my hair--you need a haircut, there's too much for your small face, etc., etc. Used to make me crazy; then I used to steal myself for the comments, because they'd be the first ones she'd make upon seeing me. Now, I just shrug, saying "I love it like this!" I have never bothered talking about the CG method with her, because there would be no point. Giving up the need for mom's approval...it's tough!
