The other night my eldest asked me to help her shave her legs since she had gotten a cut on the other leg. When I went into the bathroom with her and lathered her up with shaving cream, I saw it…
Think Robin Williams- the dark hair everywhere. Now, on the prior leg, she had gone above her knee- and I had warned her to stay below. But since she had already started I was unsure of how to proceed. Regardless, on her upper thigh there really is no place to stop.
As I asked her to turn around so I could then do the back of her leg, we discussed the only option that she has when she’s slightly older: laser.
Kid: Mom, will it hurt?
Me: It will hurt a lot less than being lonely for the rest of your life.
