Confession: In the winter time I am not very good at keeping my legs shaved. I figure I have pants on so my legs don’t see the light of day anyway. Why bother, right?
Well, unfortunately you can’t put pants on a face, and Nathan is old enough now to be growing some facial hair. Lately I have had to learn to shave Nathan’s face. Yikes! I’m always scared I’m going to cut him. This kid can grow a pretty good ‘stache at 15, and I’m sure he is going to have a full beard before long. My husband has had to teach me where I can shave with the grain of the hair and against the grain. Whew! I never knew shaving facial hair was so crazy! I also have to make all these facial contortions (that I hope Nathan will copy) when I shave him so I can get all those hard to reach places (like right under the nose and just below the bottom lip).
I know you are wondering why my husband doesn’t shave Nathan. Believe me, he has! He isn’t always available though, so the task often falls to me.
So, today I am thankful that I am not of the male species–I’m glad I don’t have facial hair that I have to shave on a daily basis. At least I can get away with wearing pants in the winter time:).
