Hair Removal Karma


Apparently one of my kids felt their eyebrows looked too much like this guy's. Did you notice the use of the past tense there? Because this child has subsequently taken the matter into their own hands, so to speak.

It's not too noticeable unless you're looking for it, but once you are - it looks almost as if Tinkerbell had taken a teeny tiny weed whacker and gone after the outer half of both eyebrows. Oh yah, they look so much better now. Every single one of my children is an independent soul and they don't really think they need any assistance from me. (Tweezers could have done a much nicer job, but no! that would not have been independent enough).

Kinda reminds me of the time I decided to shave my legs and didn't have a clue what I was doing. Turns out you don't have to press very hard for the hair (and some skin) to come off. I had my sister keep watch and thought I could be all sneaky-like and have silky smooth legs without anybody (read: mom) being the wiser. But moms have a way of finding out these things - especially when the blunt ends of the blond hair regrowth starts glinting off all kinds of reflection in the sunlight.

Karma is the real deal my friends.

Pop on over to Lara's place, she's talking about her brand new baby (I love birth stories)!

I remember shaving my legs for the first time (without permission of course). I used a dry razor and my legs got horrible razor burn and looked sunburned afterwards. It was a learning experience for me...

Heff - I think I used soap and had a similar experience - so different than the way I do it now.

Ahhhh...good fun! I have 4 girls so I am expecting lots of good times like this in my future! I am still waiting for the "Hey look Mom! I cut my own hair" moment, but it hasn't happened yet (knock on wood)! Thanks for sharing!

I did the dry shave without my mom knowing too. Not the best idea!

What?! No pictures?!
My 7 year old did this not too long ago...

I remember I wanted to shave so bad and my mom said, "Once you start you're going to wish that you never had to do it."

She was right.

That's so funny! My eight year old just did the same thing! Instead of trimming around the edge she wacked a path right through the middle of one eyebrow. Why????

Lazy, it sounds like your daughter and mine are striving for that late 80s early 90s hip hop look--at least they're not shaving their heads and carving patterns into the fuzz...

If it makes you feel any better, my mother does the same thing.

On purpose.
