Voting is now closed ;)

Thank you all for voting in my poll!

I have decided to go ahead and let my daughter start shaving. I know that she will be thrilled!! I'm going to go out and buy her an electric shaver, so she doesn't end up living with band-aids all over her legs! :)

Out of 16 people who voted, 11 of them said I should go ahead and let her shave.
And most of the responders said they/their daughters started shaving at 12 years old. 11 years old came in at a close second place. So I guess its not too terribly early.

For the past week I have been trying to remember how old I was when I started shaving, and I just can't remember.

What I do remember about it? Well, I don't remember my mother telling me anything about it beforehand. And maybe I just took up shaving without asking? But the first time I shaved, not only did I shave my legs, but I also shaved my forearms!! So I do remember my mother telling me that you weren't supposed to shave your arms :) I guess maybe I got confused and thought arms instead of armpits??

Anyway, thank you all for voting and thanks for all the advice!!

And I keep meaning to give a shout out to April at The Life of Me Plus Three! She just started her blog this month and flatteringly stated that I helped her make the decision :) Dig around in her archives 'cause she's got some really good posts there!

And I should also mention that Jo-Jo of A Mom's World of Madness and Blessings is hosting her very first giveaway! A shirt with your bloggy name on it from Embroidery Works! :) Sounds awesome!

Hey, have you seen that commercial for that new product that just rubs hair off?

I just saw it last night. I don't know if it works... but it might, and there wouldn't be any razor blades or electronis devices involved.

I am sure she will be thrilled...now hopefully she will keep up with it...once you start shaving you can't stop!

Let me know if you guys decide to try some of those nifty infomercial shaving gadgets. I'm dying for a review!

April said...

Thank you so much. That was very sweet of you.

I think I started shaving at 12. My daugther is 11 1/2 and hasn't asked...yet! I'm sure that day is right around the corner.
