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!
