About Me

My photo
I am a SAHM of 3 and a wife of one. I started a blog to just bitch about life and now our youngest son is very sick I want to hear from other families going thru this and support eachother. He has SBS secondary to NEC with only 50 cm proximal jejunum and a 3 cm segment of terminal ileum. He is TPN dependent. He is a tough little 6 lb, 3 month old! Keeping my mind from turning to mush, Scentsy was introduced to me and I'm very thankful. The wonderful people in this community has changed my life. Even so, chaos in our house is a daily adventure. Some days, alright most days.. I take things minute by minute. To get through this bumpy road called 'life' I need my husband Jerad and my kids, my son Jordan 15, and my daughter Jaycee who is 11, and my son Jaxon is 3 months...I say it how it is... So I will say this.... "If you don't like what you are reading, you have the choice to leave my page. Nice, bitchy, raging lunitic, loving.. that's me! I admit I swear like a sailor, I may have different religious beliefs, I hate brussel sprouts with a passion.. these are all ways to describe ME.. I love making new friends but I will not 'pretend' to be someone I'm not just for their sake.

To shave or not to shave? That is the question.....

     When should you allow your daughter to shave her legs?  Jaycee wants to start shaving, she is almost 11 yrs old.  Her hair is very light blonde so I want her to wait, beings this IS a life long commitment once you start.  "But mom my friends are shaving...", this is her argument.  Her other statement was, "I'm in double digits now, I'm old enough!"  I told her let's talk and assess this situation further.  This morning she came downstairs so excited, with her smile just beaming.  She said, "Mom, I still want to shave my legs, but for now I just stuck with shaving my arms".  "Why in the world would you shave your arms?", was my response.  She said, "Feel how smooth... I did have quite a bit of hair ya know mom".  I said, "It's okay to have hair on your arms, everyone does".  So now I'm not only dealing with shaving of the legs, now my dilemma includes arms too!

  3. New follower from Bloggy Moms! Wow, I didn't have hair until I was a freshman and didn't get my period til then. Times are sure different now. Girls want to grow up so fast and if a friend starts doing something they want to follow. I have a friend whose 10 year old got her period and started shaving, eek!

    I sure hope my daughter is a lot older than this!

  4. Hi there. New follower here!

    I remember my mother buying me a Remington electric shaver, at only 10 years of age, and back then, 10 was like, ummm 5 now, maybe less? lol.

    Anyhow, I wanted no part of it. I guess had I got made fun of for having hairy legs, it would have been different, but around 13 or 14, is when I started, I believe.

    I can't begin to imagine getting a period at 10, though it does happen. I got mine at 15, because I was active. I hope the same for my girls, because the hormones of 4 of us ladies in one home...FORGET ABOUT IT, LOL

  5. This story reminds me of my not-so-happy days with my 2 daughters who were born with hairy arms and legs(inherited from me). When they grew to be teens and their friends began to notice, they started to ask me many "why's" the nth times. I had always quick answers then. But when they began to ask me "how" to get rid of the hair, the problem really started. The rest of my story has no end. The yes-and-no to shaving continues to this day! Hahaha!
