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!
