It grows back right?

Having 2 boys, I never thought I would see the day when one of my children shaved more than I did. That day is here. 17 shaves his facial hair and now his legs. Yup, he did it. I never would have thunk it; that I'd have to give my son tips on shaving his legs but I did. I explained that the upkeep is a pain in the behind etc. He doesn't care, he'll look better.

In MY day (yes, I feel old now) hair was sexy. Now, apparently it's gross. Granted 17 was hairy but I thought it looked good on his legs all that black curly hair- who knew that it was disgusting? Not moi. For quite a while we were able to avoid and skirt around all the leg shaving but alas, now he is running track and they wear shorts and not a hair is to be seen otherwise he would be uncool- and well we all know we can't have that as a teen because it's the end of the world as we know it. After he shaved, he came to show me his calves. Look, ma don't they look great? Sweetie, they looked great before, now they look like mine did at your age. But if you're happy...

So, the short of the long of it is he shaved his legs. 'Nuf said.

Wow. I thought only swimmers shaved. That actually blows my mind that guys now consider their own leg hair to be gross.
