I am driving along last night and I hear from the backseat:
Belle: "Mommy, I need a shave."
Me: "What did you say?"
Belle: "I need a shave. My hairs are really long."
Me: "bwahhhh ha ha ha. You are too young to shave."
Belle: "I know but my hairs are really really long." As she is holding her leg close to her face.
"How do you shave anyway?"
Me: "You take the shave gel and rub it on your legs."
Belle: "What is shave gel and where is it?"
Me: "It is like a cream. You then rub the razor across your legs but you have to be careful you don't go sideways so you don't cut yourself. Are you going to try this when I am not looking?"
Belle: "NO. I don't want to cut myself. You have to shave me."
Me: "You are too young to shave. You can start shaving when you get hair under your armpits."
Belle: "I don't want hair under my armpits."
Me: "That is why you shave it off."
Belle: "Only boys should get hair under their armpits. Girls shouldn't have to."
Me thinking-Oh that is just the start of what girls have to endure that boys don't.
And I better keep an eye on the razor and shaving gel.
