Oh how foolish I was...

Today, while shaving my beasty legs, I had a flashback to the first time I was allowed to start shaving. This is the memory.

I was in the fourth grade and begged my Ma everyday to be able to shave my legs, after all if my sister Shalie who was then in the 6th grade was doing it, then I should be able to as well. Ma did not buy it and would always reject my request.

However, one evening my lil' sister Lacy was enjoying her bathtub a little too much and pooped in it! Hahaha, she was still in the potty training days. I guess my Ma REALLY did not want to clean it because she then made me the offer of a life time, "If you go clean Lacy's poop out of the bathtub, then I will let you shave your legs!" Of course, I jumped right on that! Little did I know then that I was making the biggest commitment in my life!

So I cleaned that mess right up, and then began shaving my legs. I remember feeling so cool and adult the next day at school, I made sure that every other girl was jealous of my super silky legs :)

I love thinking about my firsts of life, and this is definitley a good one!

I hate shaving my legs. I do it on Saturday afternoons so I'm ready for church. Once a week. Always.

Just like how I only wash my hair on Thursday nights. Once a week. Always.

Tell me again why I'm single?

Just don't decide to do your face. It turns to wiskers like a mans. I love it that you are blogging again.

haha! Great story, Nikki! It's funny how when we're young we want to shave our legs SO bad but then as we get older, we hate shaving and do it as little as possible. Especially in the winter!
