She's Got Legs. She Knows How to Use Them.

Someone (namely K Belle - 10 years old) felt like her legs were way too hairy and decided to shave them without her parent's permission. Apparently her barely visible peach fuzz was too much for her so she would rather shave it, so that she can have black, prickly legs from now on. I only noticed because she sat next to me on the couch and she was scratching me with her legs. So, I asked her if she shaved her legs. To which she smiled and said yes. Boy, she just doesn't understand what she has just done.
Onto the next set of legs .... No, she has not been shot with  a BB gun or beaten with tiny spoons. Well, for one thing, La Petite Belle has learned how to ride a bike. Need I say anything else? You should see her elbows. Every day she comes home from school and she has a few new bruises. I told her that she needs to stop getting all those bruises because people might think we beat her. She said, "No, Mommy. I tell them it's from playing a lot of soccer," which sounds like a lie to me, since soccer was over a month ago. So, tomorrow she is staying inside! Maybe she needs some extra potassium or something. I'm not even sure if that's the right vitamin/mineral for that. Do you know? She takes a multi-vitamin. She looks like a leopard.

They really need to get it together if they're gonna have their Momma's good ole' legs. Don't even get me started on that topic! You know they're kind of famous down here. If you know me, you know what I'm talking about. They're really not that much to talk about, but apparently there's not much to talk about down here because they do get talked about. They just get me from point A to point B. So, here they are again in their native habitat with all their glory. (Please know that this is me being facetious.)

I am a natural blonde and so regret shaving my legs at 13. Ohhh, her younger daughter must bruise so easily, bless her heart.

When I was young, I couldn't wait to shave my legs and now I hate every bit of it. All those briuses. Poor little girl. My legs look a little like that. Long story and I may post about it one day.

I hate shaving...and I hate hairy legs...what a tough life I lead.

Glad to see a girl with bruised legs, my boys look the same way!

mmm hmm, yeah sure, you show off! Smokin' shoesies too- Have mercy!
Those bruises, wow, that looks ainful. My daughter would be so proud of herslef. She likes how it feels to push on her own bruises so that would give her many hours of fun. Shaving at ten? wow. I can't remember wehn I started shaving. You're right, those black pricklies are awful. I can see mine through the skin a little toward the ankle and that bugs me to no end. The worst has to be seeing ladies with panty hose on with long leg hairs. I've totally rambled on your blog. sorry *L*
