Shaving Choices

Hey Neighbors!

So glad you came out today to visit At the Fence.  I have a question, do any of you have any teenage boys that are starting to grow a beard or mustache?  Do they want to shave or allow it to grow?  I have two sons trying to decide the shaving dilemma.  My 18 year old has pretty much decided to go clean shaven, although every once in a while he is not sure.  My 16 year old on the other hand is truly undecided.  He starts to grow the mustache, and then shaves it off.  A few days later, he starts growing it again.  His dad has asked him to decide one way or the other.  So we aren't constantly yoyoing back and forth. 

Personally I think he would look nice with a mustache.  It looks good as it is starting to come in.  I don't think he is ready for a beard yet. It is not coming in even there yet.  Their dad has a beard and mustache, and I love it.  The boys are still trying to make their own choices and decisions.  It's funny because they are so close in age that they were always dressing alike and now they each try to be a little different on purpose.  They try to have their hair cut a little differently, and I think they will probably be divided on the beard and mustache issue for awhile. 

I also think part of the issue is having to shave everyday.  My 16 year old isn't sure that he really wants to shave everyday, but if he doesn't he has the start of a mustache again.  Oh the trials of growing up!  Have some advice neighbors?  Please leave a comment with your opinions.

I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog about shaving and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.

same here with my 17 year old grandson. Big guy is undecided.. his cheeks look like peach fuzz.. he needs to shave every other day since he doesn't care to shave. I let him know he is setting a good example with his fellow scouts and keeping his face shaved. Don't have any advice for ya.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June.
