Stay Below Your Knees

Dear Claire,

When you're in grade seven or eight, you're probably going to want to start shaving your legs.  This is going to seem like the most fun and exciting thing in the world, and if you take after your dad, shaving is going to be a necessity!

While fun at first, shaving eventually becomes a tedious chore that you won't look forward to anymore.  So here's my advice:

When it comes to shaving your legs, stay below the knee.

That's right, don't try and shave your knees.  They're bumpy and lumpy and you'll never get a smooth shave.  The hair on your thighs is so fine and fair-coloured that you should just let it be.  Remember, even if you shave above your knees once, you're going to have to do it forever.

Lastly, once you're on your own don't cheap out and buy bargain razors.  They don't do a good job and you'll end up cutting yourself and getting razor burn.  Not attractive at all!  Buy a nice razor, use some shaving gel, and you'll always have beautiful, smooth legs.

Love Mom
