In a pleasant turn of events, we have a problem that actually falls into the normal range. Gavin’s going to be 14 this January and thanks to that little thing called puberty, he’s got a mustache.
Gavin’s very proud of his mustache and I understand that. However, I also sorta think it needs to be shaved.
With him starting school this coming week, we have to decide whether or not his new mustache will accompany him to school on Tuesday.
I don’t know how I feel about this.
On one hand, it really isn’t that big of a deal. On the other hand, I believe his particular mustache is commonly referred to as a porn-stache.
Anyway, Gavin was really excited to put a picture of his mustache on the site.
What are your rules about shaving? Is there an age that it’s okay to allow the facial hair to grow? Under a certain age, do you require your son to be clean shaven?
There is a part of me that also thinks that this is really a non-issue, especially in light of what’s going on with his health.
