and mil freaked out. apparently now i'm the worse mom on the planet. like she literally called me the worse mom.

i was using my electric razor to get ready to head out to the pool and dd comes in to talk to me. she begs me (for the gazillionth time) to shave hers. i just did the bottoms of her legs. i didn't see a big deal. anyway, so we get to mil's house to swim and dd was so excited about her freshly shorned legs she ran to mil and told her. i didn't tell her not to or anything bc i really didn't think it was an issue...she is my kid after all. but now i gotta deal with this shit. ugh

Thats better than not doing it and her trying it herself without being taught how and cutting herself on accident...

Thats what i did when i was 7 or 8 lol

I don't think it's a big deal. Maybe I'm a "bad mom" too, but my oldest does pageants and I have shaved her for them since she was 6 or so

My niece's' legs had been shaven prior to me getting custody of her. The pedi was concerned about sexual abuse, the shaved legs were a red flag. :-/

My youngest started shaving at 7, she had dark leg hairs and felt self conscious about it. I don't see the big deal.
