cosmic blunder

Is 9 too early for adolescence to start? Because I swear I have a teenage girl on my hands. SHE WANTS TO SHAVE HER LEGS, PEOPLE. She has ATTITUDE. More so than usual. I swear she rolled her eyes at me this morning as we both faught for mirror space in the bathroom.

Thanks to the great "cosmic blunder" brought about by my waiting until the age of 36 to give birth, I figure Anna's puberty and my menopause will converge with all the spectacular spark-throwing, sulfer-stench of two planets colliding.

Poor, poor David. Dude is going to be in the midst of a shit-storm of hormones here in about 3 years, and it's not going to be pretty.

RUN, DAVID, RUN !

That sounds terrible and I can't imagine what that house is going to be like. It does seem that Anna is already IN puberty----wanting to shave her legs ! What is there to shave ? !!! It can't even be fuzz yet .

Uhhh... I shaved my legs for the first time when I was 10. I think it's pretty normal, especially when it's the media so much.

As for the hormones, uhh... GOOD LUCK!

Both my daughters started shaving their legs around 10. Actually, I think Andrea was 9.

Sorry, but now it all begins...


Buuaaahhhaaaaaa.....
