Puberty and electronic equipment

I love watching my 11 year old niece growing up. Maybe because it brings back so many memories about my own adolescence and puberty. Her stories, however, always seem so much more interesting. Like last week, while trying to shave her legs with her new electric razor she had an itch on her face. Without thinking she takes the hand she was using to shave her legs and scratches her face. As she scratches the itch the electric razor goes to town and shaves off one of her eyebrows. Yep, clear gone. We all learn lessons about our bodies during puberty…and some of us learn about circular blades as well. Becoming a woman is about shaving off un-wanted hair when your 11 and sixty-years later learning to draw it back in on your eyebrows. Unfortunately, she’s learning these lessons all at the same time.
