In honor of Mother's Day, let's get vulnerable. I have facial hair.
It's just a fact of life and I wish I had known how to get rid of it earlier than I did. Maybe this is just what you're looking for, maybe you share my lot in life, or maybe you want to send this recommendation on to someone else.
When the time comes, I'll share the hair secrets with my daughter. Odds are not in her favor to escape this one. It's important to remember that the solution is easy, it's not embarrassing, it's part of life, it's something SO many women deal with, and it's not a big deal. So many things aren't a big deal. The simpler we make it for our kids, the simpler it is for them and us.
**I use Oil of Olay hair removal cream and usually pick it up from Target, but you can get an even better deal on Amazon.
Here's some simple steps:
1. It starts with rubbing wax on your upper lip to protect it from the cream.
2. Dab on the cream, leaving it for about 8-10 minutes.
3. Wipe everything off - hair and cream.
4. I rinse and wash my skin with cold water and soap after that and you're done.
Don't be embarrassed, just ask. And if you're really feeling the need for a handlebar mustache instead, then I will 100% support you.
MOM, thanks for letting me in on your secrets and directing me to this. You are so good at always thinking of other people, you're extremely humble and private, and yet everyone trusts you with their stories, their names, and their lives. It's because you're a really good listener. You are a peacemaker and a doer. You are a helper, a friend, and know how to multitask with the best of them. You sincerely love and dedicate your time to your family. I love your example of hard work, of perseverance when it's not fun to keep going, and of pushing through when time is the only thing that can heal. You "stroke when you don't want to stroke and kick with you don't want to kick." You are my #1 cheerleader and we survived all the younger times when I thought you didn't know anything, just to come out the other side realizing you knew everything. I'm your #1 cheerleader and will always fight on your side. Thank you for your love, your secret grandma powers over my sweet children who love you with their whole little souls, and you're undying dedication to making this world a better place. Happy Mother's Day!
I'll end on the wish that we all have a mustache free day filled with chocolate dipped strawberries.
But just in case you still need a dinner idea, check out my RED LENTIL CURRY with SWEET POTATO CUBES. It's a good one.
