A Right Of Passage

I don't know how I could of possibly forgotten to share this, but I did. Maybe it's because I'm in denial. Yep, I think that's why. *sniffle sniffle- as I wipe a tear*

My G.I. Joe shaved for the first time on Father's Day. What a Father's Day present for his dad. My Knight showed him how to shave properly. I wish I could of witnessed that moment between the two of them, but I was sleeping. I'm usually the last one to get up around here. I'm sure it wouldn't of meant that much had I been there clicking away with my camera. This is a moment that was meant for just the two of them. A moment for me to step back let them relish in the right of passage. I have had my moments with our Fair Maidens. I know I will have many more to come and so will my Knight. Be still my heart...

How nice that your husband was there for your son! My dad never taught me how to shave. I learned by trial and error!

I don't know too many men who've done what my Knight has done. I think openness and bonding is more acceptable now that it was even when I was younger. His dad didn't teach him how to shave either.

Sometimes I'm glad that times have changed, but there are times, I think the old school ways are better. Nothing is ever perfect. All we can do is be the best we can be. Not just for ourselves but for those around us.
