It’s time to shave your legs…..

As a busy mom of six, my showers often consist of 5 minutes of hair washing and body scrubbing, before jumping out to make sure no one has caught something on fire.  As a result, I rarely get time to shave my legs.  And sometimes, those days turn into weeks, and before I know it, I have full on Sasquatch legs.  I may, or may not, be sporting the Lady Lovelylocks legs right this moment.  But it’s alright, we’re not perfect as moms, and we all have those days where the beauty routine gets pushed to the back burner.  In case you aren’t sure if you’ve reached that limit, I’ve put together a list of the top 5 signs that it’s time.

#1 You’re outside in shorts and freak out because you think something is crawling on you.  Until you realize it’s the wind blowing the hair on your legs.

#2 It’s 100 degrees outside and you’re sweating it out in pants because you’re too hairy to dare put on a pair of shorts.

#3 Your kids make the comment that your legs are “furry.”

#4 You’re wearing a long skirt and you realize your leg hair is sticking straight out from the static.

#5 You get your leg hair caught in your boot zipper.

Still not sure it’s time?  Here’s a flowchart from Twice Shy that should help clear things up.
