My aunt & I admitted to both being glad we didn't have girls so we didn't have to navigate hair removal with them after years of fighting the battle ourselves. This is an embarrassing admission, but a true one.
I love this, too. I was just talking with some mom friends about how annoyed we get when strangers compliment our husbands for being "good dads" just because they are out in public with their children. Or how they use the term "babysitting" in reference to dad time. It is an insult to my husband. My mom is always saying how "lucky" I am that my husband is such a "hands' on" dad. Is there anything more obnoxious than that?! Daddies get a rough go in this patriarchy too.

@mllemargaret I feel the same way! I say miracle drug. I took accutane in 1998 or 99 and I have never had breakouts again.
