Maybe you can get the baby to shave too.

Congradulations! Now you have skin as smooth as your baby's bottom
Do you like it better without the beard?

Well I am still getting used to it. I never found my beard to be itchy or hot so I am not finding any benefit like that yet.

I go through phases with my beard. I get sick and tired of shaving so I grow a beard. Then I eventually need a change again so off it comes. Right now I am enjoying feeling the smooth skin. It is also fun seeing the reastion of my co-workers when they see me for the first time without it.

How did Rachel react, GB? That was the first time she's seen you beard-less, right?

One of my brothers goes through his spurts and grows his and then will shave it off. I only see him twice a year (he lives out of state) so I never know which one will show up...... . He's handsome either way but I do think he looks younger without it.

Yeah I had the beard when she was born. I had planned on keeping it until she was at least old enough to converse, but I just couldn't hold out.

She was asleep when I did it so when she woke up I went into her room to get her. She looked at me funny for about a half second, but then looked at me normal.

I am sure it was just a coincidence, but Rachel and I had a special bonding day yesterday. I am sure it had nothing to do with the beard, but you never do know.

I have reverted to a very maintained pseudo beard for the summer. I hate razor burn, it burns like H*** and makes my neck look like I was attacked by a wild animal.

Yeah I hate razor burn too and I also can't stand shaving every day. My beard grows so fast that I have 5 o'clock shadow by about 11am lol.

Men never shock me when they grow their beards. Obviously, because they're growing them so slowly I hardly notice how much their looks are changing. I think it would be nice if you guys clipped them slowly too instead of shaving them all off in one sitting just for shock value.
