Becoming my Mother....One Chin Hair at a Time

Every woman I know has at least a couple of chin hairs, and I'm no exception. In fact as I'm getting older I'm noticing them more frequently. My mother has always had the annoying habit of unconsciously picking at her chin hair while you are trying to have a conversation with her. It's so distracting, and she usually doesn't realize shes doing it. Last night, while talking with The Big Kid, he looked at me and said, "What are you doing? Stop it!" I immediately had this image in my mind of my mother picking her chin hairs. And I totally get why she does it. Once you feel one of those little spikes protruding from your chin you just can't leave it alone. This is happening to me more and more. Not only the chin hairs, but becoming my mother.


  1. OH yeah, I have turned into my mother even though I vowed not to. It's a good thing I love her. :)

  2. I do the chin hair thing too.... usually at work waiting for the computer to do stuff. I'm sure everyone in the office has noticed *blush*

  3. The thing I've found out about chin hair is that when you pluck one, three more emerge to see where it went. Sigh. Just more hairs to play with during conversations . . .
