This will most likely be filed under TMI, but if I’m going to keep an honest account of the things we’re doing/want to do before having children, then I have to write about this next item: Getting rid of unwanted hair – forever! It’s hard enough keeping up with shaving and waxing when I don’t have kids. I’m worried that I’m going to turn into a hairy monster when I do have kids because I’ll obviously have even less time for personal grooming. So, thanks to a great recommendation from a friend, I took the plunge, forked over the money, and signed up for laser hair removal. The whole process will take about 8 months, but that means that by next summer – and well before there is a baby on the way – I’ll be hairless in selected areas.
I’ve only had one treatment so far, but I’m already seeing results. I was very surprised how fast, and really, pain-free the treatment was. I feel comfortable knowing that an RN is performing the procedure, and it’s much faster and less invasive than waxing.
Cost was the main reason that I never invested in laser hair removal before, but I calculated the ROI (since I no longer have to go to monthly waxings) and I’ll begin saving money in only a year. Woo-hoo!
Now, when the time comes, I won’t need to have the worry that many of my other friends with children have had: How do you remove all that hair before childbirth when you can’t see anything and you’re super sensitive, yet you don’t want to look like a hippie from 1968 while your legs are wide open for the world to peer into in the delivery room.
And yes, I did just write and share all of that. And no, I will not be adding any pictures to this post.
