Fuzzy

Yesterday, I was standing outside in the front walkway, waiting for my husband to come home from work.
I do that sometimes, because I miss him all day long and by the time 4 o’clock rolls around, I can not WAIT to see him and kiss his grubby face.
So, I’m standing out there, waiting and my oldest son, Andrew, walks out to talk to me. As he’s talking, I am drawn to his upper lip.
“Could it be?” I think to myself as I lean in a little closer.
“OH MY GOD, IT IS!”
He’s talking and I don’t hear a word he’s saying.
I interrupt him.
“ANDREW JOSIAH, YOU ARE GROWING A MUSTACHE. DID YOU KNOW THAT?”
“No I’m not!”
“Yes, you are. OH MY GOD.”
My son has A FUZZSTACHE!
As soon as Tony pulled up, I grabbed him by the arm and said “Look at Andrew’s lip and tell me if you see what I see.”
He looked. Closer.
“HA! He’s starting to grow a little mustache.”
“CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? OUR BABY HAS FACIAL HAIR!”
I suppose I shouldn’t be so shocked, considering he’s had Hairy balls since 2002.
But I am. Totally shocked, happy, excited because MY BOY IS GROWING UP! Sad, because MY BOY IS GROWING UP!
I was obsessed with it all night.
“How’s your ‘stache?”
“Stop it mom.”
“Hey, mom, do you know what my friend said while we were playing basketball yesterday?”
“Um, nice stache?”
“MOM!”
That’s all I talked about all night.
His Fuzzstache.
Because that’s a really big deal. I can’t get over it. I want to take a picture of it, but he won’t let me. Something about it being “embarassing”. Whatever.
The truth is, the older he gets, the more I respect his “privacy”. I don’t write a lot of things I want to write about him on here anymore (except to mention HAIRY BALLS EVERY CHANCE I GET) because I feel akward doing it now that he’s entering his “Teens.”
That’s right, in less than 2 months, “First baby will be thirteen years old.
And he will have the facial hair to prove it.

    DUDE. He’s so going to kill you when he’s 15 and his friends find your blog and find out all about his hairy balls.
    I wish I could be there for that. *pops corn*

    That would freak me out entirely. My little sister is gonna be 30 next month and that freaks me out…but to have a son and see a fuzzstache! Freak.Out.

    Yep, Evan is right there with him. He turns 13 in a week. Little fuzzstache and all…don’t tell him I said so, but he has HAIRY BALLS too :) Oh God he’d DIE if he knew I was writing this down!!! ROFLMAO!

    LOL Great story! Picturing you irritating the crap out of him all last night is what cracked me up the most. I can see myself being totally irritating like that (in the most funnest of fun ways, of course!).

    OMG. *LMAO* Well, my son seems to have inherited his daddy’s relative hairlessness – took K until he was 25 to finally get his ‘stache. So I’ve a while to wait.
    But this weekend a GIRL asked him OUT! he’s ONLY 13!!!
    Harumph. It’s AWFUL. But man – I’d so be taking pictures of the ‘stache on the sly! *hahahah*

    My sister told me the other day that both my nephews (16 and 13) have been SHAVING for TWO YEARS. Fine, so the older one’s been shaving since he was 14. But that means the younger one’s been shaving since he was 11! What happened to the little squeezie kid who used to put spaghetti in his hair?
    AND WHY AM I SO OLD NOW?!

    Somehow my son starting to grow a ‘stache didn’t affect me as much as my daughter starting to grow her boobs. Maybe it’s the thought that she’s becoming a fertile being that’s freaking me out….

    Buy him a shaver for his birthday! It’s coming up no?
    a) he’ll think it’s awesome cause you know, it means he’s older
    and
    b) no more stache!!

    Wait until he becomes a father. UGH!!!!!!!
    I remember the hairy ball discovery on Cam, we were on vacation when he was about 11. I walked in as he was putting his bathing suit on.
    Yeah, I had to work the words “hairy” and “balls” for the rest of the night. heh. I am all 12 yr old boy like that.
