Stubble

Last night I was still at my sister's with her kids and Thomas. I was getting them all ready for bed. Thomas and Matt had a tub together and John took a shower. He's getting pretty independent now and favors taking a shower over a bath. He does everything himself but just has you get the water ready for him. So here I am, sitting on the edge of the tub with my hand in the water waiting for it to hit just the right temperature. Then out of no where John says to me, with the straightest face ever "um, Mary............do you think I need to shave tonight?" I did everything I could to compose myself. I turned away for a sec and turned back. And he says "Really, I do shave." Out of the corner of my eye I see a toy/pretend razor on the side of the tub with Star Wars shaving cream/soap. With a straight face as serious as I could, I said "No, I don't think you need to tonight. You look good." He replied "Okay."
John is only 7 and a 1/2.
