It's Been Years...literally!

How do you startle your wife of 13 years then make her laugh? You say you're going to go shave your head (a normal and common occurrence), allow the razor to take over and shave ALL the hair off of your head! I have not seen Joel without some sort of facial hair for years! It's a debate on how long it's been but I'm saying right around the time Noah was born was the last time - that's over 7 years! I'm still trying to get used to it and hear rumors that this look won't last. I had put Noah to bed while he was doing this and when I found Joel trying to impersonate a naked mole rat I went and got Noah out of bed and told him to go look at his dad. Noah came around the corner in the bathroom, looked at Joel, then started laughing. He went back to bed laughing. Oliver didn't see him until the next day when Joel got home from work. Noah and I had been telling Oliver all day long that Daddy looked different and didn't have his beard or mustache anymore. Ollie did really well when he saw Joel and it didn't seem to phase him much at all. Now, go answer the poll on the left side of our blog...

Wow!! I can't remember the last time Joel didn't have facial hair...I think it was when you were pregnant w/ Noah and we celebrated Joel's big 3-0 w/ his new grill.
Cool!! :)

O.k., I just went through my scrapbook and Joel DID have facial hair at his 30th bday. Geesh! I can't tell you the last time...must be over 10 years.
