I did many “firsts” with my son and I think in a lot of ways we taught each other. Reading your comment made me realize the face shaving took place when he was twelve and he will be eighteen in six weeks. Where did the time go, our lifetime? There’s so many memories, and lessons, and both failures and achievements but I think in a sense even failing is an achievement because we learned, I learned.
