In which I see the future...

MasterM is considering growing a beard.

I am not sure how I feel about this.

Designer Stubble I can cope with...

but a Beard?
A Beard!!

Let me tell you straight
I am WAY TOO YOUNG
to be the mother
of a man
with a beard.

Yes, and he will INSTANTLY transform into a 70-year-old man. Chances are, he'll start sporting a monocle, too. And smoking a pipe. Enjoy!

I can only speak as a dauhter of a beardie and a wife of one too - I have to say I like them - however I have never seen my Father or dearly beloved without one - I have threatened divorce (Just as my Mother did) if he ever shaves it off.
Love Helen

oh no! Please tell MasterM to come to his senses and not go down the Bearded-Youth route.
In my humble opinion it is not a good look.
Although one positive thing that can be said about a beard is that you CAN SHAVE IT OFF.
Good luck MrsM xxx

At least it is MasterM not MissM - one has to be thankful for small mercies

Son no. 2 has a very full beard which took a lot of getting used to. The other three all sport designer stubble depending on how often they can be bothered to shave. I just remember their little soft baby faces...

Hear hear! as a mother of a 12, almost 13, year old who is just starting to get a tad fluffy along his top lip I find the concept fascinating although I fear I shall miss his soft baby skin as things develop - and your husband does have a point about the right candidate!

Well, it depends what sort of beard he is considering ... I once went out with someone who tried to grow a beard but it came in all patchy and he looked like he had mange - never a good look on a nineteen year old. (Can you tell it was a less than amicable breakup?!)

Some of the beards sported by the youth of today are quite lovely.

Some are not.

Stubble seems like a good compromise.

James grew a beard, but got fed up with people calling him Jesus (he had long hair at the time). It saved us a fortune in razor blades,while it lasted.

Oh no, he is so handsome the way he is. Stubble would look ok but not a beard. :)

Ahhh, yes. All young men go through the phase, don't they? My younger brother and BIL went through it a few years back. Thankfully, it didn't last. (My BIL got so tired of hearing it looked like he had a rat taped to his chin.)Have fun it with my friend! (And get LOTS of pics!!:)

I've just enjoyed my Alice fix, three posts to catch up on and how I have enjoyed them. I am still smiling at the thought of Mr M's tired fingers.

As for beards: I am married to a bearded man, every five years or so he frightens me to death my shaving it off, although come to think of it, I think perhaps he does that to make me laugh! I believe he has sported a beard since he was about 19, so be warned....

All men want to grow a beard at least once in their lifetime...just to prove it can be done.

Personally, I'd prefer not to have a full, bushy moustache after not plucking for a week.

But we can't have everything, can we?

Dragonfly said...

Alice, I'm laughing SO hard!

I think it must be something that is to be experienced in every man's life!

Although, I must confess, that I am rather partial to a man with a beard!

peppermintpatcher said...

Will it be a beard or one of those artistic little stripes of hair, or long sideburns that don't quite meet, or a circle right under his chin?

These are the things that I have seen on young people of late. I'm certain that they take a lot of maintaining...

Oh good gracious NO!
