Many people struggle to grow a beard, and there’s no need to be ashamed.
Now, there’s an easy way to solve the problem thanks to a creative little kid from East Yorkshire.
Young Riley, seven, decided to copy his 33-year-old father, Rob Gilmour’s looks. The only challenge was to grow a beard, which is something most schoolchildren tend to struggle with.
Rob and his wife Jennifer, 31, didn’t know that what was going on upstairs after Riley had his dinner and went to play in his bedroom.
When they cleared the dinner table, their son came jumping into the room in hysterics, boasting: “I’m just like Daddy!”
After seeing him Rob and Jennifer, from Hull, realized that Riley had drawn himself a beard that perfectly matched his father’s.
Thankfully, the parents realized he hadn’t used permanent marker but had simply drawn it from Jennifer’s makeup eyeliner.
Mum-of-three Jennifer, an author, said: “Riley had just finished tea and went up to his bedroom to play.
We were clearing up the dishes and he came down just minutes later, saying ‘I’m just like daddy’ absolutely laughing his head off.As soon as I looked at him I could see that he had copied Rob’s beard perfectly – but I was immediately worried it was a permanent marker and wondering how I’d explain that to school!”
“Luckily I realized that he had just used one of my eyeliners that he had taken from my bedroom – which I wasn’t too happy with, but at least it wasn’t permanent.
“Finally I had a moment to be able to laugh at the whole situation and just marched him upstairs and spent 15 minutes extensively scrubbing his face.”
Before washing it off, Jennifer decided to take some photos to remember the funny moment.
She continued: “Everyone can’t help but laugh at the photos – especially due to Riley’s proud expression on his face!
“Now it’s over with, I’m so glad it happened – it was definitely worth the giggles and is something we won’t forget in a hurry.
“I also loved how he did it to be like his daddy, it made it a lot cuter and less mischievous!
“But I do make sure I hide my eyeliner now, just so it doesn’t happen again!”
