why can't they smell good all of the time?



one day five years ago i went into the nursery after church to get abbey. when i leaned down to pick her up, another little girl walked right in front of me and i got a big whiff of her hair. i was in love, instantly. i asked her mom why her hair smelled so great and my child's head just smelled like recess and she told me her secret: suave spray gel. yes, suave--dirt cheap and alot of bang for the buck.

i spray it quite liberally on my girl's hair when it is wet after bathing and i have found that it really doesn't work like gel--mostly it just makes their hair smell cleaner. while they are young, i like that i can use something inexpensive, because i know the dollars are gonna start adding up as they get older. my favorite scent is ocean breeze, and i find it at walmart or harmons. i just wish i could figure out how to keep them in saran wrap or a ziplock baggie of some sort so they would still smell good when they come home all sweaty from school--will someone please invent something for that? they would be a billionaire.

They can't smell that good all the time because they have not yet hit the age of no-longer-innocent. You know, when they start coifing for girls & boys. Scary. It is true woman dress to impress other woman. Right!?

some kids are smellier than others, and picking them up sometimes from school with a carload is like HOLY MOLY stinky

it's because of those dang elementary schools. When I open up Truman's closet I get an instant smell of elementary and I get sick to my stomach. Both Preston and I have told him that he smells like school so much that now he asks us if he can spray cologne so he doesn't stink.

Amen sister- When the doors of the bus fly open, delivering our children home after eight hours of school... there is not enough Lysol in the world that can cover that odor!
