Kids say the darnest things! My son has one of the biggest heart's of most nearly 11 year old boys that I know. He is very tender hearted, he is very sensitive about a lot of things. But he is also one of the weirdest little odd balls that I know. He only wears a very few things and he is very very particular on what those things are and then if he gets new things that he likes, the "old" one's, he will no longer wear. So, I rarely buy him new clothes because he doesn't technically need them because its not like he will just add them to his other clothes. I wish that he would because it would make my life as a "laundress" just that much easier. If I do not wash his "favs", he will drag the dirty out of the dirty clothes hamper and wear them to school. In my defense, most mornings I realize this and battles ensue. I get very tired of fighting because he has every excuse from its not that dirty, it doesn't smell that bad, it doesn't have that much ketchup on it or, even worse, you can't really see the snot that I've got up and down on my sleeve! Its just gross and disgusting! But he's 10, he doesn't really care. Or so I thought!! This morning was no different than a lot. Here comes his happy little hiney, with his dirty smelly shirt on that he has worn and it might actually be day #3 and keep in mind, I am doing laundry most every day!! But its really hard to wash clothes while your child is wearing it ON their body!! Its a concept he hasn't grasped! So, battle ensues!! It goes something like this, "You smell Action!! You will be the stinky kid", so he tells me, "no Mom, I'm good. I am still the Sexy Beast because I am just covering up the smelly clothes with my new Axe body spray and deodarant that I got for Christmas". I about died because in the mornings, the child has been about to knock me over the with smell of Axe. I had no idea that this was part of the goal. And where did this Sexy Beast come from. Is that on the label somewhere???
