On Saturday me and my little man were headed home from an activity when he said "mom I have something to tell you". In my mind I was thinking, Oh Lord what happened in school on Friday that he forgot to tell me. After I exhaled, he finally revealed he had a crush on his math classmate. I think my response was ok, what do you say next? This revelation brought on a slight makeover for my little man.
When I went upstairs on Saturday evening the smell smacked me in the face-my little man had doused himself with cologne. I demanded he jump in the shower, whew! On Monday I thought we were through with the cologne, what was I thinking? His crush was obviously going to be in school. He did a quick spritz of cologne before heading out to the bus. Next, he rinsed with mouthwash. This was interesting in light of the fact I have a hard time getting this kid to brush his teeth. I need to thank his crush and I'm sure his teeth are happy. Did any of the kids on the bus stop notice the cologne and his sparkling teeth? and if so what were they thinking?
I'm thinking what is next? shaving and then aftershave? I have to giggle inside to see him transform into this new person, but then I cringe when I think about what is down the road!
