This morning my sleepy 5 year old Bud (aka Ty-Ty) came wandering in my room after waking up. In one hand he had his blanket and in the other he was holding deodorant.
Me - "Good morning bud! Why are you carrying deodorant?"
Bud - "Dad gave it to me!"
Me - "He did huh? Did he give it to you last night?"
Bud- "Yep he did! Do you want some?"
Me - "Nah, I've got my own. Did you sleep with that?"
Bud - "I did. . .I'm supposed to use it when my underarms get wet & stinky. . should I put some on now? I think I'm getting stinky. . Wanna smell? (lifting his underarm).
Me - "Mom doesn't want to smell. . but you can go ahead and put some on!"
Bud - "OK. The dog kind of stinks, should I put some on him too?"
Mom- "No, the dog is hairy & doesn't need deodorant."
Bud - "But Dad is hairy and he uses it?"
Mom - "Well dogs don't !"
As this conversation was going on, I was trying to think back to the night before and I remembered that Bud came into the room shirtless and as hubby went to pick him up I heard
him say "Yuck! That's sick! Your underarms are all wet!" and Bud proudly replied "Yep they are!. . I licked them!" I guess my hubby decided it was time to have the "deodorant conversation" with his son. I am just wishing that he hadn't given him the Right Guard Extreme Energy!
He requires NO help in the energy department! I'm the one that needs that stuff!
