The man scented shower stuff seems to have worked. He went from not showering in three days to taking two showers in one day. (I solve the towel problem by hanging them back up to dry, after all you are clean when you get out of the shower so you can use the same towel more than once). It was so cute in Wally World, as he went thru each of the bottles on the shelf and compared the smell until he found just the right one. (Axe - Kilo - lets hope there isn't total truth in advertising I don't need a bunch of 12 year old girls going gaga over my boy).

The shampoo aisle didn't seem to have any "man shampoo" however we did agree on a bottle of generic Pert Plus which while not manly apparently doesn't have the issue of being a flowerly fruity girl scent (his words not mine). No sooner did we get home than he announced he was taking a shower. Within minutes the whole place smelled quite strongly of Axe. Like I said it isn't a bad smell, just an overpowering one. But he was so happy, he even had to annouce that it took three times to get his hair to suds (that's what happens when you don't shampoo for three days), especially after swimming.

Later after dinner we did a fireworks thing at the fairgrounds for a bit, and when we came back he was bit muddy. I suggested he clean up a bit. He didn't like that idea, so I let it drop. Soon enough a couple hours later a I was dozing off Warren comes out of the bathroom (conviently across from my room) and anounces he decided to shower again, and doesn't his hair smell great. He wasn't that dirty, but I'll take mutliple showers a day over not showering for three days any time. Now if I can just get him to use the deoderant I bought him (yes it was man scented). On the down side, he's been talking about cologne, but at least I have a few years before I have to worry about him drowning in aftershave and such.

He is growing up so fast. The other day comming out of the grocery store I saw some girl smiling at him and giving him the once over. Okay so she couldn't have been more than 11 or 12 and in her defense she looked like a normal average kid, and didn't dress like a hootchie mama in training the way some girls do, but I am still not ready for other girls to be looking at my son. Can't I hold on a few more years before I have to let go? In the car on the way to Wal-mart I had mentioned to him, that girls (esp middle and high school girls) find B.O. a major turn off. He of course scoffed and poo pooed at me, but I could see the wheels spinning.

My baby is growing up so fast.

You Are Strawberry Ice Cream
A bit shy and sensitive, you are sweet to the core. You often find yourself on the outside looking in. Insightful and pensive, you really understand how the world works. You are most compatible with chocolate chip ice cream.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
