There are a few things that I am obsessive about. Pretty feet, clean ears, trimmed finger and toenails, teeth brushing and showering with mass amounts of soap until everything is CLEAN.
I shower twice a day and brush my teeth probably 10 times.
I had my boys start wearing deodorant when they were in second grade. Not because they needed it, but because I wanted it to be a habit by the time they needed it. I’ve battled with Number One about this in the past. You can read about that HERE. Now I begin my battle with Number Two.
Number Two is now in fourth grade. He’s a smelly beast. Every morning he puts on deodorant and every afternoon he smells like a monkey. This morning I said “Come on, let’s go do a deodorant tutorial.. you are clearly doing something wrong”.
This is the deodorant he’s been using.
I made him take his shirt off so I could apply the deodorant liberally to his pits.. maybe he’s just not using enough? I opened the deodorant.
He’s never turned the knob. He has been (since God knows when) rubbing the dry top of the deodorant on his pits. Never made the gel come out. I guess that’s my fault? I guess I never explained the functionality of clear gel? Who’d have thought I had to?
