Good Morning CruiseMates!
Guess what's new? Not much really, but that's OK!
My kiddos have been feverishly cleaning their rooms due to the fact that they are having a long awaited sleep over Saturday night and I have thrown down the gauntlet. CLEAN HOUSE OR NO SLEEPOVER! My son and I have been discussing the arrival of his "manly scent" and how excited he is to have entered into this new rite of passage. Me on the other hand...I'm not so excited lol. Part of cleaning up his room involved removal of all his toys from his bed. So once the actual bed was exposed, he announced to me... "hey Mom guess what? My sheets and blankets smell just like my new "manly scent" and a big smile beamed from his face. He's so proud!
. Naturally, I have lots more laundry to do... Oh joy! I remember when my brothers both acquired the same aroma... there was a brown cloud that wafted out of their bedrooms every time someone dared to open the door. It was kind of a cross between B.O. and the smell of a wet dog.
I explained to d/s that to whom much is given, much is required. So now that he has recieved "the gift" of the "manly scent", he will need to bathe a bit more frequently, apply some deodorant and we'll be changing his sheets more frequently... So no more toys in the bed. He is not happy about that aspect, whatsoever. I have never seen a kid so proud of the fact that he is now aware he smells.
So aside from that. Everything here is peachy keen. D/H has been in Pittsburgh since Sunday and he should be home late tonight. He is looking forward to a 3 day weekend since he'll be off Friday.
Not much on the agenda for today aside from cleaning and the usual stuff. Hope you all have a great weekend. Sending more prayers and positive thoughts Todd and Fran's way. I hope they get some answers soon!
