Humbled

No one can humble me like my son.

About 1/2 hour ago, after a long day of nearly 100 degree weather in which we did some nakey gardening and hammock construction together, my son, who is currently just over crotch-height to me, ran into me (face to crotch) accidentally, backed up, said, "Ew, goss!" and proceeded further with, "You ganina not smell good."

We promptly showered and I am happy to report that I am now fresh as a daisy.

Thanks, buddy. I can always count on you to be honest.

    1. If naked gardening is wrong, I don't want to be right.

  4. Haha, this is my first time here.I love this whole post. Naked gardening sounds amazing. My sweet sweet offspring recently told me i smelled like a fart, while we were at the chiropractor, while i was holding her so he could scan her back. we were all touching each other. i was mortified. and then i laughed. sometimes we stink i guess.

    Good laugh, bah humbug on the haters.

  7. thanks for sharing.

    It would have been great if you could have told him that our bodies have our own particular scent which can get stronger when we are working hard. That healthy bodies have healthy scents and there is nothing wrong with a strong smell from our underarms or vaginas.

    The ads tell us our vaginas should be clean, dry and odourless and this is not true, a clean vagina is neither dry nor odourless.

    1. Are you sure that I've not had this conversation with him? Or that I would not in the future? He's 2 1/2. It's a funny story. I didn't share every detail. Nor did I feel it was the time to go into great detail with him. Sometimes, teaching moments present themselves. Sometimes, I just get to laugh and enjoy his amusing nature.

    1. He's 2 1/2. Sometimes he calls my genitalia a penis. I use proper words with him. He'll catch on eventually. Otherwise, I just roll with it and allow him to amuse me.
