Today as we were all snuggling in bed watching General Conference, Hunter squeezed up next to me and put his arm around my shoulders. After a while I noticed a little something -- something odoriferous. First I made sure it was not coming from me and then I took a little snif near Hunter's underarm.
"Oh, Hunter," I said, "It looks like you are becoming a teenager."
"Really mom? How?" Hunter asked.
"Well, you are starting to smell like a teenager under your arms. It is time to get you some deodorant."
Fast forward about 4 hours later.
"Mom, you know what, I really am becoming a man. I took a little sniff under my arm and I smell like a man," said Hunter.
So, after a quick shower we had a little discussion of deodorant and I showed him how to put it on. He giggled and we had a great son-mom moment. So, what's next? Girls, shaving, driving, dating -- holy cow!!!! Can't we just slow time so I can keep him little for just a while longer? Isn't he just so handsome?
