Confession: Recently, I haven’t been taking daily showers. I’m on the every-other-day schedule and fine with it. My hair actually looks better when I don’t wash it every day, thank you very much. But apparently my toddler’s not so sure about my new grooming routine.
The other day she took a big whiff of my feet and promptly said, “P.U. Mommy’s feet ‘tink.'” As in stink. (Now this is also the child who finds it quite hilarious to blame her own “poots” on others. “Mommy poot,” she’ll say with an impish grin, knowing full well that I wasn’t the guilty party.)
If that wasn’t bad enough, later in the day (after I did, in fact, shower and was careful to scrub my odoriferous feet) she brought her toy pots over to my feet and started to pretend to wash them. Granted she used a plastic carrot for the soap, but I got the idea.
Cut me some slack, kiddo.
