Oh! Did I forget to mention that you are completely potty-trained? Right after your 3rd birthday we went cold turkey on pull-ups and three days later you were done. Woo hoo!
We have commemorated this occasion by banishing the bathroom smells from your room. We emptied your diaper pail, washed your sheets and comforter, washed all your laundry, vacuumed and even installed a new bed. Your room is transformed and fit for the big boy you are now.
And yet…it still smells unmistakably of boy. Some permanent combination of feet and men’s room.
How is that possible?? Where is that coming from? What haven’t I cleaned? Is this just ‘boys room smell’? Will I never be rid of it??
Realization: My God…it’s only going to get more pungent as you grow…isn’t it? :: shudder::
