You smell of...

When he was younger, my boy had this slightly yucky habit of cleaning his dirty fingers on his hair. When he came back from playschool having had lunch there, he'd sometimes go for a nap and I would smell his hair and I could tell what he had eaten during the day.

At the time I meant to make a layout about it, but I never did. Until last week. I got a picture from a few months ago (when he was still using his soother). It isn't from the same time, but I don't mind.

There's some extra journaling behind the GROW card. And only now I noticed that the paper is upside down. Argghhh!

"You smell of...
sand and sun
lollipops and pasta
sweat and baby shampoo
milk and rice
ice cream and biscuits
earth and grass
dirty and soap."

I don't know that I'd have noticed the paper if you hadn't said - but actually it still works well for me, because it looks so much like a patterened duvet cover that he's lying on, so it's just as if you took the photo from the far side of the bed, if you follow.
Yuck, I don't like hair to smell of anything other than clean. If I've been doing a lot of cooking I sometimes need to wash it just to get the smell out.

Beautiful LO, Elisa. The story made me laugh, and reminded me of my brother when he was little. My Mum used to joke that he always got potato in his hair, even when we hadn't had potato for dinner!!!
