The smelly kid at school.

This has been a busy week for us. I didn't realize just how busy until I got my son up for school today.

"Time to get in the shower."
"Aww, mom, do I have to? I'm not dirty."

I think back to the last shower he wasn't yesterday. It wasn't Wednesday. I don't think it was Tuesday.

"You haven't showered since MONDAY. If you don't take a shower this morning, you'll be the smelliest kid in the third grade."

He continued to complain for a while, and I considered allowing him to be a social outcast for the day. He did eventually shower, but I doubt he brushed his teeth.

+1 WMP for not remembering the day your kid last washed. Um...eeew!

P.S. Remind him to use soap - mine always forget that part.
