I have to know...do moms of teenage girls get asked to smell clothes? I don't mean "Ooooh, this perfume is delightful Mom, smell it!" I mean "This shirt has been in my bed for 3 days, does it stink too much to wear?"
I try to be a supportive mom you know, but really... When you say "Does this smell bad?", I'm already bracing for the worst, and wondering...."Was this in the job description when I was hired?"
Have any of you watched the Malcolm in the Middle episode where the mom imagines she has all daughters instead of sons? The boys are kicking and fighting in the back seat of the van, on their way to get some new underwear or something...and then the mom sees her imaginary daughters...all getting along, brushing each other's hair, delighting in the fact that they are going shopping at the mall.
Do you moms of girls have rides in the car that are pleasant, cheerful and fresh-smelling, while I ride with armpit farts and dirty socks and rowing shirts stuffed under the seats?
Don't get me wrong, I adore my boys, but sometimes...I just wonder how the other half lives...
