Boys are Gross!!

Let's start at the beginning...I have a two year old son that I love dearly but seriously boys are gross. For about two days there was this smell that I could not wash away from him. I bathed him about three times a day and wiped him with baby wipes all day. Nothing could get rid of the smell so we gave in and took him to the doctor. So what are you supposed to say when the nurse asks why you need the appointment? 'My kid stinks, please help!!' After she stopped laughing at me I had my appointment. Fast forward to the appointment, the doctor checks his ears as a precaution then on to the nose. And the words I feared the most came next 'FOREIGN OBJECT'. Ewwwwwwwwwwww!!! He wasn't sure how long it had been up there but that's what was causing the smell. I promised my little one a lollipop if he let the Dr. look up his nose, which he was more than happy to oblige. Believe me I wanted to look away but since my husband wasn't there I knew I had to look because he was going to ask a thousand questions. So out came a skinny piece of blue foam and up came a bit of my lunch. I have been warned this is the first of many of these escapades!

Your story made me laugh so hard! When my sister in law was little, she did the same thing. They, also, couldn't figure out what the smell was!!! Too funny.
