Nate was actually able to come home at a decent hour tonight (6 pm!) so after dinner we took a walk around the neighborhood. It was good to get some fresh air after being cooped up in the house for most of the week because of pouring rain.
At the beginning of our walk, Nathan brings me something and asks a typical question – “What’s this, Mommy?”
I look at his hand and he is holding a pink Victoria’s Secret mini perfume tube. How on earth did he get that?! Oh yes. Remember my post about 2 weeks ago where he threw things out our open bedroom window?
So anyways I tell him to put it on the porch steps and I’ll throw it away when we come home.
We start walking. As Nathan is running past me at one point, I catch a distinct unmistakable whiff of perfume. Yes, the dear crazy child smells of Victoria’s Secret perfume. I’m not sure if he put the sample in his pocket or he just managed to get some on himself while he was inspecting it. But he did.
Poor Nate. He tries so hard to encourage Nathan to do boyish manly things. And Nathan does. But he also manages to get himself into other girly things out of sheer inevitable 5 year old curiosity that makes Nate cringe.
Tonight, I couldn’t help asking Nate “So which scent do you think your son was wearing – Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy or Victoria’s Secret Dream Angels?”
