Smells Like Geriatric Spirit

What could happen when you tell your hubby to go put one of your kids in the bath? They could end up smelling like a freshly-shaved eldery gentleman! LOL

Last night, while I got Pojke (Swedish for "little boy" aka Viking #2) ready for bed, Da Hubby was to put Flicka ("little girl" aka Viking #1) in the bath.

On Friday, I had half-listened (my first mistake) when Da Hubby told me that he had clean out/off his desk/cubicle at work. He had found this can of shaving cream that one of the other guys in his shop had tried but didn't like. "Maybe Flicka can use it in the tub?" I thought that's fine...we've often used a handful to make a spot on the tub wall for her to draw and get her fingers into.

You can probably see where this is going...Da Hubby gave her the WHOLE CAN and walked out of the bathroom to let her play! LOL After getting Pojke settled, I went to check on her. There were large quantities of shaving cream EVERYWHERE: walls, tub, shower curtain, head, back, behind, face, EVERYWHERE. Da Hubby laughed and commented "well, now I know what an entire can of shaving cream looks like!" The smell was a little overpowering at the time but I blew it off on the immediate quantity and the warm, steamy room. But - no!

After a rinsing shower, I could still smell it. As I kissed her good night - I could STILL smell the shaving cream. Woke heru p this morning...yep, smell's still there!

The one good side - it made her hair *really* soft! LOL
