This smells like...
Chris has been working a lot of handyman jobs lately. Sometimes he can squeeze in three or four different homes in a week. At dinner last night he said, "All homes have a smell. It's not always bad, but they all have a smell. Obviously the homeowners can't smell their own home and it got me thinking... What do you think our house smells like?"
I smiled, "Hon, I spent a lot of high school and early college years babysitting. Every house with a diapered child smells exactly the same. Clean, dirty, doesn't matter. They always smell the same. I bet our house smells like that."
Confused, he asked, "What does it smell like?"
I set my fork down gingerly and said as gently as possible...
"Poop honey. Our house probably smells like poop."
I have a feeling Chris will refrain from inviting folks over until Cash is potty trained.
