"What's that smell?"
I began sniffing in every crevice of my body hoping that magically I'll find the culprit and we can call-off the dog search. In a typical day, a shower is somewhat of a luxury. You would think I was going to follow this sentence up with a story about my newborn baby and how I have no time to do anything. That's not going to happen.
Instead, my newborn is rather tall, talkative, and eight. And while in my eyes he will always be my baby, I can't help but tell you how much he is becoming a man.
The truth is, it is no longer I who smells like a high-school locker room because I choose to ignore all calls to the shower. My son is growing up, and with this comes all types of changes.
I sent out a tweet awhile ago about when is the appropriate time for a child to use deodorant. I received an immediate reply of, "When they start to smell!" Simple enough. We started using deodorant and haven't looked back.
Now that my son is a tween (not quite fighting my every word, not quite ready to let go of the footed pajamas) he is experiencing the "change". His voice is still high-pitched and his attention span is still the length of commercial break, but he has a lingering friend lying under his pits.
We were sent Degree Men Deodorant in the Arctic Edge scent. It's a rather pleasant scent. The deodorant is also made with Silver Ion Technology that help fight odor.
Unilever has created a site, DontFretTheSweat.com, as a resource for parents and children to utilize during this time of change. As noted on the front page, it's "Your glorious guide to sweat, kids and confidence."
Visit the site to discover what type of deodorant your child should be using, money-saving coupons, and tons of advice. There's even a pamphlet you can download for even more information.
