Good grief.........

Payton just came in, fresh from his Saturday night bath and smelling of Lever 2000, and crawled up on the bed beside me.

"Mom" he asked "next time you go to Target, would you please get me some Axe body wash?"

"Why in the world do you need Axe body wash?" I responded.

"Because Mom [insert exaggerated eye rolling here] ALL of my friends use men's soap and I'm tired of smelling like a girl."

Well, who knew that your basic bar soap smelled "like a girl"? And how is it that 11-year old boys are talking about body wash and bar soap? And do I really want my sweet little boy using a body wash that comes in varieties with names like Touch, Essence, Phoenix, and Kilo?

My 7 yr old nephew requests Axe products. Yes, he has a 13 yr old brother.

welcome to the wonderful world of Axe! Jonah has PE everyday so it's a must for him...and I must admit, he does smell pretty good!

Wow...I'm just in awe that he THINKS about personal hygiene. I'd buy my 10 year old ANY soap he wanted if he had any interest at all in his own hygiene!

If it makes you feel any better..BOTH of my boys use it. Jake started last year when he went to Middle School & Blaine HAD to have it too. Funny!
