Little Brother is just so desperate to be a Big Kid. As the youngest in a family with a wide age spread, that’s not such a shocker.

For at least a year he’s been asking me to buy him Axe. Since he’s not one to be restrained in his use of anything, there was no way I was going to let him get anything he could liberally spray all over himself.

But just before Easter I was in CVS and I noticed that Axe makes shampoo and body wash. I’m all about encouraging cleanliness, so I bought him a bottle of shampoo and tucked it in his Easter basket. He’s been a happily clean kid for almost two months now.

This morning after his shower, he came over to me and asked, “How do I smell?”

Me:  “Um, you smell like Axe.”

LB:  “Yeah. I’m going to get all the girls.”

Me:  “Oh really?”

LB:  “Yeah. That’s what happens when you use Axe. Girls really like it.”

Me:  “Not this girl.”

LB:  “You don’t have to like it. You already have a husband.”
