Ahhh ... Smell That?

After reading about smells at Steph's blog http://teslaa.typepad.com, I started thinking about all the strange smells I enjoy and some that I will miss when all my "babies" are no longer babies.

Here they are:

* A dog's paws. They remind you of something ... Fritos, Doritos?

* An indoor swimming pool. Chlorine = clean.

* Gasoline. I remember trying to open some of the windows to the van as my dad filled up our full sized van that was detailed with duct tape. (So, not kidding. Remember: He is a Christian school teacher.)

*Babies feet. When our kids were under a year, my husband and I would actually call the other parent over for a smell if it was a particularly ripe day.

* The smell of Zach's room after he just wakes up from a nap. Is it his paci breath? Is it his sweet, little boy sweat? I don't know but I know I'll miss it.

* Popcorn. Anytime, anywhere it is popped, I have an instant craving for it.

Enjoy today and don't forget to stop and smell ...

This post is AWESOME! My sister and I always said Dog Paws smell like corn chips. And baby feet---nothing better! (I'm glad I'm not the only weird-o out there)

I could eat a 12 course meal, swear up and down that I couldn't eat another bite...and then smell popcorn and eat my words (and the popcorn, too, of course)

I love this post. I am going to miss that sweet baby breath sweaty smell in the morning, too.
