Head Sniffer

We were eating dinner last night when my eight-year-old son stopped, covered his nose with his hand, and pressed it against his head.

I looked at that kid.  "Bubba, what are you doing?"

"Trying to smell the inside of my head."

Okay.  "So,  how does the inside of your head smell?" I asked.

"It smells like oranges."

My husband laughed.  "No, Bubba. I think it smells like hamburgers because you're a meat head!"

Then my daughter put her two cents in.  "No.  I think it smells like rocks.  Because you have rocks in your  head!"

Bubba giggled.  "Mama, what does your head smell like?" 

"I don't know, Bubba.  I've never sniffed my head."

"Let me sniff, Mama."

I sat there patiently while he put his little nose by my head and sniffed.  "It smells like shampoo... And music notes...  And books."

Oh.  Well, I guess that's not a bad thing, is it?  I have to wonder though, how music notes and books smell.  I hope not too musty!

  2. I love the smell of books, so if your head has to smell like anything, that's a good thing for it to smell like, I think! I can't help but wonder what music notes smell like, too, though...hmm...

    1. Yeah. I tried sniffing one of my music pages, and it didn't smell like much of anything. ;)

  3. That's actually really poetic. Music notes and books? Pretty cool coming from an eight year old. You might have another writer in the family...

  8. These are such wonderful little peeks into your life. When your kids get older, a book with these would be perfect gifts for them.

    1. I'd like to do the blog to book thing for them. It's going to be a really big book, though!

  10. LOL. That was cute. Don't know what my head smells like. I've been feeling sick and can't smell anything right now.
