Liam’s World: Dad’s Deodorant



After Liam’s bath last night I couldn’t find him. I looked for him everywhere. Finally, when I came into our bathroom, I found him wearing his pajama bottoms with his pajama top in hand while putting Dean’s deodorant on under his armpits. I said, “Monkey, what are you doing? Only adults wear deodorant!”

He said, “Mom. Listen. I put on Dad’s deodorant every night so my armpits don’t smell. Last year when I was 4 my armpits smelled. So now I use it. I’m a big guy!”

He promptly put on his pajama top, walked up to me and raised his arm up for me to smell his pit. Then he gave me a thumbs-up and walked past me down the hall back to his room.

As I watched him do his best man strut back to his little man cave he suddenly appeared 18 years old to me. He’s growing up so fast. I remember wanting to do adult things like wear deodorant, shave my legs, and highlight my hair. The things I now dread maintaining as an adult. It’s funny how little ones are always in such a hurry to grow up while all of us adults think life passes too quickly!

What adult thing is your little one wanting to hurry up and do?

    My little one is now sixteen and I really do not want to think about what adult thing she might be wanting to do. OMG! I do remember when she shaved her legs for the first time at the age of 7. She shaved her legs and her arms.

    Liam is too cute. Bet he smells good :)

  • Jenny

    totally precious photo, what a great post. Liam shows such confidence and age beyond his years! My boys pay such close attention to every thing daddy does, such little men!

  • Manda Dieter

    It’s true to put on deodorant at night time!

    But you should be glad he’s not wanting to stink ! Good hygiene!

    I remember when I was little wanting to shave so much. Ugh now its so aweful!

  • Ashley Taylor

    Oh my gosh, cutest thing ever! My girls both cannot wait to drive! 😉 They are 4 and 8. And the 4 year-old constantly asks when she is going to have “boobies”! She and Liam would get along famously! 😉


  • Venus Banuelos

    Adorable!!! Such a cute story! You are such a great lil’ momma T and I am so impressed by your maternal enjoyment! You rock!

  • Shawndell Bumann

    My almost 5 year old puts deodorant on every morning…we even had to buy her her own (sensitive skin of course) because she doesn’t want to be a stinky girl:) She has us smell her arm pits too. I’m glad to know that mine is the only one.

  • Mandra Kerns

    My daughter is 2 years old and she loves when I put on my make-up. She sits right beside me and insists on me applying make-up to her face as well! I always pretend that I am glaming her up! I absolutely love the fact that I have a girly girl on my hands!

  • Emily Beebe

    Mine are two and four and my daughter (4) is a little mommy already! She helps my son go potty, put his shoes on…everything!!! She wants to be so grown up! I loooove it!


  • Jeanne Tutt

    omg that is so sweet! hey my mom never really discussed that with me and I got teased about it so if he’s so in tune with his body.. more power to him! maybe give him a little travel size in his bathroom for him!

  • Deneen Lotz

    Hi Tori

    Oh my gosh is that the cutest thing ever!!!

    My 9 year old little girl is wanting to shave her legs. She wants to be like her big sister but I think she is way too young. Kids are just so darn cute


  • Kristine Glover

    My son will be 5 in Sept. Whenever he sees my cleaning the bathroom he always wants to clean the toliets for me! Hopefully he’s still like that in 10 years!!

    My daughter is 3 and loves to put on make-up and get her nails painted.

    Both kids love putting on deodorant also…must be the age!

  • LilMamma

    You are an awesome Mom. You are recording all their activities and choose to share them with us. Remember all these things, in about 10 years they are going to want to hear these great stories over and over and over.

    Thank you…and God Bless

  • Sharon Coffini

    Cute story! It is amazing how much they want to be grown up and we wish we could be kids again 😉 My 5 yr old daughter is ALL about make up right now. She wants a huge make up kit and always gets into my make up. I bought her bright red lipstick (what she wanted as my colors were too plain for her ;-)) last week and she wears it everyday!LOL

  • Sharon Stanfield

    My son had to use deodrant when he turned 9 years old. So we got him his own deodrant and the rest is history.

  • lola

    Funny story, sometimes the kids see my monthly little friends in the package n ask what they are and i just say oh those r mommys diapers lol at cvs the other day, my oldest told some stranger hey you know my mommy still wears diapers lol mortifying lol Lola

  • Deb Jeffery

    My son (16) went on a camping trip with his aunt, uncle and cousins last weekend and ‘snuggled’ with two different girls. TWO. One of whom was later heard to complain that KC didn’t pay enough attention to her. Before last weekend he wasn’t interested in girls at all!

    I’m going to die.

  • Taras3

    My 5 1/2 year old boy wants to wear deodrant as well as my 4 year old daughter. I just let them. Never too early to teach good hygeine I guess. LOL.

  • Nikki P

    HAHAHA oh man my 5 year old and 2 1/2 year old boys are obsessed with whatever my husband is doing. (I feel left out sometimes, I want a little girl!!!) So one morning I found my 5 year old with his dad’s deoderant putting it under his pits and then handing it to his brother who proceeded to do the same. Toooo cute, i thought to myself, so I kept on spying on them. Well…next thing I know that older one starts pulling down his pants to deodorize his lil boy parts!!! The horror!!! Of course, I go in quickly to stop this and he tells me, “I need to keep my body fresh and clean mommy.” With my 2 1/2 yr old following with, “yeah mommy, shhesshh.” Oh man, it is going to be a long road!!! Where these kids got that, is beyond me!!!!

  • doreen porzio

    Love the story and the pic!! I have always said that Liam always comes up with the funniest things!…. He is quite the little comedian! You must have laughed your butt off when you first saw him, but then he suddenly was growing up WAY too Fast!! :(

    i and my lover had some misunderstanding 3 months ago and he left the house with no tress, there was no way i could contact him, i searched for him i could not find him, i was desperate to get him back, crying every hour became my duty, so when i told a friend what had happened, she told me she had similar problem but a spell caster helped her, so he directed me on how to contact this spell caster, she gave me this email address prophetharry@ymail.com, so i contacted prophet regarding my problem and he said he could help me, i gave him the necessary informations which he required for and after three days of his spell was casterd, my lover who left the house came back and confessed to me that he was having another affair with another girl, he fell on his knees while begging that I give him a second chance and also apologized never to cheat on me again, so we reconciled together . The scene was unbelievable, especially from him who is a such a proud man usually! thanks to prophetharry@ymail.com for giving me all I asked for, My spells seems to work in the most powerful way.

    I have a 12 year old (almost 13) and a 9 year old (almost 10). Both of them wear deoderant. My oldest started wearing it about a year ago. He was like “MOMMMM…. I have hair in my pitties!” “I was like ooo lemme see”. So I look and there is like nothing visible to the naked eye. lmao. So I tell him “Wow, that is amazing, now you gotta start taking care of your body like a young man.” They are just too cute during that stage in their lives. Embrace is as much as you can. Time slips so quickly through your fingers.

    I would just like to give some encouragement to all of you with a cheating partner and to those who need there lover back. My lover cheated on me The most hurtful experience was during a confrontation with the other woman when she came by my home looking for my boyfriend and looked surprised to see me there. I opened the door and asked what she wanted and she ignored me, i never knew My boyfriend has been having sex with her in our home, in our bed, My reaction was strange when she said that to me. I went and grabbed my boyfriend out of bed and shoved him out the front door. He was half asleep and very confused. I then went and grabbed his dirty clothes and threw them out on the porch with the two of them and told her that if she wanted him, she could have him, but she was taking his laundry too. I then called my friend and told her what had happened. She suggested I take the time to go through his phone. I found 3 other women and called them all. One he had lent my car too when he lied and told me it was in the shop. Another he had slept with when I was in the hospital recovering from sickness, The third was the one on my porch. They had all been seeing him continuously and he had told them we were only living together. The one on my porch didn’t even know I lived there. My ex told her I took off with another man and left all my stuff which is why she looked so shocked when I answered the door. i loved him so much i don’t know why my love for him is so strong, i now have to find a solution to this problem on how i am going to get him back and put his life to shape, when first contacted dr.marnish@yahoo.com to help me because i have heard many thing about his love spell, I was doubting not knowing that he was my last solution, when i gave him the chance to help me after 3 days my lover returned home to reconcile with me, we are back now I’m so happy.

    I honestly thought that my marriage was healthy. i loved my husband with all my heart. we was married 8 years and have a 3 yr old son. we bought a house 2 months ago. i told him i was pregnant…then he starting acting strange. he didn’t want me to keep the baby. one day i decided to tell him i could not go through with not having the baby (about 2 months pregnant), then he tells me he doesn’t love me anymore. 2 days later he tells me he cheated on me and wants a divorce. he has since (2 weeks) been really cruel, cussed at me, told me he was going to file kidnapping on me, and has generally acted like i am a doormat. the other woman even contacted me and told me she is going to be my children’s stepmother. i know that the affair was not very long because he met her 3 months ago. i don’t know what has happened to my husband. i cannot eat or sleep and only have a sister with minimal finances. i completely alone and scared. i needed help because i don’t know what to do. he filed for a divorce with a lawyer. so 3 days later a friend told me about a spell caster dr.marnish@yahoo.com, i contacted him and told him my problem and what i wanted and after 3 days he brought my husband back and made my husband a changed man, he is now a good man.

    My lover and I split up over two years ago and I was searching for help in the internet, I tried many different spells from almost every place locally as well as online and none of them worked, I almost gave up hope because I thought i will never see my lover again forever, before he left me, we were planing to get married in the future but all of a sudden he broke up from me until one day i saw some testimony about this powerful spell caster dr.marnish i emailed him and i asked him to help me bring back my lover and he casted a Retrieve A Lover Spell for me And after some days of casting of his spell, my lover returned back to me I’d like to say that i got a positive result from dr.marnish@yahoo.com, ever since i used his love spell, my lover have learned to appreciate me more and more day by day, and he doesn’t take me for granted.

    I was having a boyfriend. We were known for long time only through phone. Suddenly through some event we met together and we promised we will be together for ever. Both of us are married and not satisfied with the present spouse. But because of some misunderstanding I quarreled with him and humiliated him in front of his friends. After that I realized my mistake and apologized with him like anything. He told me he will try to forget everything. After that we met once and he promised me everything happened because of misunderstanding and now we will together for ever.But after that we never met each other. when we plan to meet some hindrance will happen then it will stop. Also no proper communication. But for me he is my everything. He is the only one who gave such a good satisfaction in my life. I wanted him. I wanted him to meet me, to have sex with me, love me everything. He is very good.and l know He was made for me. But some hindrance keep keeping us apart. i tried to get close to him but nothing was working out until one day i heard about a spell caster called Olorunoduduwaspiritualtemple@gmail.com, i decide to try his love spell and definitely it worked out perfectly for me, it never took time for the spell to start working, after some few days this guy i am loving came to me and wanted us to start dating, we are in love now, our lover is so tight that nothing can brings us apart, this love spell is wonderful Michelle!!
