I know you all are going to think I'm nuts but my stepson stinks. When he was younger he would refuse to bathe. If he did bathe it was very quickly and I swear he sat on the toliet with the tub running so we thought he was bathing. We did everything from bribing him to bathe to trying to ignore it. Is this common with boys?
ETA: I remember my younger brother being the same way when we were growing up.

it is a teenager thing, a horrible yucky phase they go through, travis loved baths as a kid and about 18 months ago just about had to have his head shaved, his scalp was sooooo gross he is starting to grow out of it now.......thank goodness
I am like the "Good Hygene Queen" around here ...it kinda goes along with me being a "germaphobe". My dentist actually told me to stop brushing my teeth so much because I was wearing them down...LOL I love to brush my teeth, like up to 7-8 times a day (I used to...I've cut back to 3-4 times a day. )
ANYHOO, imagine my surprise when the other day, after years of riding my DS's back about good dental care, I discovered after he left for school that his toothbrush was BONE DRY. OMG! I asked him about it later and he said he couldn't find the toothpaste (in the cabinet ) so he hadn't.......... brushed........his.......teeth.........for........ .3........days!!!!!!!!!! Can a person actually survive that long without brushing their teeth???!!!!
This is just one of some other areas he's becoming lazy about....I thought since he's into looking at girls, he'd want to look and smell nice...guess not...
