Out of the Mouths of Babes

The Ronald and I stopped by to see some of our grand-kiddos early yesterday evening. They wanted to show off their Halloween costumes before they went out Trick-or-Treating.

One of the youngest guys gave me lots of attention and hugs, which I of course accepted with glee, and gave back to him in return. As I leaned down toward his cute crew cut hair, I inhaled a lovely smelling shampoo.

I told him how wonderful his hair smelled and asked what kind of shampoo did his mom use on it? Since he's a little guy, I couldn't quite understand him the first time, and I thought he said, "Cake shampoo!"

So, I teased him a little and said, "Cake shampoo?? Your mom uses cake shampoo on your hair??" And he just fell over giggling. I said, "Oh, it's not called that? Please tell me again what you said."

Still giggling, he managed to look back up at me and said, "Pink shampoo!"

"Oh, pink shampoo," I said as I laughed along with him.

Cake, Pink....they both sounded a lot alike coming from his angelic little mouth.

I think that'll be one of those little stories I remember for a long time, and maybe, hopefully he will, too.


  1. You might want to talk to Shampoo Manufacturers. I am sure that there would be a market for Pink Cake Shampoo. And if there isn't there should be.

  2. Hey I use Febreeze hairspray, so why not cake shampoo. ids say the cutest things.

  3. Another vote for cake shampoo! With ice cream conditioner!

  4. A beautiful story. I bet the kids looked so cute and your little grandson sounds adorable.

I'm sorry, but I have to change my comment moderation, due to some strange and offensive comments that were left overnight.
