From The Back Seat Of My Mini Van

Girl: Do you know what smells I like?

Diesel fuel, tar, gas, new baby and concrete.

Boy: Me too. I LOVE all those smells!

I chuckle, but wonder how on earth a sweet little baby gets thrown into the same mix as petroleum products?

And how come there isn't a 'New Baby Smell' air freshener I can hang from my rear-view mirror?

I'd certainly buy that before one that smelled like diesel fuel in order to appeal to my kids' little sniffer!


  1. What kind of smell does concrete have?

  2. I'm wondering the same thing. What does concrete smell like exactly??!! Apparantly it has some distinct smell according to my kids.

  3. Is your sweet little girl going to be working in road construction some day? :) very cute!

  4. I don't know about for your car, but Yankee used to make a candle that smelled like Baby Powder -- I used to love to smell it when I didn't have infants around to remind me of (part of) that new baby smell. ;)

  5. That is hysterical! Concrete, really? Wow. She's precocious!


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
