It is Saturday night and I have each of the kids take a shower before bedtime. This child of mine comes out of the shower all wet and wrapped in a towel and wants to snuggle on my bed. As I hold him on my lap, I notice that his hair - though wet, does not smell clean.
Me: Calvin, did you wash your hair with shampoo?
Calvin: I got it wet and I think some soap got on it.
Me: Uh, Calvin, that is not good enough - you need to wash your hair with shampoo and get it really clean!
Calvin: (sitting up to look at me in the eyes) Mom, I have not used shampoo since we left Minnesota.
Just a reminder - we left Minnesota in June of 2011.
