My son, the metrosexual.....

Does anyone still use that term?? Can you really apply it to a three year old? These are the questions today.

My Tuc. He is a sweetheart. He loves him some nail polish....and hair gel......and "wip bomb"....and "wotion". He is always asking his momma to lotion his back and feet and hands. Today, we even used the cuticle oil. He adores bubble baths, and always comes to me afterwards and says, "smell my hair, it smells like strawberries". He likes to "powder his butt".

He is always searching for the pants, with pockets....this child refuses to wear sweatpants. He likes his clothes to match (except for his socks, they must be mismatched, but that is another story).

He loves going to the hairdresser to get his hair cut, and when I am blow drying my own, always asks "blow me too, mom" (not even touching that one). All I can say is, he is well groomed for a three year old boy.

I have really no idea how he got this way, except for that he spends a lot of time with his momma and sister. God knows his brothers are NOT groomers...even the 15yr old can lack in that department, and you all know the problems that face the pre-teen boy and their aversion to soap and water.

I guess we'll see what happens once the boy hits those pre-teen years.....of course, he will have a new role model, NewMan.....who is a "groomer" too.

The Mayor says he wants to be a girl when he grows up - no he says he WILL be a girl when he grows up. We say, "okay."

My 3 yr old is a lot like yours. I try hard not to laugh when he says he wants 'product' in his hair. :)

My son was a total metrosexual when he was three. Now that he's four he still loves to shop and wear product in his hair but will actually wear joggers and clothes that don't match.

Awwww! Makes me want a boy! We have friends with a son like that and the dad always freaks out. I'm guessing its not a problem, especially if he still enjoys getting all dirty! :)

My three year-old is similar. He doesn't have a thing for nail polish yet, but he LOVES lotion.

:lol: Well, he's starting early, right? Taking after NewMan? Good. What's up with the new design? No more retro-lady?
