Who knew?

We have blue shampoo for kids that smells like blueberries. And we have pink shampoo for kids that smells like strawberries. You'd think it wouldn't matter which one we used, but apparently I was wrong. Because tonight, while I was helping Bria wash her hair, I used the blue variety. And she totally flipped out...

"Why are you using the blue shampoo on me? I wanted PINK! Now I'm going to smell like a BOY!!!"

"No you aren't...you're going to smell like blueberries."

"No I'm not!! Blue doesn't smell like blueberries, it smells like hippopotamuses! And I don't want to smell like a hippopotamus! I want to smell like a sweet fairy! That's what pink smells like!"

And now I know.
