My son is under 2 years old, BUT I can still teach him about dating. Perhaps not so much the moral aspect of it, that can and will obviously wait until it is relevant, but I want my son to start good habits now.
Sometimes we do playdates. I have a checklist in my head that I go through to make sure he is ready for his ladies in waiting. We start at the top.
smell nice via baby lotion.
fresh, clean nappy.
nice, clean clothes.
and a flower.
I remember dating in my younger years and we girls used to talk about guys and their hygiene- yes we did! Some of us notice everything, and I am positive guys do the same with us girls!
Dating is fun. And even better when hygiene doesn’t spoil it. And really, who doesn’t love getting a flower from their date? 🙂
