Smellcome to Manhood: The fun of raising a teenage boy.

Disclaimer: This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and Old Spice.  All opinions are 100% mine.

Your son growing up is hard for most Moms to accept. We still see our sons as the little boy, playing with Hot Wheels and Legos on the living room floor. So when our boys start to show signs of growing up, most Moms wanna cry. We want them to remain little forever. Dads on the other hand are excited for their sons to grow up. They have another man in the house. This idea is the story behind Old Spices new promo "DadSong". A cute tale of how Dad feels about his son growing up. If you have not seen it, Check it out at:

I can't believe that little boy in the middle is now 15 and 6ft tall.

Now as most of you know I'm the mother of a teenage boy. When he started getting older I too wanted to keep him a baby forever. But POOF it seem like overnight he woke up with facial hair and body odor. SMELLCOME TO MANHOOD TOMMY! Neither of us was excited at first. He now had to shower daily, which he finds a chore. But that is the best way to cover up his manly smell,the bad kind.  And I'm not sure who's idea it was but at that stage he thought he should wear body spray. Which would be helpful, if he did not wanna wear a whole bottle at a time. I mean if hes trying to impress teenage girls. How would he be able to talk to them? When they would be gagging from all the body spray?  So what I need to do is to teach him to SCENT RESPONSIBLY like Old Spice says. I mean who better to teach us about manly scents then Old Spice. Its a "Mans man" type of scent. So how did I teach Tommy to Scent Responsibly? I explained that the Old Spice Re-Fresh will kick in as his body temp goes up. No need to reapply or put on a ton. I told him "it works like deodorant works, when you sweat it turns up the scent. Now that my son is "Scenting Responsibly" its all about the great manly scents of Old Spice. This is not your Grandpas Old Spice. These scents are clean, crisp, and manly.

How to get your man to Scent Responsibly? 

First pick up Old Spice Re-Fresh in the scent of his or your choice. Then apply a Two second spray and your done. With Old Spice's new  Re-Fresh body sprays its never been easier. One 2 second spray and it lasts all day. It eliminates the need to re apply or over spray. The motto "One Spray lasts all day" is so true. My son comes home after school, sports and friends smelling great. Check out their new nature inspired Timber scent. Or my sons favorite scent, Swagger. Its a great, clean, scent that even I love.

With the holidays coming up Old Spice has some great gift sets out!

No matter if your looking for your son, father, brother, or husband. The Re-Fresh body sprays make great stocking stuffers. And giving the gift of manhood could not be easier then with Old Spice gift sets. They make great gifts for the men in your life. Do you have a teenage boy who you wanna Smellcome to Manhood?

Beba Babble- Just a little about my last few weeks.

As most of you know I love and breath social media. What started out as a hobby has blossomed into what I hope is a career, or at least a fun side job. But I have to say trying to find time to do it all is not as easy as it seems. Especially lately my Fibro is acting up but to make matters worst, I gained 40lbs in about 6 months. My Doctor kept trying to say it was all my fault, the weight gain. However, a new Doctor just explained to me its the meds I was on. Since cutting those out I lost over 7lbs. Thats not a lot but great since I am limited by the pain when it comes to working out. But I am staying positive that soon I will have this down to a bearable minimum. I try to also not complain about it much online. Thats what family is for. LOL! Id love to connect with other women going through this too. If you are or know someone. God Bless! And know that there are others like you out here. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog.
