    I took the kids to a playarea today and there was a little girl there that just had this weird smell. The mom didn't really smell. It's was just the little girl. I think it was some kind of lotion, shampoo, or cream or something. I know it wasn't a poo diaper. But we were there for three hours and we were around them off and on the whole time depending on where the kids played. Now four hours later I cannot get this nasty smell out of my nose. It's so gross. I think it's just not sitting right with me because I'm pregnant. Normally I can't smell that well. It just stinks! We are going to the grocery store after dinner and I am going to go over to the freshener area and wiff a bunch of candles!

    Try smelling coffee beans. That's supposed to clear your nose. That's why a lot of perfume counters have cups of coffee beans, so you can clear your nose between smelling different fragrances.

    That's a good idea! I started dinner and burnt garlic in the skillet. That pretty much took care of the nasty smell. If I can still smell it when we go to the store I will hit the coffee aisle!
