That Lovely Baby Smell

I'm borderline obsessive about washing my hands. I need to have them clean, and if I think I might have touched something suspicious (e.g., shopping cart), I really want to wash my hands...quickly.

I obviously wash them after certain things baby things like changing diapers. We use Mustela products (e.g., barrier cream), which smell wonderful. Not sweet or of baby powder...just baby fresh and clean. But I wash and scrub my hands afterwards because...well, you know why.

So when I've finished and forgotten about the diaper and I'm off eating lunch, I'm conflicted. My hands smell of Mustela. I know I washed very, very well, so I know my hands are clean. However, I can't help but be reminded of where my hands where not-so-long ago.
