a girl, her phone, and her farts.

I realize that Y, over at Joy Unexpected, thinks her daughter is the Queen of Farts. Well, I am here to tell you there is a Canadian competitor for the title. Girl Terror LOVES to fart. If her Daddy farts, she will try her best to squeeze one out, too. If anyone, anywhere, farts, she is thrilled. She bellows "Mummy! Somebody fart! Who fart? It was ME!!!" and then laughs like a hyena.
Yesterday she took fart sharing to a new level. She was playing with her toy phone, when her butt announced it's presence. Being the sharing, social creature that she is, she "called" our friend Dave and told him about it. This amused Hubby and I so much that we got the real phone, dialed up Dave, and she got to tell him "Hi, Dave! I got FARTS!!" I can't wait for her to go to school. That poor teacher.

WHEN do they outgrow that? Mine is 10 and she'll giggle, look at me and say, "I smell bad. I tooted" followed by more giggling and a deep sniff to reinforce that yes, she does indeed smell bad.

Almost as bad as her stinky feet. ;)

My daughter gets upset when her fart sounds or smells to "girly"

I live with 3 boys who all think farting and burping and any other bodily function is funny and most appropriately talked about or "presented" at the dinner table. I give up!

I don't have kids, but I have a lot of nieces and nephews who think farting, burping, vomiting, etc. are the best thing ever. Does she like the book, "Walter the Farting Dog?"

You're very witty, and you write very well. I enjoyed the first post so much, I kept reading to the end of the page.

Your post about "Nature vs Nurture" really touched me. I am adopted, and began communicating with my birth mother a couple years ago. I've been amazed at how alike we are. But I hear my (adopted) mother's voice coming out of my mouth almost daily.

Oh yes, and Hello! Michele sent me!

This is going to make me seem really silly, but I've been calling farts "bubbles in the tummy." Now how is that going to sound at school?

"Excuse me, I have bubbles in my tummy."

I know the word fart has to enter the picture sometime soon and then it's all over.

My daughter is six and is in that phase where all bodily functions are absolutely hysterical to her. She will crawl into my bed and place her bottom on my head and let one rip. My fear, of course, is she'll do this in school or in front of some other parents and I'll have to answer to Divsion of Children and Familes. Maybe I should just do it back to her so she sees how it feels - yeah - that's mature.

GT sounds hysterical. Hope Dave was impressed! LOL

Michele said...

HA! Wait until she's 10 and she's asking you to teach her how to light her farts, you won't know whether you should laugh or run away from home.

my daughter also thinks farts are soo hilarious. I think that laughing at farts is the least of my worries.

HA! We should have a Fart Off and the winner takes the title of The Queen of Farts!
