Growing Pains

I'm sorry to admit, but the time has finally come.

I had to have the "it's not ok to fart in front of your brother's speech therapists during a grown up planning meeting at the kitchen table" talk with my four year old.

...you should have seen the disappointment in her eyes.

  1. I can handle the farting, cause my four four year old always ends it with "oops I just fluffed" - courtesy of her big old tattooed dad. Fluffed? Who says that?

    Mine has all of a sudden decided she is going to boycott wiping after using the bathroom, and is perfectly fine walking around in shitty drawers all day! Oi!

  3. Love it!

    My daughter thinks it is funny to fart in front of people. I have passed embarrassed and humiliated, now I am pretending to act like it is no big deal and politely tell her EVERY time to say excuse me and stop laughing about it.....

    Wonder if that will work? LOL!

  4. Theres an awful lot of gasiness going on around here too. My husband mostly and my daughter secondly. When I was little my parents told me to say "I shot a bunny" Strange but funny. Anyway, I felt compelled to share my farting stories too.

  6. Oh how I hate having to have those talks. They just don't understand why it was okay before and now they begin to realize, maybe growing up isn't so cool after all.

  7. Fluffed...lol

    My daughter, who will be 4 in October, always looks at us, smiles and says excuse me and sometimes we laugh with her and it's fun. She calls it "tootles" thanks to her aunt, my sister.

  8. Yeah but if you have the talk with your daughter then you need to have a talk with yourself. LMAO

  17. Oh the fart talks. Gotta love them. My 2 year old son likes to fart and blame it on others and acts REALLY disgusted.

    Then my baby (7 months) farts and it scares him. Some times he looks around thinking "who did that"

    My girls who are 8 and 5 will fart and think nothing of it and go about the day. I tell them hey fart in the bathroom. I like to breath fresh air.

    My kids call farting pooting or they say pooted. I don't know where that came from.
