Bubbles Rise, plip, plip, plip.


Tonight's post is brought to you by:

My son has not been sleeping well (as many of you already know by now), and he is still complaining that his tummy hurts. He lifts up his shirt and cries. Tonight, while eating dinner, he leaned forward and farted several times. Later, still crying that his tummy hurt, daddy gave him some hugs...and he farted again. So the next time he fussed, my husband grabbed him and said, "put your butt in the air, buddy...there you go."

[picture this]: he puts my son on his lap with his head down and bum up. He.is.hugging.my.son's. derriere! The odd thing?-- he sat there for a long time, and I'm sure his tummy DID feel better after a little help from gravity...meanwhile my tummy hurt from giggling myself into a silent fit!

*When you tell your son to fart in your face to make his tummy feel better, THAT'S the love only a parent can give.

  6. Oh how funny! I'm happy there was some relief, as there should be. I mean, who wouldn't feel better with their coolie in the air and someone giving it big smooches?

    BTW, I put my ruby shoes away for the next (maybe) trip to OZ!

    :):)
