As a parent, I frequently find myself saying the most ridiculous things. Whether the words flying out of my mouth are meant to comfort, amuse, or discipline – I often say things I NEVER imagined I would say.
Thankfully, my son is two (or as he has been saying lately, with three fingers firmly pointed in the air: “I be free on May Five”) and never seems to notice that what I have said (or sang) is not normal. So today I will begin a new installment of posting the crazy things I have said as a parent. Like, I said, these are things I never thought I would say (or, on occasion, sing – for a prime example, see “The Boobies Song“).
Today: “Christopher, quit laughing! Farts are not funny.”
Why didn’t I imagine saying this? For two reasons. The first, I am not a huge fart talker. And second, I hate to lie – because no matter age, race, gender, size, shape, religion, sexual orientation – farts ARE in fact really funny.
