My dinner conversation . . .

. . . with 8 yr old daughter went something like this:

Kid -- "Mom, OMG, wasn't it funny when the baby farted on my lap when I was playing ToonTown?"

Me -- "Yeah, that was cute. Eat your food."

Kid -- Starts to giggle. "He's like me always 'cracking wind'. Hahahahaha!"

Me -- Laughs. "Cracking wind? Okay, keep eating."

Kid -- On a roll. "Oh, yeah, I'm so funny. I just 'blow' myself away!" Catches the giggles bigtime from here on out.

Me -- Sighing loudly.

Kid -- "I should eat beans all the time. Like at lunch. And then I'd make a 'tropical storm'. In the Sahara Desert."

Me -- Trying not to giggle now.

Kid -- Eyes watering, can barely speak through laughter. "Hey, Mom, you want to walk on 'air'? 'Cus I can make that happen."

Me -- Totally loses it.

Yes, for some of us, farts never lose their hilarious appeal.
Never question a good laugh.

LOL! I love, love, love to hear kids laugh. My friend's baby loves fart jokes. She's five now and one of her favorite phases is "Watch your mouth young lady." It cracks her up.

I still laugh when I think of this conversation! Sometimes that kid comes up with the funniest stuff . . .

She uses the weirdest phrases and adjectives for things. Like boobs, she doesn't want to get them because they're "sloppy." LOL.
