Tonight at supper, Sam pronounced to me that he was all done. We've been trying to work on a few more manners and some more small responsibilities, so I said to him, "Great! Now what do you need to do?"
I was expecting him to say that he needed to take his plate to the kitchen, but since we've been working on having him say "Thank you" when we have supper at someone's house, that's what he said (plus, he's a really thoughtful little guy). I told him he was welcome, and then told him to say "Excuse me", to excuse himself from the table. Instead, as he was climbing out of his booster seat, he leaned over, grunted, forced out a FART, and then said "EXCUSE ME!"
I guess I should have know that would be where a 3 year-old's brain would take him.
Jack, on the other hand, has no clue about farts. Currently, he LOVES balls, which always causes a bit of a conundrum since he can't really move much. He doesn't crawl yet (but dang, can he pivot!), and he refuses to roll. He's getting awesome at walking with our hands, but still needs our help for that. (Turns out, he's following in his big bro's footsteps - quite literally!) A lot of my day is spent giving Jack a ball, listening to his sweet little giggles, followed by shrieking, and then returning the ball to him.
Good thing he's so freakin' cute. :)
He's starting to babble a lot more, and though he prefers "Da da", I can sometimes eek a little "Mom mom" out of him. But barking with his brother? He'll always do that on command. AND he makes car noises while pushing toy vehicles. Amazing.
Hopefully it'll be a little while before he learns about the farting. But at the rate he picks things up from his big brother, I think I may have two little tooters on my hands in no time.

- I am a lot of things. I am a precious child of God and a follower of Christ. I am a wife to my husband, who is my favourite person ever. I am a mother to my two priceless, handsome little boys. I am a reader. And a knitter. I love puzzles and crosswords. I like to run. I am passionate about social justice, and would like to do more about that. I love a good glass of red wine, almost as much as a strong cup of fair trade coffee. I like to think and ponder and analzye. I am passionate about my children and about parenting them in a gentle, respectful way. I dream (with my husband) about living in the country, in community with others. I want to use my life to show Jesus' love to others. God is still writing my story. I am being shaped and changed - for the better. But the one constant in this journey is that I am an extremely blessed woman.
