not for my mother's ears

ok, so i'm an only child & my parent's divorced when i was young & i was completely raised by my mother & i'm 100% her child. & my mom, i'm sure you can't relate, but she's kinda weird about some things & really uptight about certain things. like the word fart, i'm not sure i've ever heard her say that word & keep in mind it was just her & i so a lot of male things are just not discussed.

so when B was off to japan & i was raising little one instead of saying fart, i said "pootpoot". as in "did the little baby make a pootpoot?" - like that. i also remember at one point when i referred to Z's diaper rash & i said something about his sack being red & my mom just about fell on the floor at the foul language i used.

when B came home with all his maleness, Z had to learn a whole new way of speaking. one of our absolute favorite combinations is when he exclaimed
"my pootpoot made a farp"
yes, farp, he was trying, but didn't quite get it!

B is still in recovery & last night he said, "ouch, my pootpoot made a farp & it hurt my balls". good thing mom didn't hear that one!


  1. b must be so proud! poot-poot, "fart" and balls in one sentence!

  2. yeah, if my mom was napping, she probably was awakened by it...knowing somewhere off in the distance, foul words were being sputtered...


tell me your thoughts...
