Table manners part 2

It seems it is time for a Small Sprog post. He has been busy. He's always busy! He has been 'unplugged' from his Nintendo (I've hidden it) and so he has had to learn how to do without it, which is no bad thing. I am worried about him being attached to a screen for so many hours in the day, unlike myself who hardly ever goes near a screen and can easily control my need to blog; not!! For the first day he had withdrawal symptoms (these included whining, whinging, and asking for sweeties!). I just do the wine(ing) and sweeties (head in cupboard style!) when compulsorily detached from my computer, although husband may include all three if asked (don't ask).

This evenings tea time went like this................

Tall Girl, halfway though her meal, burps so loud that a rugby player would be proud to compete against it. 'What do you say?' I ask in my best school teacher voice.
'Pardon me! I couldn't keep it in' she complains.
'Can't you do it a bit more quietly then?' I say
Then, seeing an opportunity, Small Sprog decides to come to her rescue. He lets out an equally huge fart! He giggles uncontrollably! Small Sprog has the man gene for farting. I believe it is formed from an early age. He can fart to order in any situation you care to put him in.
The whole meal disolved into chaos.
Another tea vicar?
Part 1 of table manners can be found here and here.

Reminds me of a little ditty we once all used...pardon but it had to pass out the mouth or out the a** lot sound like a handful...mine were too!

Bodily functions are pretty humorous, I still laugh. Good call on the nintendo. My wife is a pre-school teacher and thinks the fast paced images are damaging to a child. I think they may be damaging to everyone...

Hope it warms up a bit for you!

Thank you for reminding me that my 2 are normal~ They do the same thing. Except My husband usually joins in to create more chaos!

Hello Suburbia. Nice to see a Small Sprog post and I hope the little chap is working on his bass - an important part of the man gene for comedy wind breaking. Lighting is the next stage!

Thank your lucky stars they are not rats! At least your two can release themselves & not explode!

Suburbia said...

That's so funny Maggie! Sometimes Small Sprog has dog tendancies!

BS5 Please don't tell him about the ignition technique!

Susan, thank goodness we're not the only family in chaos!

Phosgene... cold and raining today.

Sandi thanks!

Liz...thats a matter of perspective!

I hope you don't mind me calling by. I have arrived via the mother of this lot and her awards post, from a few days ago.

I have 3 grown up sons and can assure you that the farting starts from a very early age and that, unfortuately, they never seem to grow out of it! Well, I'm still waiting, anyway. Can I call by again?
