Well if you remember from my last post, I did tell you I would let you in on a few secrets of when my girls were little and how they handled the …..Tooties, Bubbles and little Farties …Yes I said— LITTLE Farties …’cause we’re …girls!!!!!!!!!!!
As we all know by now, everyone, I mean……everyone, has ‘bodily functions’ or whatever you call the little noises in your life. It is the way we handle it that makes the difference.
As Rhonda-Lee is the eldest, she always thought she knew best when dealing with the Baby and all that Babies do…… “But” when there was something that was not as much fun to deal with, she would give a yell …MOM …Baby Jenni needs you.
Well as the girls grew and developed their own unique personality, it became clear that girls have just as much fun as boys with their bodily functions.
Here is a picture of my girls and I all dressed up and back from a birthday party. I was explaining to them about manners.—- the reasons why it was important —There had been someone, at the party (not mentioning any names), that did not leave the room and it wasn’t pretty…
As I was telling them what to do if that happens to them when they are out, I saw the little smiles coming and I knew that ‘Mighty Maggie’ and ‘Sneaky Stella’ were already developing very nicely in their little minds…..….thank you very much…
As a parent you do your best to teach your children all about manners….little did I know how this would help me much later in life. Only after the girls were all grown up and had children of their own, would this idea come to me, like when my little granddaughter would say to me….. …..Watch out Grandma ..Here comes Magnificent Mary…. and a little toot would be heard. ……
Bodily functions are a way of life and children never, never get tried of having fun with it.
From all the childhood adventures, there is always something that I can draw from to create the journey of the little “BUTT” family and their gassy adventures. Children love to hear what the little BUTTS” are going to do next..
As laughter and music just seem to go with any bodily function that is happening, we have certain songs that just bring back memories …I think Brooks and Dunn would love this version of their song done this way…..”Butt– Scoot and Tootie”…..it just give you a really good country feeling!
Then we would Rock and Roll and sing our heart out to the song “”Farties Flying Free… you know what I mean”"”"…. ….Oh yeah, we could really rock it out and if we needed to (a little tootie coming on) ….we would just move across the room and just keep on dancing!!
We all loved “Meatloaf” …but I don’t know if I can ever think of “Bat out of Hell” the same way again. The song came on …we started to dance and all of a sudden the loudest ….. “TOOT”…. came screaming out and we all looked at each other and fell down laughing as Meatloaf kept on singing!!!
To this day, no one has admitted to doing it. We all blame each other. Thank you Meatloaf, for all the great fun we had hootin– rootin and …tootin to your music!!
Now that my children are grown and have families of their own, we think back and remember the good times of just laughing and having fun with all our bodily functions —burp’s were not excluded from our family fun either but that another story.
With all the grandchildren involved with what is going on with “Meet the Farties”, the laughter continues. Whether everyone understand our humor or not that is OK, as we enjoy the unique way we have with dealing with things that make…. noise ….
As long as we always teach manners that goes with the body functions…what are you gonna do …if you have to ****——Just say —-Excuse me please…
Here we are all grown up. Thank you girls for all your inspiration and fun that we have had getting this new venture off the ground!!!
