Our boy has reached the developmental stage where farts and poop are the best thing ever.
As a parent, you always worry about whether your little one is hitting milestones.
Well, let me tell you, our T is exceeding expectations with the farts and poop phase, even using technology in innovative ways.
Of the millions of dollars spent in research and development of smart devices, I bet the inventors never imagined the sheer joy their creations would bring to kids at bedtime.
On a recent evening, I spent 20 minutes trying to stop T from repeatedly asking the Alexa next to our bed to “pull his finger.”
I never imagined that Alexa even responded to that. But sure enough, the usually classy elderly British lady would just let it rip.
Then she asked, “Would you like me to do that again?”
I screamed, “No, Alexa stop!”
But T’s giddy, loud laughter and screams of, “Yes!” consistently overpowered mine.
And I secretly loved every minute of his laughter and enjoyment.
A few days later, last Friday, on the last day of virtual school before the current Spring break, T’s class was doing a group language activity.
The teacher worked with the class to create a postcard message together, imagining that they were astronaut Chris Hadfield sending a message to his family down on Earth.
“What else can we add to the message?” the teacher asked the class.
I always encourage T to participate more in class, because I know he has something interesting to say when it’s just to the hubby and/or I.
“T, can you put your hand up?” I asked. “What is the astronaut doing in outer space?”
T said to me, “He’s pooping in his pants.”
To which I quickly replied, “Put your hand back down please.”
