The other day we were driving home and my three and a half year old son asks his mother “Mom, did we run over a dead skunk? Something’s stinky.”. Alaynah, my five year old daughter, without skipping a beat, replied “No Aaron, I think it’s just daddy makin’ fart’n's.”. I love my kids.
The funnier part came immediately afterward though, when Alaynah told AJ “Or it could be my feet. I just took my shoes off.”. Indeed it was her feet. Holy cow pie Batman, we need to get that girl some socks.
Before we left for home that night (we were at the in-laws) my father-in-law asked my daughter Sarah if she could see Venus. After a little banter about the bright star in the sky being Venus and not an airplane, we left.
After the fart’n's incident we were still on our way home and Alaynah asked Aaron if he could see Venus. He replied “I can see Penis. Penis. Penis. Penis.”
Note to those trying to understand boys… yes, we can derive all sorts of entertainment from our penis. And no, we don’t need to be taught that.
