Mommy, that was a really big fart

5th February 2007

Mommy, that was a really big fart

It all started at the video store tonight after dinner. Tomorrow is a public holiday and my husband needs to work tonight in the office, so I thought I’d like to watch a movie that I like, rather than compromising on something we’ll both like. It ended up being a family trip since the pet shop next door always has puppies in the window.

I was quickly scanning the  video titles, looking for one that would fulfill the requirements of my $1 coupon. My oldest daughter comes up to me and asks innocently, “Mommy, do they have a toilet?” Alarm bells start to ring in my head. This is not an innocent question from a girl that has only been toilet trained for less than six months. I hurriedly assessed the situation - doing the potty dance? No. Any leakage? No. Crossed legs? No. Okay, we have a few minutes. I asked her if she could wait until we got home and she said yes.

I continued to peruse the titles available to me, realising that I’ve seen a lot of movies in my lifetime. Then I hear “Mommy, do they have a toilet here?” At this point I think, okay, things are escalating rapidly here. I hand my husband the car keys and ask him to quickly get the kids buckled into their seats and I’ll finish choosing the videos. We need to get home quickly.

We got home and I quickly herded the oldest into the bathroom and she’s dancing around, telling me that she really needs to go. Normally I would make sure she took care of things herself, but considering the urgency of the situation I helped her take her pants down and plopped her on the toilet seat. She promptly farted. Loudly. Her response? “Mommy, that was a really big fart.”

It certainly was.
