On the way home from the pool today, my kids were
passionately advising me complaining about how hungry they were.
That’s when my seven year old boy uttered a sentence I never thought I’d ever hear him–or any other human being–say. In his description to me of how famished he was he strung together a series of words to make a proclamation that I’ve gone my entire life never hearing anyone say until today.
“I’m so hungry I can’t even fart.“
What made this so incredibly bizarre is that he sincerely wasn’t trying to be crude or funny, he was completely serious.
It’s moments like these that make me pause and reflect on how great–and unpredictable–parenting can be.
