Table Talk

I have been working on table manners for our family. Only to discover... I am going to have to work on Dad's too! Seems all the boys want to talk at the same time. Geeze. Another 'male trait' I'll have to write down in the books.

Yet, it has been fun. We find an object to pass around and the person with the object is the one allowed to talk. Doesn't always work, but we try. And along with it is '20 questions' that everyone gets a chance to answer. Like: What is your favorite color? What can you think of that is yellow? What makes you happy? What's your favorite game to play? And last night... what is your favorite song... And I have forgotten what the boys said because we laughed so hard at Dad's singing.

He was singing "Old MacDonald Had a Farm"... but instead of an animal... it was:

Old MacDonald had a farm, eieio
And on his farm he had a momma, eieio
with a fart fart here, a fart fart there, here a fart, there a fart, every where a fart fart

(now replace fart with fart noises). Even I was laughing so hard it hurt. He did a great job. But I'll never think of that song the same way again. Neither will the boys. It will be interesting to see the outcome of this little ditty... I may have some interesting songs from the boys to post soon.

And this morning, I read that Bou has questions about farting as well. seems this is a fart kind of week.
