Things Kids Don’t Know That We Don’t Realize They Don’t Know (Or Maybe it’s Just My Kids)

At supper the other day B.G. let out a big fart and then started giggling. The following conversation followed:

Hubby: “You know, it’s not very polite to fart at the table.”

B.G:  “Mme X at school always says “Get OUT!” when someone farts in class. I don’t think that’s very nice. What are we supposed to do?”

Hubby: “Hold it in!”

B.G. (perplexed): “…What do you mean, hold it in? I don’t know how to do that.”

Bonhomme (waving his hands in the air): “Oh, I do! I do!”
