Things of which we normally don't speak

When you have young children, you quickly accept that you will now discuss bodily functions that normally I don't admit to ever doing myself. I know that some married couples can discuss such things, and even do them in front of each other freely, but Mike and I are just prudish, I suppose. We allude to them, discreetly, but that's the extent of it.

But with kids, all of that normal social etiquette goes out the window. I guess this is because if we didn't encourage the children to do these things, *our* lives are that much more difficult.

"Mommy, I put a HUGE poo into the toilet!!"

"Congratulations Sweetheart! I'm so happy for you!"

"Mommy, Anne just made a really loud noise. I think she gassed."

"Oh good! She must feel so much better! Good for you Anne!"

It's just part of our lot in life.
