Ode to the Clinton Family

So, my good friend Lily recently posted a blog about farts, yes I said farts. As I responded to her blog I realized I had a lot to say, so this goes out to my friend Lily and to those who understand. Any of you that have boys in your family or just know my husband know that farting is just what happens, it just happens. I too think this is very funny, TBS laugh it up!! I laughed out load as I read her blog. I grew up in a family with 3 boys where the bodily function was laughed at and joked about always. Not that my mother did not try to stop it but it never happened. The loud laughter was always loader then her efforts. I think the only time that we were cautious was when Grandma Baugh was visiting and she would scowl at us and tell us we should call it pass gas with a little accent that made her sound like she just flew in from London. I also had a few girl friends that had fart contest with there brothers, you know who you are!! Then I got married and if you know Troy or his brothers, it is normal, well as normal as it can be. They end up laughing so hard they look like they are crying and I do know on a few occasions in smith center, doors had to be opened and people ran screaming from the house in town. You know of the event of which I speak. It is a normal function in my house and you are lucky if you are laughing because most of the time you are just passed out on the floor. You would think having a girl would change all that but Gracie has her father’s problem. Ok, so it maybe just a baby thing and hopefully she grows out of it but if not there will be no worries were the boys are concerned. If I do have all girls then I will try to pass on that the fart should be looked down upon, but I doubt that this will happen considering all the uncles she has.

Sorry, I have not posted any pictures for a while. Things have been busy. Gracie is doing great, she is growing fast and always doing new things. Our latest is eating cereal. She has done so good with it and has been learning how to eat actually eat it. In that discovery she has found that she has a tongue and now sticks it out all the time. You will also see her with a little doll we call suzzie. I was at Target looking around and picked it up to see if she liked it and decided I would bring it home. She loves that thing. It is hilarious she just holds it, tries to eat its hair and screams at it. It is so funny.

The past two months have been filled with friends. I had a group of girls come visit in February and it was so much fun to see them, some I had not seen in years. It is always nice to catch up. Then in March I got to visit with some more of my girl friends and it happens we all have daughters so we took quite a few pictures of them together, this consisted of us laughing histerically at them being together. It has been such a blessing to be able to meet up with these girls, I should say women. It is always nice to catch up and to chat an afternoon away. I never get old of the wonderful sound of chatty girl friends. And it is always a blessing to be able to compare notes with other moms and to see my friends I grew up with as parents, I love it and enjoy being able to be apart of this part of there life.
