Tooting the Night Horn

Last night I was sleeping quietly when what sounded like a loud car back fire woke me up. I sat up in bed wondering what was going on was it a car a gun the start of some night time race when I heard it again. This time it was clear that was no car back firing that was the sound of the passing of some serious wind. I looked accusingly at my hubby as he slept on as innocent as a lamb.

Well! I thought there goes the romance. We've never been the kind of couple to cut the cheese freely in front of one another. We've never even used the bathroom in front of one another and as far as I know he may have never answered natures call in his life. (Hey don't judge. After witnessing child birth twice you do what you can to keep the mystery alive.)

I was catapulted out of my thoughts when suddenly it sounded. The passing of wind this time as a long scary musical note followed by some little toots and a loud thunderous clap.

I was shocked. It came form the wrong direction. It was near my side of the bed. I looked around for someone else to blame.

There's no dog anymore it couldn't be him.

Is it me?

Am I the nocturnal farter? Am I the one tooting the night horn?

Once again the bottom trumpet was sounded.. and it wasnt me of that I was sure. I felt no rumbling, no gust of air. It was... the baby monitor.

My beautiful little S was the midnight tooter. Yes my tiny little girl was sleeping bottom up and was creating such a noise that even my son stirred.

Strangly enough I found I was proud. Yup, my little girl may be tiny, she may not even be on the weight and height charts but her powerful gas cried out I am here! I count! I am a powerful gassy being!

Hey, I'm a mom I take pride where I can get it...shesh

Can I send my husband over to your house so you can explain why not to pass wind in front of each other. It's old... really old... and smelly.

Way to go Baby Girl. Don't let anyone convince her when she is older, not to do this when she is awake or she will suffer with the stomach ache for years and won't tell anyone why. This happened to a friend's little girl and when her mom realized that was happening, she assured her it was ok to do and she let go when ever the need arose and no more tummy aches. Cute post.

It's a rare gift to be able to make farting adorable you know.

Ali said...

Oh yes, my nine-month-old can fart with the best of them. Can I just say, how nice it would be if my husband would not fart around me. Unfortunately we are a pee with the door open household - mostly my fault I'm afraid, no modesty!

Very funny. Though I so wish my family would leave the room to pass gas. My kids are 10, 11, and 16 and they all think it's hilarious. And my husband is the worst offender. My kids have nicknamed him "Chief Many Winds." So sad.

Helen said...

Thank you for my morning chuckle! 'You go' little one!

Erin, Nick and Merrick said...

Hahah! That is the best!

Too cute!
She's one powerful little sweetie!

That's hilarious! I used to marvel at some of the belches my babies could let out.

Now THAT is a story to tell her date on prom night.

Hey - I tried to reply to a comment you left me (via e-mail) but I have no idea how that works...do those replies actually reach their destination, or do the just float into cyberspace? Anyway - I wanted to ask you something. So if you don't get my e-mail, you can reach me at bigpieceofcake@gmail.com. Thanks!

Who knew a little toot could cause so much laughter.

At least you can't smell the monitor! That is too funny!

LOL!! :) Way to go baby sis!
The first night we were in the hospital with our first newborn baby boy, there was some extremely loud passing of wind and I just glared at my husband... I was afraid the whole hospital wing heard it... he looked back at me just as surprised... the culprit was our little 3 hour old guy :)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!

Debbie said...

Your pride in her is so adorable! What a cute story.

docgrumbles said...

lol!

JAG is quite the tooter, too.

and... D and I have never answered nature's call in front of each other.

You crack me up!

How cute! Although it does often seem that the smallest person is the worst offender.

My husband has a flexible standard when it comes to bodily functions.

His bodily functions=Normal and nothing to hide.

Kid's bodily functions=Funny, unless he has to deal with them, then gross.

My bodily functions=Horrible, disgusting, and personally affronting. If he HEARS me peeing through the door he freaks out.

You see, with this system, I end up with all the smelly stuff...I'd much rather go with your system!

Great post you got here. It would be great to read something more concerning that topic. Thanx for giving that data.

We have never been to a couple of free cheese cut in front of each other. We never even in the bathroom in front of each other, as far as I know, he may never have to answer nature in his life.
