passing gas

we've been having a lot of "toot" issues around here lately. as in , the kids, well really its colby, are discovering that their bodies do this, and theres usually an odor that follows.
i picked him up from the church childcare the other night and the teacher said that he was sitting against the wall by himself, and he said
colby: "it smells bad over here."
teacher: "why does it smell bad?"
colby: "because i tooted."

then last week i had an off night at the theatre and allen was out of town, so i took the kids up there to watch some of the other cast rehearse for the show to see how other parts were coming along. my friend katie and i were sitting there with the kids, and we smelled this really bad fishy smell. we looked at each other at the same time...
katie: "do you smell that?"
me: "yeah, its bad."
colby: "its probably the toot i just did. excuse me."
me: "its not a toot smell, colby, but thanks for owning it."

turns out the guy behind us brought his dinner in with him and there was shrimp in it, explaining the fishy smell. ick. bad choice in close quarters for those of you who may find yourself wanting to eat shrimp in a small building with other people. just sayin.

on another note, the kids have starte their extra-curriculars, so we're officially part of the "im just the chauffer" club. colbys doing swim team. well, more like prep to be on swim team. mollys doing an hour of dance, which she loves. i'll try to get some pictures of her up at some point. colbys hard to get to at his practice, as far as getting a good picture goes, but i can probably get a few of mojo.
they're getting so big!! molly turns four in november and colby turns six next month. he's lost two teeth now, and has two more loose.
we've been talking birthday party preparations and it looks like we're going to have a ballerina and bug party. they're birthdays are a week apart and for now they're still ok doing a joint party as long as they each get their own cake. looks like we'll have plenty of leftovers. which can be good or bad depending on how you look at it--and how strong my self discipline happens to be that day.

i hope everyones doing well as we enter into fall, and finally maybe perhaps start to see some cooler temperatures.
have a great weekend!!!
