It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Adding to the mythos

1144994_floral___The fumes in the room are eye-watering. I dispense with the foulness under Noah’s small bottom as quickly as possible while the crowds gather.

“He gots a giant poo!” Timmy is impressed, even exultant.
“Who does?” Anna races to see. “Nissa?”
“No. Noah.” Timmy is reproving. “Nissa doesn’t poo. She is a girl.”

My husband’s voice, deadpan, from the adjacent room: “No. Girls don’t poo. They don’t fart or sweat, either.”

Timmy nods sagely. “No, they don’t.”

  2. Your husband just passed on a piece of wisdom that all young men must learn early and never forget.

    Women smell like flowers all the time it is natural and not remotely related to the cosmetics industry. The whole industry was created to make men feel that women are actual human and do need fragrances to mask the fact that they like men can be olfactory challenging.

    He must be a very wise man that husband of yours, and the gray hairs on his temples are obviously well earned! Or is the point here that this fact is so obvious that even a young man like Timmy knows it at such an early age?

    If any man might dispute this let him never be heard doing so in the presence of a female, or do so at his peril.

  3. I convinced my daughter that a mother is like the Queen and never farts, at a very young age. She believed it for many years. My husband and sons still do.
