I don’t know which makes me more proud…

The fact that Declan wrote a poem about farts, or that he did it in cursive.

    That’s totally worthy of hanging on the fridge – or framing!

    Farts are always funny!

    Cool on the cursive.

    Gretchen, here’s the funny thing – I *hate* the word fart! He knows he’s not supposed to use it! But it was too funny to resist. ha!

    I just love boys. No hesitation whatsoever to wax poetic about farts. LOL! I’m sure my cherubs will be writing fart poems before long…just, please, not at school. 😉

    I tried to duct tape my kids to the chair until they wrote in cursive too, but it didn’t work. What’s your secret? 😉

    Thanks y’all. He truly is a nut. A very sick nut right now (strep AND flu!) but a crazy little nut.

    Ah, that fertile mind of Declan’s! I’m not a fan of the “F” word either but I’d be so proud if my kid wrote such a fine essay.

    Sorry Declan’s so sick!

    Words fail me. “My fart is grose…” it’s sheer poetry.

    Reason # 47 that I’m in pain that I’ll never have a son.

    You must be glowing.
