A Play in Two Acts – “The Toot”

Act I

The Scene: 6:15 a.m. Dark hotel room. Mommy & Daddy half asleep in king-sized bed. Five-year old boy child half asleep on fold away bed. Two-year old boy child AWAKE in Pack n’ Play.

2 yo Boy Child: Benna?

5 yo Boy Child: What Gav?

2 yo Boy Child: Blah, blah, blah, yadda, yadda, jibber jabber, jibber jabber and something that must’ve sounded like “doggie.”

5 yo Boy Child: No, Gav, we don’t have a doggie at our house.

slight pause….

Act II

The Scene: Still the same but Daddy let’s out a short but loud “toot.”

5 yo Boy Child: giggle, giggle, giggle…

2 yo Boy Child: Daddy TOOT!!

Mommy & Daddy begin LAUGHING like crazy lying in bed togther and boy children follow suit. Mommy revels in the fact that 2 yo boy child KNEW it was Daddy who tooted and not her! : )



  1. Farting is awfully funny, isn’t it? 😉

  2. Heather M says:

    Maybe because when mommy toots she says “excuse me” and when daddy toots he laughs like a little boy. That’s my theory at least.

  3. Too funny – boys will be boys! Hope you are enjoying the vacation!

  4. toots are the funniest….

  5. LOL! That is funny. Got to love stories like that! I am sure that the B Man will talk about that for awhile! :)

  6. LOL!

  7. DUH! Because mommies don’t ever toot LOL

  8. Haha! I’m sure if it had been you, you would have politely excused yourself…maybe that’s how he knew. :-)

  9. Mabrie and Allie always say eww its stinky must be daddy, I guess they think only boys get stinky :)

  10. That is just too good! You gotta love what a good fart does to a kid lol!

  11. LOL–we call ’em ‘toots’ too 😉

  12. Love it!

    Enjoy rooms for four because soon enough you’ll need a suite to fit all of you. Or just do like we do and rent a condo!

  13. Oh, Elaine! That’s sooooo funny!!! I love your interpretation of Little G’s words!

    And yes, soon enough, you will need a suite when you go out of town :)

  14. That’s hilarious. As my hubby says “toots will ALWAYS be funny to family! LOL.
