So I told G that it was really stinky gas, so she started smelling it. I said, "Stop taking deep breaths!" And G said, "But it smells like gween gas." (green gas) All I could imagine was the noxious fumes drawn in cartoons as green clouds or gas.
I wasn't sure that laughing was appropriate, but I did laugh. I don't want to encourage the discussions of gross bodily functions but G thinks "toots" are the funniest thing in the world. Maybe she will grow out of this, I hope.
About her smelling things, when I say she smells things good, bad or other that is what I mean. She gets paper and smells it. If I get something in the mail, she smells it. She doesn't smell each bite of food she takes but she does smell my coffee. She takes the top off my instant community coffee (that used to be at work) and smells it until I tell her to quit. She doesn't linger over the bad smells but she does enjoy seeking out smells. Does anyone else's kid do this? Or maybe not and maybe mine is the strange one? I don't mind it, I just think she is experiencing her world, learning sometimes anyway.
