When Teaching Your Kids Manners Backfires

Sometimes I like to let out a really loud belch. Usually when drinking pop. I don't do it in public or anything. But at home, there is nothing like just letting a giant burp come out with full force and volume.

So I have to say that it really is annoying when, lately, every time I try to bask in a good belch, it is immediately followed by the voices of my two children in unison: "Mommy! Say EXCUSE ME!"

I know I could say it. But I have found that it ruins the satisfaction of the whole event.

Dang those kids and their pesky manners.

My kids now say "must be a barge coming through!" when we ask them what they say when they burp. It was funny the first 19 times, but now I wonder if they remember what they're supposed to say.

haha... nothing like being able to rip out loud in your own home... I know. I being a stay at home mom have gotten a little too lax... I do the same thing and the other day my dh friend was over and we were all outside and I let it fly forgetting he was there and it echoed all around! wEll my kid thought that was hilarious since he was laughing uncontrollably while saying "scuse you Mommy!" no hiding from that one *sheepish grin*

OK, so because of my stomach problems, one of my main symptoms is that I have to burp all the time now! It's slightly annoying.

I have no idea what it is like to get out a nice belch. I dont know how to burp on purpose. Is that weird?

I like to say "burp" while I burp.
