...the one who smelt it...

A scenario that has repeated itself with alarming frequency these last days, particularly now that Baby Sunshine has dramatically increased her farting:

Me and Baby Sunshine are hanging out, I'm playing with her, trying to make her sleep or something like that. Mrs. Sunshine comes into the room, sniffs, makes a face and says "wow, her farts can be really stinky these day" followed by a few seconds of silence until I decide to come clean "Uh...yeah... that was actually me...". Last night this triggered such a laughing attack from her side that it woke up little Baby Sunshine who had finally fallen asleep and the whole bedtime routine had to be done all over again.

Maybe I should just blame the baby from now on? There is a risk that she would take her to the doctor though to examine her terrible bowel problems...

Would this be related to the "divine wind" you mentioned in the post before last?

That picture is so fitting.

I am sure your wife appreciates the honesty!

Isn't that the reason to have children, and dogs?

I do have to say, I totally concur with Mr S.

Sometimes babies just have a slight, well, odour about them. Unless you spend quite a bit of time with the baby in question, it can be hard to figure out whether it was a fart, a poo, or just the normal odour... sometimes even the sniff test needs an expert nose to determine the actual situation.

Octopus - Well, believe me, it's anything but divine...

Ainsley - Yep, so it probably balances out with the smell in the end!

Mr. S and Lina - Well, dogs are the worst, I actually don't mind the baby farts that much, very mild so far

Aimless - Yeah, it's true, and the diapers we use smell a bit to begin with. Usually I can guess when she's sitting in my lap and it gets all warm suddenly and poo leaks up from her back, that's usually a good sign
