As a parent it’s always nice when your kids are proud over you, or even better boasts about you… We held a little birthday party with the little one the other day. The entire class was there and had hamburgers and drinks. One of the guys started burping, as 9 year olds or younger (and older too) sometimes do to get attention. After a few hefty burps and a few giggles and laughs, little one gives up a sigh with a somewhat tired glance towards the ceiling and comments:
– Pah! That was nothing. My Dad, he can really burp!
That kind of put an end to the attention-burping and the party went on to other things without any further comments on the subject.
