Coming up with your own parenting lingo. “Calling Doctor Dad; Doctor Dad to the nursery for an emergency fart extraction.” You see, Daddy is our resident Fartopractor and an expert in fartopractics. “Fartopractics” is our lame but amusing attempt to venture into neology. His techniques? The over the shoulder leg pump: Meebs’ tummy rests on Daddy’s shoulder and he pumps her legs up and down—this position usually prompts a few giggles along with the gas. And then there’s the belly leg slide: Meebs is placed tummy down on Daddy’s thigh and slid forward/back. Sometimes you need to infuse a little humour into a situation to get you through; especially when dealing with a gassy, not-sleeping wee one. Now that’s a wee wonder.
