I’m introducing “Back in the Day…” as a way to blog about stuff that happened B.B. (before the blog.)
This morning I was feeding Sadie breakfast and she burped, then giggled. I laughed with her and said, “Sadie say ‘Excuse me.'” She attempted to say it but not before I remembered how when Aubrey was around the same age, she used to say, “bacon,” every single time she burped.
I have zero idea where Aubrey got the idea that you were supposed to say “bacon” after you burped but my sister and I found it so hysterically funny we started saying it too.
When Aubrey was a little over two years old, Zeb’s brother graduated from Marine Corps boot camp. We drove to Paris Island, S.C. from Savannah, Ga. for the day to celebrate and cook out with his family. We ate hot dogs and hamburgers and spent time with Zeb’s siblings before loading up and heading home.
On the drive back, Aubrey and Emma were in the back seat with my niece, Faith, watching The Little Mermaid. All of a sudden the car windows rattled as Aubrey burped like a full grown man. I was waiting for her to say, “bacon,” but instead I heard, “Mmmmm! Nummy hot dog!”
It’s okay to throw up in your mouth a little bit, I’m pretty sure that’s what Aubrey did.
