The dare that dare not speak its name

May 6th, 2008

In the spirit of daring girls and the daring women who love them:

“Mom, good news!”


“I’ve just about learned how to arm fart.”


  1. as my dad would say, “everyone needs a hobby…” LOL!

  2. Wow! That’s one thing I could never manage to do (along with burping the alphabet).

    Go, Georgia!

  4. Really, no childhood is complete without the “arm fart.” So Georgia can go ahead and mark that one off her “to do” list. Quite an accomplishment 🙂

  5. I must admit that’s a skill I’ve never mastered. Georgia is indeed advanced!

  6. That book is on our shelf!! And, I’m a bit jealous since I wasn’t born to master that skill either.

    Great job, Momma!

  7. I wanna be Georgia when I grow up. I was never able to master that particular skill, either! Teach us, oh master!

  11. Georgia, you are so talented. I have never been able to do that, although I have often tried, and practiced a lot. It is a great skill.

  12. I love that she not only announced her new talent, but that she proclaimed it “good news!” If only we could all be so gleeful about ourselves and recognize our accomplishments as the good news they are.
