Monkey Asks Why

Monkey burped several times as we finished dinner. Then we had this conversation:

Monkey: Mama burp?

Mama: No, I don't want to.

Monkey: Mama burp?

Mama: No, it's really not good manners.

Monkey: Why?

Mama: I don't know!

Monkey: No idea!

It was a fun conversation! We think it's the first time he's asked why. He was so funny about it! But I still don't know why not. There are places where a good belch indicates that dinner was good. What's the logic behind forbidding them?

All you simply have to do is explain that he is setting a good example for the cows, and by so doing, he could help protect the environment.. I'm sure that should clear things right up for him.. haha :)

You crack me right up!!! I guess I can tell him that... not sure that he'd follow the humor in it just yet, but I'll bet his Dad will, LOLOL!!
