With age comes many skills. I can laugh, cough, sneeze and pee all at the same time. :bg:

I do everything but the pee part (no kids....I've been told by Dr's, women who have kids do that more than those who don't....I'm glad I don't, otherwise I'd be wet all the time.. :re: )

Having children is a beautifil thing; they are worth the all the scars! Without little girls, who would wear the beautiful little frilly dresses we love to make? Sewing provides us with the opportunity to visit our powder rooms any time we want! Hee Hee!
May God Bless you!
Pray, sing, sew and drink only the most excellent coffee!

You gave me a little giggle and a reminder of a happy memory of my Mom. My Mom was a pro at multitasking (as you call it). Although she passed gas, sneezed and coughed at the same time. All us kids would just die laughing when she did it. It seams to be hereditary as my three yr old can do it too.
My mom's name was Mary, and so I always call my daughter little Mary when she does it.

Mary it's mostly because of age and having children that we do that but for me I've always giggled and wet my pants even as a child. And as for the passing gas, it's becoming very hard to control that one lately. Out the clear blue sky. Soooooo my Mother really couldn't help herself after all. And I thought she was just telling little fibs. :bluesad: Funny the older we get the more we really do become our Mother's. I had a good one so I don't mind, as a matter of fact it's a compliment.

Thanks for the giggle this morning -- I am finding lately that every so often when I walk into the powder room and look in the mirror I swear I'm looking at my mother! And now that my daughter and granddaughter are living with us, I like to tell my DD that she is more like me than I am like myself, and that she shouldn't take that as a compliment!!! LOL

I'm glad I'm not the only one who is sooo talented. My least favorite combination is the hiccup and the burp. Also know as the hiburp. LOL Try NOT to do this one. I have done it maybe twice in my life and it hurts soooo bad. :shock:

I really need to thank you all for the smiles this morning. They are just what I need. My mother-in-law was so good at passing gas every time she stood up
(but she always denied doing it so )my kids came up with a good idea. They decided that as Gramdma couldn't hear very well and her smeller didn't work either She didn't hear or smell what she did so why should she admit to doing it. They still to this day when they all get together have to have a giggle at Gramdmas expence. Knowing her she is probly laughing right with them.
