Get spotted Snacking or Farting

We discovered recently that Bubbles has a pretty keen sense of smell.

A couple of days ago, my mother hurriedly ate one of these Almond Cookies before attending to Bubbles. (We try not to let Bubbles snack on sugary stuff.)

The bub stared at her grandma's (already empty) mouth, pointed to it, and exclaimed indignantly: Biscuit!

Well.
Even more hilarious, and possibly alarming:

One day, I was sitting a few paces away while her watching her play. I then farted. Ok I can't believe I just said that. Online. For the whole world to see. But you know, I really want to tell this story, and the fart is an integral part of it. So if you will, hands up if you've never farted in your life because I'll like to learn how you do it!

Back to the story...
So I farted while watching my tot play.

The bub immediately looked up and said solemnly: Flatus
(Yes, that is actually a technical word for Fart. Click on the link of you don't believe me.)

I almost choked.
What?! I said

Flatus! She repeated enthusiastically, sensing my interest and breaking into giggles.

Now, will you join me in holding your foreheads from shock?

By way of explanation, my mother is a trained nurse, and no one baby talks around here.

My only consolation is that if Bubbles ever announces Flatus to strangers, in an enclosed lift, I'm hopeful no one will understand what she means, or assume that my tot is just babbling. Hurray for medical speak!
