table manners

Last night's dinner was quite a success. However, it's apparent that my children lack one important table manner.
It started with the sparkley fruit juice that JT brought. The kids were delighted to have a special drink, and downed it quickly. Then A (3) prayed. His "amen" was a loud belch. This was pretty funny, to him, and he continued belching as the air rose from his tummy. Then Leila got in on the action.
Luckily our guests were who they were and not Aunt Joyce or the like. While it was rather surprising, it was an opportunity to remind them that in public one excuses onself, and also attempts to minimize the burps.
If it's just us though, we can do whatever we want. I usually blame the kids.
