The mouths of babes
Spew some nasty words around here. My girls can cuss a man to shame. Not that I am proud of that, mind you, but they can really bring it. The part that amazes me is their ability to use such horrible, nasty vulgarity in such perfect context. I have the hardest time not laughing when I hear them use swear words in casual conversation. For example Kay was driving the tractor the other day and I asked her if it was fun. She said "Yeah it was fun, I was driving the hell outta it!" Or there is the famous "Get your hands off my !@#$%&* barbie!!" That one was my middle kid. She puts a sailor to shame. I'm not sure why I felt compelled to share this with you all today, it certainly doesn't make my parenting look all that stellar. I just know that every little kid says bad words, and while you may not burst out in laughter like I do, or are halfway proud that they can use them correctly we all have stories like this. So, I say it's ok, have a chuckle. At least you know they listen to you at least some of the time!
