Oops we did it again...Bad, Bad Words

Did you ever believe that your children would actually be paying enough attention to everything you say to repeat all the (bad) words that come out of your mouth and in perfect context? We apparentely did not learn our lesson the first time this happened because Kyle just keeps busting out with the bad, bad words. When Kyle was a little over 2 he was riding in the car with my husband Kevin when Kevin let loose with the mother of all bad words...f***. He was driving in traffic and just could not help himself. Go figure. Well, Kyle yells from the backseat f***, f***, f***. At which point Kevin tries to tell Kyle, no, no I did not say that, I said TRUCK. Kyle did not buy that and the next thing Kevin knows, Kyle is yelling from the backseat f*** truck, f*** truck. You would think we had learned our lesson. Really watch out language around the kids, no more bad words, blah, blah blah but Oh no no no, we apparently were not as vigilant as we thought. Two weeks ago Kevin and Kyle (now 4) are standing in front of the fridge with the freezer door open looking for dinner or a popsicle, who knows, but long enough to feel the cold coming from the freezer. Kyle, in all his 4 year old wisdom, with a very serious face looks at Kevin and says..."Holy s*** it's cold." My husband blames this on me as s*** is my word of choice.

Hee hee.

One point for you, but only if you are sure you taught him this word. Another if you can get him to use it in public.

One Smartest Kid Ever (SKE) point for Kyle for using it correctly in a sentence. I believe Epiphany can put you to shame with Lauren's vocabulary, though. She can fire off quite a few impressive examples...

Kyle is his mother's child. That's not to say that Ashley has a potty mouth...but, since I'm nearly four years older, I can remember many times when she (at age 2 and 3) used the bad, bad words in perfect context. An "SOB" incident in the bathtub comes immediately to mind.

Ashley Long said...

Nope, no bad words in public yet...he just insults people, telling an overly large man that "he has a big belly." At least he did not ask the man if he had a baby in his belly like his auntie paige.

When Ross was two, I gave him a VERY LOUD example of the common usage of S***, which he (of course) immediately parroted back with perfection. Luckily, I was hanging wallpaper at the time and so, for many years, I had him convinced that was a word you only used while wallpapering!

Karen, I concur. That word and hanging wallpaper go hand in hand.
