Last Friday night, we had some of my friends from work over for a BBQ. We were talking about our kids and the things they can come up with to say. This story about my son skaterdude came up. He was maybe 3 or 4 years old at the time.

When telling this story I am going to have to use the "F" word, sorry, but there is no story without it.

I was downstairs in the laundry room, doing what else but laundry. Skaterdude came in very serious looking with something in his hand ( I think it was a battery charger, if my recollections is correct, but that doesn't really matter, it what he said) and looking right at me with his tiny hand out stretched and said "WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS", not believing what I heard, I said "what did you say", again he said "WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS". I didn't know what to do, I was pretty shocked at his word choice, but I have to admit, I was laughing inside, because of the way he used the word it was priceless, but needless to say I was not happy with his choice of words. I gave him a little swat on the butt, and told him to never use that word again.

On our way back upstairs, I decided to test him on the lesson just taught. I said "Skaterdude, what was that word you said just before"? His response, "I'm not saying that again", lesson learned.

So when I walked into work Monday morning one of my friends turns and asked me "Jane WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS"?

I just had to laugh.

Kids sure are good at repeating what they hear! Especially the things we don't want them to say.

It's scary when they start coming out with those words, isn't it?

When Wren began reading, she noticed that word written near the school bubblers and asked me what it meant. :)

Congrats for being the Blog of the Day on TheMomBlogs.

It's amazing sometimes what comes out of our children's mouths. When my daughter learned a new word, we had to discuss why they were inappropriate. She had a hard time with understanding why others could say it, but she couldn't. We ended up having some long conversations with the family members she was hearing it from that they MUST monitor themselves in her presence.
