A Little Shock For My Day

It was bound to happen sooner or later... Madison and I were putting clothes away and I can't quite remember what she was doing, but she got frustrated and said, out loud, "WTFing"? I don't know that I can describe the look on my face or how far my jaw dropped. I mean, how does this happen? Where do they learn this stuff? We don't say that at home!? So we had another one of those talks that you hate having as a parent. I know she has no idea what it is or why anyone says it, but WOW, I was not expecting that to come out of her mouth.

I know God will make me pay for this... but THAT is what you needed to have recorded and posted on here. I can so totally imagien her saying it and with all the emphasis and such. I cannot stop giggling at the thought.

Sorry I haven't been around in a while, but while the blue is pretty, I just can't read the black type on it. And I like reading your stuff. Oh well.
Glad you went to the fair - we went on Saturday and had a good ($$$) time.

Amy: I know you can picture it EXACTLY, my little attitude princess that she is!

Joe: It should be black type on white?

The thing that amazes me is how they learn proper usage of things like that. I mean, yeah, you might hear someone cuss, but to use a phrase like that at the right moment is crazy to me.

I have to agree with Keds though, that would have been funny to see. I'm reminded of the video on youtube of the little girl who matter of factly answers her mom's question of what she'd do if a monster came into their house by saying, "I'd kick his ass".

On the first day of Kindergarten my son came home and asked me what "f___" meant. At least I know where he learned it.

Now that he's a teen he and I both use that word way too freely but its so expressive, it comes in handy to get a point across.

lora: sometimes the bg images take a long time to load, and it's blue forever. ;)

My son won't even let me say things suck, or are stupid. I have to use big words he doesn't yet understand.
