Before telling you the events over supper a couple nights ago I must first mention that Farm Boy and I have discussed the need to put P.O. Priscilla in the brig and banish his little mouthy goblin to the underworld...if you know what I mean. I talked about all of that here and we've been doing better...we've been working on it.
However...instead of just completely wiping any sort of negative language from our vocabulary we have apparently substituted some words for other words. Not really purposely. But hey...when you need to say the s-h-i word you need to say it right? So you say...crap for instance.
A couple of nights ago Farm Boy, Q-Tip and myself were eating supper. Farm Boy and I were discussing the day's events and somewhere in the conversation Farm Boy lets out an Oh Crap. We continued the conversation and all of a sudden...Farm Boy gets this look on his face. This look of...I'm no longer hearing a word you are saying because I'm hearing something else...look. So I stop and listen.
And much to my horror I start hearing...oh crap, oh crap, oh crap, oh crap....over and over and over again.
Farm Boy and stare at each other for about a minute. Halfway horrified halfway fighting back a giggle.
But all I can think about...over the shock of my 17 mo old saying oh crap is...Thank God it wasn't me!! WHEW!!
It's not my fault...I can't be blamed...he would NEVER let me hear the end of it if it had been me!
Now I realize that crap isn't an appalling word. Nothing like the s-h-i word that I once used so freely. But I'm not really sure it's something I want to hear my 17 mo old saying. Ya know? It's just not.
So...looks like Farm Boy and I are going to have to work a little harder at banishing the dirty words around here. Even the craps, darns, and dang its.
And do you wanna know what I say to that?
