Just when I thought I was in the clear, those words came flying out. My threenager turned into a mini sailor swearing up a storm. And not just dropping an f bomb here or there, he went full on with every sentence having one & kept repeating that same sentence over & over again. I can’t say I don’t know where he picked that up because I tend to enhance my own sentences on occasion. After the little man was born I have tried to watch my swearing & limit it when possible but occasionally an f bomb or three may come out.
We were walking out of a restaurant Friday night after dinner when my son said “It’s looking dark.” Ok no big deal yes it is looking dark because the sun is going down, but then he repeated himself making the word more clear. “It’s fucking dark.” I had to think for a minute because my little one would never say that word. The worse he says is when he farts or he talks about poop which is what little boys do. It came out again, “It’s fucking dark. See mom, it’s fucking dark.” My jaw dropped. I told him he cannot say that & it’s a naughty word. In the mean time, I’m also trying not to laugh, because he just said it so casually & I shouldn’t be laughing. So we go about our business with no more f bombs throughout the night.
We wake up the next morning & decide to go outside to play in the sandbox for a bit. Parker opens up the bin that hold all of his sand toys, & says “There’s fucking water in here. There’s fucking water in here!” I say, yes there is water in there from the rain, but you cannot say that word. We talked about that word & it’s a naughty word. He says ok but I don’t know if he really gets it.
The remaining weekend goes by & we celebrate Easter with no more f bombs. Fingers crossed that we don’t hear anymore of them either. I will be watching how & when I enhance my sentences so that the little ears don’t pick up on any new words or phrases. Although I can picture him at daycare & telling someone to eat a bag of dicks. (One of my favorite phrases) It never fails though, kids always say things that you don’t want them to or when you least expect it. Shit happens.
