I posted earlier about my daughter's increasing vocabulary and I got a couple e-mail's asking me what the words were. Mind you, unless you have/know a 5 year old these words may not seem very impressive:
Also, let me add that while I'm very nerdy in my vocabulary I also have a swearing problem. Jason used to stare at me in horror our first year of marriage as he heard the f-bomb more times than any husband ought to.
My folks were the parents that wouldn't let us say "butt", so once I was married I let the four-letters words fly in celebration of my new-found freedom. It was all very fun to swear like a sailor until sweet Ruth started saying "Shit" at 1 1/2. I laughed loudly the first time she said it(even swearing is cute at that age), and realized too late that I'd made her think good comedy was wrapped up in "shit". We cured her of that and have taken the stance of mild words of anger are fine (crap, shoot) and as she gets older I'll give her more freedom. We've also come up with some great inside insults. Ruth and Caedmon "Eeny, Meany, Miney, Mo" each other and then open their eyes and point at the person and say, "You're a nutbag mustachio!" Nothing like a little "nutbag mustachio" to start the day off right!
