My purpose in LIFE
So it has become apparent to me recently what my purpose in life is.
Some people spend their whole lives trying to figure out why they were put on this earth, what the point is. I've been blessed to find out early in my life.
My purpose in life is to teach my daughter as many unsavoury words or phrases as I can.
Or at least, this is how it appears to me. Every time I drop a naughty word into conversation I can 100% guarantee that Miss 3 will repeat it. She never lets me down. Shame her ears don't work as well when I ask her to clean up her toys.
It's a regular thing in our house to hear Miss 3 muttering "fuck fuck fuck" under her breath.
She calls Master 8 an asshole (in a nice way though, she thinks it's funny and a term of endearment).
When the ball hits her and she misses the catch she clutches her groin and exclaims "OH MY NUTS!!"
Today's new phrase is...........DOG'S BALLS
And it's entirely my fault.
My husband finished work early today (yay...not) and he kindly said he'd pick up Master 8 from school. I watched him walk out the door in his trackie pants, complete with socks and thongs. Yes, you heard right, SOCKS and THONGS. Black socks with bright red toes.
I said: "I hope you don't plan to get out of the car like that. Your socks stand out like dog's balls"
I didn't know she was there. Now all I've heard ever since is the constant repeating...."DOG'S BALLS, DOG'S BALLS!!!"
I try so hard not to drop too many swears in front of my kids, but sometimes it's near impossible. It's a big part of who I am.
Do your kids repeat the words you wish they didn't?
