It snuck up from behind...
With a little help...

Words we just know

I say, "Fuck it!"***

Darn it, Bloglines -- what is the problem lately???

***I recently mentioned that Mack is talking a lot.  A lot.  The kid isn't even two for another month and he's saying things like, "How ya doin'?," "I'm good,"  "My nose is bugging me!,"  "I'm getting grumpy!"  and, after a tour of Mom's wildflower garden and an inspection of a prized new specimen from Japan:  "Jack's in the pulpit!!"

He's also saying things like, "Gawwd!" and "Dammit!"

His parents, of course, have been watching their tongues very, very carefully, but don't forget that he has two older brothers -- a LOT older and, well, it's an all-or-nothing kind of deal.  ; )

Then there's the extended family.  It must be a little bit in the blood.

In a conversation with my sister just this morning, she told me that something fell over or fell down the stairs or something and she said, "Oh crap!"

Mack said, "Fuck it."

Annie said, "No, Mack.  Remember?  We say, 'Darn it'."

Mack said, "I say, 'Fuck it'."



Oh boy. If Mack is going to talk like that I'm not going to let him be Ambrynn's boyfriend. ;-)


My niece and nephews don't curse. They must be immune to it considering the language being heard from the adults in our family. ;-)

Mack is DARN cute.

laughing. out. loud.


They just know! Somehow, kids seems to get the right context for bad words!


Oh my!


That is so funny! Mack is a riot.



I'm smitten!

It's in the blood. Mac is too funny.


LOL - I can see it now, he'll get sent home from preschool for cussin'. :)

I hear ya about bloglines...


Mack is my kind of guy!


hilarious. i bet it's just more priceless when it's out of the mouth of a 2 year old! haha


My son, now 13, was also an early and articulate talker. At just two he was upset about something and said, "Damn." I put on my best Mommy voice and said, "Damn is not a nice word. We don't say damn." He looked me straight in the eye and said, "I say damn. Damn." It has been a rocky ride ever since but I wouldn't trade a minute of it.

Oh dear - the things that come back to bite us in the arse.

My mom told me that when I was a toddler, I would sit on the floor doing puzzles, cursing the pieces that didn't fit, "Damn puzzle!"




Finally a kid swears and it isn't my fault!


LOL Ian's taken to saying "Christ" lately. Straight out of his grandmother's mouth. At least he gets it from her. If he was getting it from me it would be far far worse!


I was very careful about my language until mine were seniors, one in college and one in high school. Then I let up a little and so did they. The best was when #1 called to tell me something that hadn't gone right at all -- I think it was that he couldn't get into university housing for his senior year -- and I said, "Oh, fuck!" to myself (I thought) and he replied, "That's what I said, too."

As long as they know when they can say it and when they can't, it's all good.


that's fricking hilarious. :) My 4yo today said "dirt bag" and I asked him where he heard that (he's the oldest and only goes to a hippie preschool) and he said "Over the Hedge" mom!! Oh, Ok, from a movie I bought him for Easter! DAMMIT!


i like Mack.
