Damn Indians

One thing winter weather means...I drive:P I don't like to drive in the city. I think everyone drives like a crazy person in the city. I typically have two kiddos in the car, which makes me safey, McSaferton driver. Fact of the matter is...when the weather is nice...I walk. I'd rather be walking.
The Little Man LOVES cars (he calls them taw taws) He spends his time making "taw taw parades". I swear...hot wheels cars are like Gremlins (remember those cute little creatures that multiply when they get wet?) This house is overrun with "taw taws".
Yesterday, Little Man and I were in the car....

Little Man: "Mommy, is there an Indian behind us?"

Me: (paying half my attention to him, and the other half to bad drivers aiming at us) "What Indian?"

Little Man: "Mommy, why is there always an Indian behind us?"

Me: *confused* (I just kept on driving...)

(Cue bad driver almost rear ending us at the stop sign...why does everyone in this city tailgate me?)

Me: (out loud) "What are you doing you IDIOT!"

Little Man: "See...there's always an Indian behind us!"

Hmmmmm....perhaps it's time to keep my driving expletives to myself:/

  1. Your driving expletives are a lot cleaner than mine. I try, oh I try, but out they come. I can't wait to see how my daughter interprets them.

  4. haha Love it! My 5yo has started picking up on some of my trash talking too. We were at a stop light the other day, 5 or 6 cars back, and from the back seat he's all "Go! Why aren't these cars going!?!?"

    Oops!

  5. Ha! This reminds me I should be doing the same (though when mine slip out, they might be a bit worse than 'idiot')!

    We also have a ton of toy cars here, and for some strange reason, I thought my youngest should get even more at Christmas! I just sigh when I see them all.

  9. Hahahaha! Hilarious! Oh boy. I should probably refrain from using choice words while I drive as well... ;-)

  10. My son has said to me in the taw taw, "Mom, I think you need to honk and yell at that car." Like I've ever done that before.

  11. I called another driver a POS the other day, only I didn't use the acronym, naturally. My daughter pulled out the choice expression not 15 minutes later. Sweet. Sponges, they are!

  12. Dude! I love it! And this post would work beautifully with my brand new idea I launched today at MWOB called "Conversations with my Kid."

    I was gonna tell you about it on the phone cause I need a button. :-)

    Okay - still at work but call you later. Hope you'll be around. Hard to talk in the office....
