On the way home today, the kiddos were begging for "Dairy Queeeeeeen!!!!"
Had they not been complete monsters on the playground, I might have considered it. The way I look at it is, if I'm going to shell out my hard earned money to get them a treat, the least I can expect is some good behavior...sheesh...at least they could listen to me:/
So....I said: "No, we are not doing Dairy Queen today...you haven't earned it."
To which The Little Man said: "f*ck"
Did I just hear that? Did my four year old just say the "f" word???
I said: "What did you just say?"
He said: "f*ck"
OK...there was no way I was hearing that. He was in the front of the stroller...there was a lot of traffic noise...he has a cute little lisp...I had to have heard that wrong. I stopped pushing, walked to the front of the stroller, looked him right in the eye and said: "What did you say?"
He said: "f*ck"
OK...no mistake there...my four year old just said the "f" word...three times to me...without having any idea it was a bad word. I mean, he knows "God dammit" is a bad word. He substitutes and says "got penguin" instead. I can't exactly police substitutes. He knows potty words are gonna get him in trouble. He knows "stupid" and "hate" are unacceptable words...but he didn't know "f*ck" was a bad word. (Although, now he knows that it absolutely means there will be no Dairy Queen.)
Little Man told me who he got this word from. (I knew that kid was gonna be a problem on day one:/) It was my biggest fear about sending them off to school. What do you do when your kiddos are exposed to other people's children?
