THE PROOF IS IN THE FUCKING PUDDING

XBoy and I are walking through a very crowded parking lot at the mall.

XBoy: There sure are a lot of fucking cars here.

Me: What did you say?!

XBoy: Freakin’. I said freakin’.

Me: No you didn’t.

XBoy: I’m sorry…

Me: Where on earth have you ever heard that kind of language?

XBoy: You and Dad.

Me: I’m sorry, too.

  1. wow… I’m speechless. I can’t even begin to imagine how you must have felt. Hang in there!!

  2. Children really are made of sponge aren’t they?!

    Now forgive youself and know that none of us parents are perfect. Hell, they forgot to give us the manuals before they sent us home with the babies!

  3. A couple of f-bombs do not make a mess of a kid. Now, if he said mother f-ing, THEN you would have a problem. 😉

  4. lol! been there!

  5. Been there too – Z told me to bugger off the other day – being 2 he has no idea what he is talking about but I felt like worst parent of the year.

  6. Maggie was “helping” me fold the laundry and we were doing Joe’s shirts. She mumbled under her breath…”This shirt will sit in the basket for a week, ’cause he’s too fuc….lazy to put his own clothes away” I ignored it.

  7. I am trying to train myself not to swear in front of my kid, but it seems impossible. The F-word is probably already ingrained in my one year olds little mind.

  8. Ever since I married Mr. Rogers, I’ve been trying to clean up my act.

    It’s hard.

  9. I have a terrible mouth and I am ashamed. We mothers are human though…..

  10. OK, so this is obviously a huge fear of mine. I was discussing it with another colorful languaged friend and she pointed out that at least our kids will know how to use the word correctly in a sentence. I hate it when people force swears. It is a gift dear DD to be able to have grace and gift to drop an F bomb ever so perfectly placed.

    I hope you don’t take my humor the wrong way. I do know how much you are hurting right now. I know you, you are a good mom. I have heard you talk to and interact with X-Boy. He has spirit and spunk, not unlike his mother. This too will benefit him some day. Right now he is just figuring things out. I am sorry you have to get hurt so much in the process.

  11. isn’t it just sad that they know how to CORRECT themselves when we hear them…
    Little Man can do it too. I TRY (so so hard) not to swear in front of him…but oh man…
