The Inevitable

This afternoon I was putting groceries away in the kitchen and BVZ and Norah were doing an alphabet puzzle in the living room. And it happened. I dropped a butternut squash on my foot and said the F word (in the kitchen). Between identifying the letter O as 'O' and the letter T as 'Tiger' followed by a roar, Norah also said the F word (in the living room). We didn't even flinch and she had no idea she had just made Grammy's worst fear come true.

I am trying. I swear (no pun intended).

Spencer drops the "s*#t" bomb quite often. For a while we got him to switch it to "oh darn", but I fear that he's hearing it from our sitter. I can't totally blame her though, because sometimes a car will cut us off and Spencer will whisper "s*#t" from his car seat. NOT GOOD!

Great job for not reacting when Norah said it too. Now she'll never know she said the mother of all curse words.

When Eliza says frog it sounds like she's saying the f word. Jenny didn't like it too well when I taught her to say,"Frog you."

Ha, ha, ha! Ava's already said "shit" a few times. My mom said her new year's resolution was to stop cussing when my niece was born, then she kept calling Alex to tell him it was going pretty fucking well.
