Dialog, Part 13

Miss-Miss: Mama! Papa! My toy wet!

Me: Well, of course it's wet, hon. You're in the bathtub.

Miss-Miss: Dry her off! Dry her off!

Me: When you get out of the bath and get dried off, we'll dry off your toy, too.

Miss-Miss: Oh, crap.

Me and Ty: *blink*

Ty: Did she hear that from you?

Yep. Look on the bright side. At least she didn't say "Oh, fuck!" Pause, realizing I just said that out loud.

Ha! That's so cute.

HAHA! My wife was sitting on the couch the other evening when she almost spilled her drink. "Oh Crap!" she said, and my daughter immediately looked up at her and said "Oh, Cwap!".

We lol'd.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure one of Z's first words is going to get us in trouble with the FCC.

Donna said...

Yeah, I've resorted to saying watered down versions of swear words, because even though my son refuses to start talking more fluently he's decided to at least pick up on swear words ... I say Cripes and Holy Cripes a lot any more.

Thanks to my husband, my daughter's first sentence was "Ernie goes down on Bert".

I'm leaving it out of her baby book.

Avitable said...

She'll probably remember that phrase and use it when she's with your mom or Ty's parents and then she'll let loose with an "Oh, fuck!"

Ok, Where Was I? said...

It's kinda cute though when little ones say "fuck" or some variation. My oldest went through a "you fuckins" phase. I miss it a little.

Not Afraid to Use It said...

Ha!! That is awesome! But if they DO start yelling Fuck! Fuck! You can just tell people they are trying to say "truck". Works every time.

Kids say the damndest things...I meant darndest.

Ty-man doesn't say CRAP???

HEATHER said...

This is too funny!!
I realized that my cursing was bad when I dropped a jar of pickles out of the fridge on my foot, and said "Son of a.." but that is all I said.
A wee small voice piped up from behind the door and said "bitch".
It was too funny. I stiffled my laughter long enough to tell him that word was a mommy and daddy word that babies weren't supposed to say that.

My friend Bonnie M.O.T. has a funny story like this... I think you'd appreciate it:
You guys should get your girls together for some potty talk... LOL

Molly's Mom said...

I am REALLY surprised mine hasn't come out with something including "crap" yet. I know the governor on my mouth is starting to slip a little.

HAHAHA!! That's funny!

I used pretend swearwords, when the kids were young. I was very good! I'd say 'Oh, futch!' for instance. Only under duress, of course.

Anyway, kids aren't stupid. Just like Heather, I had a little help from the oldest boy one day. I can't remember what I'd done, but I started to say 'Oh, sh ... and then stopped. A little voice piped up; ' ... it!'

He was so pleased with himself! LOL!
