Conversation this morning with my 7yo son:
William: Dad, yesterday Taylor (4yo girl) said all of the cusswords.
Me: Oh yeah, did mom hear?
William: yeah. And she didn’t even get in trouble.
Me: What did she say?
William: She said
- your not the boss of me
- and all the other cuss words there could be, except the V-word.
Me: What is the v-word? (thinking I knew all of the cusswords, but the gravity of this v-word issue was almost concerning…)
William: (hesitating, and in a whisper) … “vain”
Jason that is the cutest thing!
That’s too cute!
Nothing is more endearing than the innocence of a child.I can remember being horrified when my third-grader was telling about her classmate using the F-word. “The F-word” I cringed. She said, “Yeah Mom, don’t act like you don’t know what it means….. Fat!!
