Bad Words

This morning my 6 year old came up to me and smugly announced, "Mommy, I know the 'F' word."

Me: Oh really? What is the "F" word?

6 year old son: Fart.

Me: Yes, that isn't very nice to say.

6 year old son: I also know the "C" word.

Me: (My heart is racing now. I wasn't expecting a list of bad words! Especially the "C" word. Yikes!) What is the "C" word (asked very hesitantly)?

6 year old son: Crap.

Me: (Whew) Right. That isn't a nice word to say either.

6 year old son: I also know the "I" word.

Me: (Hoping this is the last round for my son's new little "game" of "see how much we can scare mommy" and totally confused as to what the "I" word could be.") Ok. What is the "I" word?

6 year old son: Idiot.

Me: Yes, that isn't a nice word to say. I hope you don't use any of those words.

6 year old son: No, mom. I don't say those words, but I heard other kids.

Me: Good. (Whew! So glad he didn't answer with other bad words!)

Yep, this is the bad word list for now.... just wait until it's the *real* bad words. I'm just hoping that my wee ones will get that there are times with your friends (when they're OLDER) that you sometimes may use them socially to fit in (*sigh* as much as I hate that) but that there are many many many inappropriate times that you simply don't use such words. Good luck!

Oh, I am so not looking forward to that! But it sounds like your child is a great speller! :)

Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting!

Love that those are the bad words he is the most worried about. I hope his innocence hangs on for quite a while.

OMG--my heart would be racing, too! My son has learned a lot of bad words, too, after he started school,and, unfortunately, loves to say them.

Ha! I laughed so hard at this. What a great story. Kids say the darnedest things, don't they?

Also love your "profile" description. Too funny.

I've enjoyed looking through your blog tonight. Thanks! -Julia :-)

My boys have not learned a lot of bad words but if they do I will holp that they are like your son's bad words.
