He Said What?!?!?!

My 6 year old came from school as always ready to tattle on someone. This time he told me that an other boy on the bus had called his friend "the S word." I'm pretty sure that my 6 year old does not what most people refer to as the "S" word. So I asked my son, "what is the 'S' word?"

6 Year old son: (with a look that says I'm totally stupid) Mommmm, you know, the "S" word.

Me: No, I'm not sure what the "S" word is. Please tell me. What did the boy call your friend?

6 Year old son: Mom, it was the "S-L" word.

Me: Hm... I really don't know what the "S-L" word is. Can you whisper it to me.

6 Year old son: (Now clearly annoyed at my ignorance) Mom, you know, the "S-L" word. It's "stupid."

Me: Oh, that "S" word! (Whew!)

I love how well trained to avoid potty mouths your son is! And ummm how does it become an S-L word? That part I'm still stumped on.

Wow--that's a major sigh of relief. My three-year-old says stupid. It's awful.

S-L? I'm confused on that. But I love that he's convinced that "stupid" is a bad word. I wholeheartedly agree.

The s word is banned from my house. What did the L stand for??

To everyone who has asked, "How does that become the "S-L" word?" I have no idea. I'm sure if we ask my son, he will roll his eyes at our ignorance.
