Yippee due to good behavior and a good CT scan my father-in-law got early parole. Granted he is still on house arrest (my husband took his car and we hid the van keys) he has improved so much and looks so relaxed( well who wouldn’t in their own home). He is still having some issues with names, but his memory is strong. He is going to be great Thank God and thanks to all of you who had him in your prayers.
Touching on some dirty words
Now I have slowly coming to realize that my daughter is going to be an interesting teenager, because boy she an interesting and intriguing 4 year old. She is indeed my little drama queen. She loves to be the centre of attention and will do what is necessary to get it. She also loves to use shock tactics and one of her favorites is saying words that she considers naughty.
I do not curse. Well not really.. on occasion i will say …s*** or call some one an a** but that is the extent and I try to never say it around the children. And I certainly don’t allow my husband to curse around them or me.. so he reserves that language for the football field or if he hanging out with the guys.
For no reason other than she thinks it is naughty she has decided that her dirty word will be ‘bottom’ so out of nowhere she will say ‘bottom, bottom, bottom’. It is usually around her father. She gets away with murder with him. We try not to react (and we have been doing very good with letting slide and keeping it calm) because that is what the books say that it is a stage and she will grow out of it and honestly bottom is just a word. Who cares if she is referring to her rear end.
But it makes you wonder why the need to use dirty words, is she getting it at school, maybe? Why is this a stage that she has to go through? And why is it that it is only the one child with this need to make up dirty words? Why is my son keeping his word clean ok so he is now finding his words, but still?
But for those of you who have been here with me for awhile you would remember she use to fixate on the word Mango. Mango Mango Mango you know what I miss Mango it is much nicer than ‘bottom’.
(yes I know there is no point ot this entry other than to blow smoke LOL)
