When A started making noise just because she could at around 4 months old I should have expected this to happen.
We don’t swear in our house, or in any part of our lives for that matter, but that doesn’t mean that little ears don’t pick up on the things you’d rather her not repeat. At 21 months-old now, we have a little parrot on our hands. She talks – a lot – and picks up on using new words faster than we realize.
We knew from examples of her coming home from day care with new words and phrases, but the perfect example of this came yesterday when she was being watched by my mother.
My Mom and A were walking outside when she had a sneezing fit, just like her father does when his eyes are hit by the sun.
“Achoo, achoo, achoo! Toopid!”
Say what? Uh-oh, seems like Daddy needs to watch his language. You’re going to have to find more creative and less “profane” ways to express your frustrations now and I will do the same.
It could be worse, right?
Be careful little mouth what you say
Oh, be careful little mouth what you say
There’s your daughter to put above
Because she looks at you with love
Oh, be careful little mouth what you say.
