What the Puck did you just say?

My sweet daughter Maggie just told me I was, "Full of crap!"
No she did not learn this from me!  What kind of parent do you think I am! 

Wow judgemental much?

She learned the saying "full of crap" from one of her 3 big brothers I'm sure, who may or may not have over heard me telling their father that. 
Which certainly can't be entirely my fault because...
1) Their father is often full of crap!
2) Who could possibly keep track of four kids at all times?

HELLO I'm not Nanny McPhee!

Yes, I guess you could argue that as a parent I should watch my mouth at all times and that would be far easier.  But whats the fun in that?

I waited all these years to become an adult and do adult stuff like cuss only to have kids and have to watch my mouth again!
Forget that, after all the soap I ate as a kid I earned the right to cuss Damnit!

Come now I'm not that bad, I have toned it down a lot.  

When Maggie was 2 I thought she was really into toy ships because she talked about them a lot.

She'd drop her tipsy cup ..."Ship."
She'd break her color crayon..."Oh Ship!"
She'd stub her toe... "Ship! Ship! Ship!"

Well you might misunderstand her meaning and take if for something else so I don't say "Ship" anymore or anything that could be misunderstood as "ship"....see good mommy. 

And I sure in the hell don't ever say "Tuck" or "Fruck" or "duck"  cuz that would be just nucking futs!  

But we do have a dog named "Buck" So if you should over hear my daughter yelling something that rhymes with "puck"..she's just calling the dog....
and not repeating what she overheard her mommy say when her mommy saw the cost of gas last week. 
Maggie can still be a little hard to understand sometimes.  So your understanding and not your judgement would be greatly appreciated.

I do try really hard to raise good kids, so when my now darling little 3 year old tells me I'm "full of Crap" it makes me sad. 

Not because she said the word "crap"...
But because she's right about me being full of it!

Hey, stranger! When my daughter was 2, she went through a phase of saying what sounded like "fork." It took me awhile to realize what she was trying to say. I didn't teach her that word! We had been on vacation, and she overheard other people saying it while watching me cringe. She caught on fast that it was a cool word! Yikes!

Hahahaha - this is so good! I must say that there is something rather ominous yet exceedingly conventional about this. It is ominous because it is yet another symbol that you, as a parent, have realised that whether you like it or not your child is growing up. She, like you, will learn to cuss the hell out of EVERYTHING in the not too distant future. Having said that though, the joy this brought to me reading it and probably you writing it has allowed you to enjoy a moment of her childhood and her innocence.

I think you are being the best a parent can be by letting your child be the best thing she can be - by the sounds of it - an adorable child! Enjoy her childhood and cherish these moments!

Much love,

Jackson L.

Oh, how I miss you!!! I'm laughing with tears right now . . . nucking fut??? Your crack me up, my dear! I needed this!!! hugs to you . . . and write more, when you can. It's good for me and yes, it's all about me . . . ;) (blogger is being all goofy right now - it keeps telling me that I am anonymous. It's me, Leanne from chaos comes happiness, but maybe I should go with the mysterious side and not give out who I am. Ah, well. I've spilled the beans.)

It's a common thing to have little 3/4/5 year olds come into school saying the same thing as your daughter. Fun part is teaching them that just because you can say it at home doesn't mean you can say it at school.
It also gives ya some fun stories to tell the other teachers during lunch break.

It could be worse: my mom had me use the word "oink" as a child, instead of "fart."

It seems your whole family is good at getting around swearing or using distasteful words much better than mine was. Kudos!
