A Massive Slice of Humble Pie!

In the last few days I have overheard these gems from the mouth of my three year old son,

  1. 'For Goodness Sake!'
  2. 'You're driving me bonkers' (though he pronounces it more like Bonters)
  3. 'I'm a bit busy right now Eli'
  4. 'You have got to be kidding me'
  5. 'Friggin' hell'

Why the massive slice of humble pie? Simply because I am the source of all of those things, not The Simpsons, not playgroup and I can't even lay the blame for this at Rob's door. It's all just me!

I'd like to hastily point out that number 5 was a result of burning myself in the oven and not a common phrase I use, it only ever pops out if I burn myself or stub a toe and then surely it's justifiable? Right?

My kids have picked up some sweet things from me, too.

It makes me feel bad. But then I get so frustrated it pops out again. . .

Oh the joy of children. I never knew that children really do have hidden antennae in their heads to capture all of those sweet things that we say. And the inflection in our voices as well.

"Son of a...." is a common one. Thankfully the ...stays that way!

Are you kidding me right now?!

Children are too sweet, mine wait until the grocery store , church or other public places to regurgitate my 'pleasant' motherly statements.

Don't you love that kids are such copy cats? It's gets me in trouble all the time!
