Children seldom misquote. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said.


Well Halloween was fun. Megan was HSM cheerleader and Rebecca was Sharpay. Casey was DEAD Hannah Montana (Becca wanted to be DEAD Gabriella). Boy o Boy Did they get a lot of CANDY!

So anywho to get on with why I picked that quote. Megan has started to use this little phrase in place of what she used to say that should never have said. Confusing right? Well, read on.

Yesterday Matt was walking into the kitchen. And this is what he heard. "Megan stop it!" "Shut up Becca Stupid B-WORD! STUPID STUPID B-WORD!" Now a few months ago I heard Megan call Becca a Stupid F**king B*@%H! Man did I pull out the soap and corner trick on that one. So I calmly explained why she shouldn't say that. What is meant, etc, etc, etc. That was it nothing else was said (in our ear shot). That is until yesterday. She has stopped saying the full word and started to replace it with B-WORD. She still got soap. She still got the corner. But how do you punish the child for the blame of the parents or other adults in her life.

I can remember one time when I was little and getting in trouble for shouting "Shut the Damn Door!" Whilst playing house with my sister and friends. I never said it again. (They made soap a little more putrid back then). But I cannot recall ever replacing the words with a hyphenated cousin.

It makes you wonder about what you really say day in and day out. Suddenly I have this insane urge to go and suck on a bar of soap.
