Swear of Mispronunciation part III

Part I Part II
Swear of Mispronunciation:
noun. A word that a child mispronounces, and ends up coming out as a swear word.

OK, I'm trying to tread extremely careful with what I'm about to say. It's funny, but hard to write (or read) without blushing.

The other night, we had pizza and breadsticks for dinner. I know, I know. Bad mommy. But stay with me.

Viking Toddler comes up to me (and get ready to blush), and said, "I found my d*ck."

"What?" I asked, wondering where he heard such a word. I decided that surely I must be misunderstanding him.

"My d*ck," he repeated.

No, that can't possibly be what he's saying...could it?

He walked over to the table, picked up a breadstick and announced, "D*ck."

Oh.

"No, honey. That's a stick. A stick."

All I'm going to say is...awesome! I love it when little ones are innocently communicating with "obscene" words. I loved every second it took me to read this blog. Being a Mom of two boys, I completely understand, but being the ONLY girl in the house, I don't blush about anything. Ha!

My son likes to loudly talk about c*cks. Y'know, those things on the wall with the hand and numbers that tell time?

And one of our friends' kids was constantly yelling "Daddy, f**k!" in restaurants whenever she wanted to use her fork all by herself.

Ah. Good times.
