I Know I've Said Too Much When...

...My kids keep asking where all the Indians are when we’re driving down the street. I finally realized, once I started paying attention to what I was saying as I was driving, they were looking for the Idiots. As in, “Get out of my way, you Idiot.” Or, “Hang up your phone and drive, you Idiot.” Or, “Look at this Idiot. He shouldn’t even be allowed on the road.”

...Jack, who was two years old at the time, responded to my statement that it was time for bed with, “Oh, Dammit. I didn’t even get to watch a movie.”

...I hear Luke telling his stuffed animals, “I’m sorry. I gave you your choice and you made your decision. It's time out for you.” Is that how I sound? Shudder.

...At Grant’s Farm, Luke runs from the goat eating his shirt saying, “What the hell?”

.copy.paste.to.my.blog. I'll have to be more careful in the car too! I noticed the other day that Miss K asked a question about what I was babbling about... I had been grumbling about an idiot driver!

And yes, they reprimand their dolls too!

Ah yes, I too have been cursed with my children's regurgitations of phrases uttered from my own lips.

KEEP BELIEVING

Hahahahaha! My kids call everyone "slow poke" because of me. The worst, though, was when we got the note home from Jack's kindergarten teacher:
"Dear Mr. and Mrs. H,
I've asked Jack not to use the word 'freakin'' in the classroom.
Mrs. J"
At least is wasn't the real "f" word.

I heard my older son, when he was about 5, yelling at his 3 year old brother "How many times do I have to tell you to clear up your lego??"

love the goat one. And the time out senario has totally happened here and I cringe too.

Ugh! They are like sponges, indeed. They let out these things at the most appropriate (or you might say inappropriate) times!

Bug's first word was Sh!#. Nuff said. LOL! Well, actually, now I'm going to have to post that story since you've reminded me of it! I'll put it in the queue. Thanks!

Yep. My two year old said Holy Crap! The other day, we don't curse, like at all around the kids, not like we try not to, just never do somehow, but crap is our one vice. I think its cute.

on the idiot/indian thing. i grew up in a tourist town, and my dad would drive around muttering about the damn tourists. i asked him what a tourist was, and then until i was about 11 i thought "tourist" was a type of turkey.

I can relate to this one. I have overheard the kids scolding toys too. My son has his own words though that I don't say, so I wonder who else I need to tell to watch his/her mouth?!
