Out of the Mouths of Babes

I feel compelled to warn you that the following post contains some modified curse words (I'm talking to you Aunt Mary ;-)), and I don't want anyone to feel like they weren't cautioned about the content. Soooo, I was driving in the car with Lucas and a lady (who was talking on her cell phone) cut us off making a left hand turn and very nearly got us in a car accident. I was furious and yelled out "Get off your damn cell phone and pay attention, you jacka**!" Of course my little sweetie in the back seat stuck right up for me and yelled out "You jacka**!) I tried my hardest not to smile and told him it wasn't a nice word, and I shouldn't have used it and neither should he. Lucas said "sowwy (sorry) Mommy...short pause...but I didn't say assh***! I would just like to take a moment to state that I am not the one who taught him that word, but I won't point any fingers, either! What can you do? I thanked him politely for not using either word, and we continued on our way! Definitely need to remember he's like a little sponge...

I'm so glad to see you keepin' it real. I'm sure aunt mary can handle it, she did work with convicts after all.

Lucas did exactly what 'early 3s' will do...a reminder and a wake-up call for all of us! I'm most grateful you avoided a collision; talking on a cellphone while driving is a recipe for disaster. Keep smilin'!
