We now return to regularly scheduled programming

Of funny monkey stories.

In January, monkey started daycare on campus which meant that he was in the car with me for my entire 55 minute one way commute. Which was fine when he wasn't very talkative or into repeating EVERYTHING you say. However, over the last few months his vocabulary has improved greatly and he becoming a little echo. Which is awesome - unless you're a tired mom at the end of the workday, who becomes a little frustrated with idiot drivers or bikers that aren't safe....
Essentially I used to have a fondess for saying FUCK alot, until my child repeated it back to me in question form as "fruck??". As we were always driving when this happened, I was able to redirect and say yes monkey that is a truck over there (which led to monkeys obsession of trucks) and he has not used the other word.
Until yesterday...

Last night Mr.SM was watching Hometeam play Evil Opposition Team in game 3 of the series. Evil Opposition Team scored a stupid goal which led to hubby getting quite agitated and yelling out FUCK NO. Since monkey is a little echo and was in the room, the repetition began. fuck no? fuck no??
10 minutes later when the third period starts, monkey points at the TV and say fuck fuck fuck!!!!

lucky for me, hometeams name ends with uck, so we will be redirecting monkey again...

Gotta love kids! My sister and brother-in-law were trying to curb their language around my nephew but realized they hadn't been careful enough ... they were in the car one day and my nephew (then ~3yo) was sitting in the back seat, dropped his favorite toy on the floor and very loudly said "oh, for fuck's sake." The combination of his blonde, angelic looks and mild lisp while cursing was apparently an incredible combination. My sister laughed so hard she almost crashed the car!

haha - yeah wouldn't do to have Monkey think that the team name is ....fuck ;)

sounds like one of those times I had with the child of one of my friends... I have never invented so many rods that start [with the equivalent of] fu ... :)

LOL! Yeah, I have friends who've had to modify their language recently too...

I said "fuck" a lot less often last night than during games 1 and (especially) 2. This can only be a good thing.
