We all cuss like sailors.
I do try to keep my language in check but there are just moments where an expletive is necessary.
Stub your toe? OH MY MOTHERFUCKING GOD THAT HURT LIKE A MOTHERFUCKER!!
Burn your hand on the oven? OW! SON OF A BITCH THAT FUCKER WAS HOT! (Duh. It IS an oven)
Plus there are the "Fuck that and fuck this and fuck you's" that happen more than occasionally.
So it is actually quite amazing that Kaylee hasn't said any cuss words before now.
So is it wrong that I thought it was completely hilarious when she dropped her first F-bomb the other night?
I know. The parent in me should have been all "Blah blah blah. You shouldn't cuss. Those words are bad. Yadda yadda yadda."
But you know what?
She already knows that fuck is a bad word. Trust me. Randall and I have tried to get her to say bad words just to see if she would or not. And she would not say them. Not even with promises of ice cream or candy or even money. She would refuse.
Randall has said more than once that she is a good girl. . . But I told him. I told him that even though she doesn't say them? She is thinking them.
She is thinking them and filtering herself when she talks.
Except for the other night when she was talking to her Daddy about all of his hospital visits.
"Why would you go back there? They fuc. . ."
"Oh my gosh I am SO sorry!" As she ran from the room and into the bathroom where she started to cry.
Bless her heart.
I guess she thought we were going to snatch her up and wash her mouth out.
I could do nothing but giggle.
And Randall sat there with his mouth open. . . In shock.
We may have even did long distance high-fives from across the room. . .
But neither of us were angry.
I know that cuss words are bad. I get it. But I am not going to punish my kid over a word. Especially a word that she hears several times throughout the day.
I am not going to punish her for letting her guard down and being unfiltered.
Does that make me a bad parent? Probably.
You know what? I really don't care.
I have raised her fairly well in the ten years she has been on this earth.
No one is perfect. We all have faults.
Mine just happens to be thinking that my kid cussing is funny as all get out.
You can like it or lump it. Either way is fine with me.
