I'm so ashamed of my daughter. She is so sweet, so cute, yet what came out of Miss Kitty's mouth as she sat with dad eating breakfast?
"Holy SH-- we have a lot of bread." As she looked at the full bread box. He asked her "what did you say?" and she knew enough not to repeat it:(
What did we do? Well, she was told if she ever said that again she was getting her mouth washed out with soap. Just the suggestion made her look a little green around the gills, so I think it did the trick.
Now where did she get that? WELL........I've heard many a story from school about a young man named "Nick" this year and none of them have been in a good context.
MOM- it was NOT me, I still recall the taste of soap that you DID put in my mouth.
Over the years I have often entertained maintaining my children's innocence by Home Schooling and then I come back to my reality, I am not able to pull that off. A good mother knows her limitations and admits them, I can not home school. I am jealous of all the wonderful homeschooling mommas out there, my hat is off to you.
But then when I hear my little ones who just started off in the hard cruel and dirty world come home with a potty mouth I feel so inadequate for not homeschooling. Our first son, now 24 years old, came home from kindergarten and wanted to know at bath time what "balls" were. That was my first dose of kindergarten teachings. I wanted to cry as I tried hard not to laugh. Because it's funny but it's really not.
My expertise must be nursing sick children since I took a leave of my senses and signed up Pip and Em to have their tonsils out tomorrow together, as in both of them. This should be interesting. Hopefully all will go well and they will have some relief of the constant illnesses they have had. We are to arrive at 6:45 AM- me and 2 kids, I think they are going to go in their jammies, have I mentioned I'm not really an early morning person either? Ughhh, 6:45am!!
Fund update-- it always cracks me up when I post "oh it's 4 percent" and before I know it, it's double that!! Yep, 8% and growing. Thank you AGAIN- can't stop saying it, because we mean it!! I can just see God up above amused at me because I see that percent go up and every time I shake my head in amazement at His warriors at work, little by little getting it covered for our boys to come.
BTW, I saw my crocus flowers are sprouted up at least an inch today- I declare spring is HERE!! Ha ha ha Mr. Phil the Groundhog:)
