Naughty phrases

A conversation I had with Jack at the end of last week -

Jack: “Mama, is it okay if I say ‘What the heck?!’?

Me: “No, that’s not really a nice thing for you to say.”

Jack: “Oh, okay.”

Moments later….

Jack: “Mama, is it okay if I just say ‘What the?!’?"

Me: (thinking that might just be worse than the first) “No, Jack. That’s not really a nice thing to say either."

Fastforward to Sunday afternoon - We are on our way home from church when we ran across this:random 035 Me: (being the city girl that I am) “What the heck? Why are there cows in the road?”random 036 Oops…my thoughts exactly Mr. Moo-Cow.

Oh I am cracking up so hard. Once I said C-R-A-P and my daughter said Mom crabs live at the beach. Whew, got away that time.

what the heck WERE those cows doing in the road???
I probably would have said much worse...my girls ONLY ever paid attention to what I said if it was something ugly (then they would say "Mommy says it")
Funny Jack!

I'm not sure what I'd say if none of those were options and if I definitely couldn't say the other one rolling through my mind. Love that second shot. Too funny!

Suzanne said...

So funny! Jax asked me this morning if he could say "shoot".. I said no of course... i'm not sure where he even got that! I say Oh my word all the time, it's so funny when he says it all dramatic like - just like me!

Great cow pics!

Stacey said...

lol hey those are my cows who break out of my farmtown game fences all the time! lol

My bad word is crap, and Chase has picked up "Rap" from that. So now we are trying to just keep saying "rap" and divert from the other word...

Becca said...

hahaha I KNOW I'm going to do that when Jayci gets old enough to realize (maybe I should start practicing now . . .)

Newberry said...

Too funny! It's so sweet that he asked you if he could say it. What a good boy. Wouldn't it be nice if they would do that when they get older? :)

Heidi said...

i'm just totally distracted by the dirt road that you are traveling on! LOL

Baloney said...

My 10 y.o. keeps saying What the ?!

Drives me crazy!
But at school the kids say it all the time. I think you hear it so often it will eventually become part of your vocab.

Still forbidden in this house, though.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...So funny!

Life with Kaishon said...

Oh my gosh! SO so funny!

And what is even more funny, or perhaps disturbing, are your roads. WHAT IN THE WORLD! Are they dirt roads. Do you live on a dirt road?

I think you can be the new Pioneer Woman. : )

Don't hate me but I say what the heck all the time! And also, Oh my gosh! I know it is bad. I am trying to quit. If you heard the things the kids that I work with say you would DIE!

I am so bad about saying that! My kids learned "What the?!?" from Spongebob of all places. Weston started saying it when he was 3 and it drove me crazy trying to figure out where he got that from. :)

Jenny said...

ahahahaha, that is so funny. I am bad about saying cuss words in front of Bub, and then I get "you know that's a bad word Mom".

misty said...

i have had the same conversation with my 5 year old but no cows in the middle of the road here!!! that is too funny!!!

Amber said...

LOL how funny! Atleast he asked if he could say it, Courtney just says things sometimes and doesnt think twice about it (she said Gosh Dangit the other day and I was NOT happy about that at all.)
