  • Yup, not often, but I do. Especially if I'm ticked off.........sometimes it just comes out.

  • I REALLY try not to. Usually if I have had a "few" I let fly a couple H-bombs, but that's it.
    My son is two and we spell a lot of S-H-I-T. :-)

  • Not regularly, I'm usually pretty good with the filter between my head and my mouth. LOL. But I'm not perfect, and every now and again a word slips, I'm only human...

  • I don't curse regardless.

  • Nope, I can control my impulses even in traffic! You will come up with your own little mind game to play with yourself and then it just becomes second nature. In OUR house, we read an article a long time ago that said that if you DO cuss in front of LO's to LOUDLY replace it with a word they will react on quickly and not pay attention to what you actually said. So in our house if someone says b*tch, my DH or I will yell out PEANUT BUTTER! The boys think it's funny! I think if I remember right the article saying that their little brains don't compute as fast as adults, so their attention spans will catch a brighter, louder word rather than the for us! :) PEANUT BUTTER!
