Does your your pre-schooler mimic you?

Stuck in a traffic jam earlier today, my 3.5 year-old daughter says, "That idiot needs to move!!" lol -- I couldn't even ask her WHERE she learned that word -- because I know where -- FROM ME! I couldnt help but laugh as I told her not to say that!

Has your child ever said something learned from you (that you wish they hadn't)???

  • Oh yeah. I don't have to say anything while driving anymore because my son says it for me. Thankfully he doesn't curse (I worked really hard on that so I wouldn't do it around him, a couple slip ups, but not enough that he repeats it). His favorite is "dude, are you serious?!" Apparently I say that A LOT!

  • I'll be the first to admit, I've got a potty mouth. I can usually control my language in front of my son, but sometimes, you know... a word just slips out. And of COURSE those are the words he hears and repeats! Kid never listens, except when I don't want him to!
    He picks up the worst things from his dad though... the other day in the tub, he grabbed his little boy parts (I should say that my son is not even THREE yet) and said that it was big!!
