Ok moms I know most of us use em.

But we can't curse infront of the kiddo.

What words or made up words do you use in the heat of the moment with children around.

I say oh fart unstead of you know the f word.
And when I get hurt I tend to yell sucka.

  • Well, I generally curse like Ned Flanders anyway, but one my kids picked up on at an early age was "Fudge Nuggets!" (or, as said by a three year old, "Budge nugges!"

    Other KateD exclamations are: "Doodlebug!" "Pickle!" and "Crimanitly!"

  • banana oil. I remember reading that Wild Bill made Annie Oakley use that instead of a swear word.

  • I don't censore much - I know, bad mom. But if it's really bad I'll just scream at the top of my lungs, or roll out a bunch of mumbo-jumbo - flibbertyflibbermorphyblipper...or whatever.

  • sugarpuffs for sh--
    fudge for f---

    I have to really fight hard to not say the real thing. my DH has a child from a previous relationship and already swears as it is. we don't use curse words around the kid so Lord only knows where he picked it up.

  • We learned in high school PE class to say the name of a vegetable instead of using a "bad" word. I"m still saying tomato or squash. My kids think I'm crazy!

  • I'm very mild in my language since having kids. I'll say "darn" or "hush!" or "oh poo!" but that's about as extreme as it gets.
