Well I don't like it but I admit that once or twice it has made me laugh. Not because they were cursing but because of the way they said it. Thankfully my kids learned quickly that there are things mommy can do that they can't, like drink coffee or drive the car. :)
yea..... I was a better mother when I was a newer parent. We didn't say stupid, shutup etc... either.... but now that they are older, I actually TELL them to shut up if they aren't listening to the nice requests of "be quiet"... LOL!
Yeah it is embarrassing. My SO had learn to control his potty mouth because my son would be right behind him repeating the words. My DD, now you could cuss in front and she never repeated it.
If we are out and about we just tell the kids those are at home words. They say sorry. However, that rarely happens. I can't think of the last time it did happen. And at home they are free to curse as much as they want.
Last time I cussed in front of the kid was because I stepped on the 3rd hot wheels car of the evening and then kicked my big toe into the couch....His now favorite word is shit. :( And no I am not happy about it especially when he goes to his private christian school and says it. He has gotten better he doesn't use the word at home anymore since he knows better now but at school he will occasionally. Total Parent FAIL.
