My daughter got in trouble at daycare for saying...

When my husband went to pick her up, the babysitter said she used 'the naughty B word' today, and served a time out and didn't get to participate in the egg hunt.

I asked dd about it, she said "I'm not allowed to do my silly talk anymore".
 
She's 4.  And she didn't really mean to say it.  Sometimes when she's playing and does this "silly talk" where she makes up rhyming words, like twirl, burl, curl, FLURL!!

Well she must have said something like "twitch, fitch, witch, nitch, BITCH".

 Should I offer an explanation to the babysitter or just drop it?

Suggestions?

I would certainly explain this to the sitter.

I would give the explanation and tell your daughter not to rhyme with twitch. ;)

I would talk to the sitter. If she was rhyming she probably had no idea what she was saying. If she has heard the word, then same on the person who taught it to her.

Yes, explain to the sitter what you believe happened. That's sad your daughter had to miss the egg hunt. :-(

Explain things to your daughter, but also to the babysitter. It sounds like an innocent mistake on your daughters part.

They would have known if she was playing a rhyming game.  I'd mention it and ask the context of the comment.

I've never heard her say a naughty word on purpose.  She did the rhyming thing another time at home and said 'fuck'. And I said oh honey that word is not nice, some people might think you're being rude if you say that word.
I guess I just worry that the sitter is going to think I'm making it up lol...but I know my kid and when she told me that she isn't allowed to do silly talk anymore I knew what happened.  Now she thinks rhyming is bad -_-;;

If it were me I'd drop it. I remember when I was in daycare I got in trouble for telling an older boy, who was picking on me, btw, to go suck an egg. I was like 3-4 tops.
