On the way to school this morning, I asked G what she had just said to her brother.
She replied that she told him that she was spraying herself with "loser retardant"
I was relieved.
I thought she had called her brother retarded.
I said to them that that was one of the few forbidden words in our household.
I said they could say, "shit, fuck and asshole" to their hearts content. They could use those words in any variation they liked.
I let the kids swear. I think I have talked about this on here before. They are only allowed to do it at home or in the car, in the company of immediate family.
B and I have taught the kids that swearing is an art and a privilege, and I will say that when in the mood, their way with those words is breathtaking
They just better not use the word retarded.
