Sometimes, I think that my sons are growing up too quickly. For instance, Sean and I recently had the following conversation:
Sean: Do you love me?
Me: Yes. Of course I love you.
Sean: Why do you love me?
Me: Because you’re my baby.
Sean: I’m not your baby. I’m your son!
(Whatever. He was, is and always will be my baby. They grow up so quickly!)
At other times, I’m so amazed and in awe of their youthful innocence. Like, when Michael defined the “n” word for me…
Michael: Oooh! Sean said the “n” word.
Me: Really? (I automatically scanned my mind to figure out where my 2 year old might have heard the word.)
Sean: No, I didn’t!
Me: So, what is the “n” word?
Michael: (whispering) Nerd
After stifling a giggle (because their dad really doesn’t like the words “geek” or “nerd”), I asked him were there any other letter words that I should know. There were (of course). Without fail, each word was way different than the original words that popped into my (old, corrupted) mind. Below are Michael’s six letter words:
1. The “A” word = Annoyed
2. The “B” word = Bad
3. The “H” word = (I) hate you!
4. The “J” word = Jerk
5. The “N” word = Nerd
6. The “S” word = Shut up!
I love my kids. They always keep me on my toes.
Does your kid have any special “letter” words?
