So, my 2 year old son has called my oldest boy a bitch twice in two days. I think it might be time to tone down my potty mouth just a little. They hear all the things i say when i don't think they are listening and hear none of the things i want them to hear.
Last night the boys were running from one end of the house to the other and this is what i heard.
Fire Ball: "You can't catch me Beefcake."
Beefcake:"I'm going to get you bitch"
I swear to god this is what i heard, i know this is bad and I'm a really terrible mother not only for my two year old saying the word bitch but for laughing hysterically before stopping him to tell him that its a bad word.
Fire Ball: "Beefcake called me that bad word again"
Me: "What bad word"
I really had already forgotten about the night before.
Fire Ball: "You know, bitch"
Me: "oh, that bad word. Well, were you acting like one?"
As the words were coming out of my mouth i totally winced, knowing full well what i just said was not OK.
Fire Ball: "yes i was, but that's not the point! He's not supposed to say bad words."
Has it really come to this??? My 3 year old is giving me parenting advice. I really am a lucky mama, to have such a funny, smart, loving little boy as my own and to keep me from failing completely as a mom. I am also lucky and blessed to have another beautiful, smart, pain the the ass son who is just like me.
