Watch Your Mouth

Is it wrong that I let my child say inappropriate things because it amuses me? Probably. Oh well, too late.

Carter was an early talker, and he's a very verbal child. He's also part parrot because he'll repeat anything and everything you say. This is very dangerous...but sometimes very funny. I've never been good at 'watching my mouth', but I'm gonna have to start making a serious effort. I don't want Carter going to preschool and telling the teacher "I can't friggin stand you."

The thing about it is, you never know just when your words are going to come back and bite you. Its not always right after you say it.

When Grant was a baby and would cry Carter would run up to him and say "Aw! COME ON!" Number one on my 'to do' list? Be more nurturing towards the baby. Number two? Try not to say "I"m going to kill you!" to the dogs...cause that's not super cute coming from a two year old either.

My husband is no better.

One morning when I was changing Carter's diaper he pointed down and kindly reminded me "Don't touch your balls." Wow. Thank you, that's really good life advice. I say a lot of things, but I'm pretty sure I've never said that. MICHAEL!

  1. First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which
    I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a
    tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
