Uncharted Territory

Here is the thing I’ve learned about little brothers.

They are always watching. Always absorbing like little sponges.

They see and hear everything. They want to grow up fast and be just like their older brother.

I know this because my two year knows a swear word. A bad one. Not a cute little one but a real one.

And he uses a it in perfect context. Daily.

He must have learned it from YouTube or older kids at the park or…um…his dad. I don’t know.

As his parents we correct, ignore, replace it with truck, try not to giggle, or react, get mad and so on.

We’ve tried it all.

And he still says it. And boy is he proud of his big boy word.

He says it when he drops his cup of milk and when he’s standing in line at Target, and when his brother’s friends are over to play.

He says it when Grandma is near and when his dinosaurs are pretend playing.

There is something about a little angelic blonde haired boy saying a swear word.

You can almost see the horns growing out of his head. Conflicting with his angel wings.

My perfect parent card has been crumpled up and thrown in the garbage.

Anyone else’s kids learn a swear word as a toddler? We never had this with our other two. We have entered uncharted territory!

Please, I need some funny stories.
