A Conversation with Pie

Pie: Hey, Mom?

Me: Yeah, buddy?

Pie: Am I allowed to say "What the hell?"

Me: I would prefer that you didn't. It's kinduva grownups-only thing to say. It's rather inappropriate for a five-year-old like you.

Pie: But I can still say "Friggin", right?

Me: Um, I guess...

Pie: Well then, I can hardly wait until I'm old enough to say "FRIGGIN HELL!!"

Now this begs the question: What age CAN you say "Friggin Hell!" at?

I happen to teach Max to saying "f*cking hell" right before a birthday party. He spent the entire time marching around, sing-songing, "F*cking hell, f*cking hell..."

Not one of my better Mummy Moments.

My daughter has tested out such lovely sayings as "screw you" and "douchebag". The former she heard from older cousins, the latter from kids at school. She said them quite pleasantly, but knew from the looks on our faces and sharp intake of breath that she was in TROUBLE.

"WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!?!?!" she panicked, both times LOL.

And for what it is worth, she thinks the "eff" word is fricken!

Ah, yes. I remember this story, and still laugh at it. For anyone else perusing these archives like me, I'll make mention of my daughter pointing out the window and yelling "F#CKERS!" (fireworks), and then several years later proclaiming "I wish fireflies weren't so damn smart." (She was 6 for that last one, I believe.)

Children grow up so fast, don't they? Brings a tear to your eye, and a stitch in your sides.
