{The Tale in Which This Mama’s Child Uses Profanity}

Let’s just call this post a continuation of yesterdays post.

I left some of you hanging about what I found when I got home.

I should tell you that I was pleasantly surprised to see that Jeff had scraped most of the paint off of my jeans. They are not completely ruined, my friends.

And next, a tale.

The tale of the mama who tried to keep a straight face, but couldn’t when her paint culprit used profanity in a big way.

The tale goes that a frustrated little boy was playing with his older brother. His older brother was teasing him. The little brother started shaking he was so madΒ at his brother so he screamed, “Garrett……….you, you, you BASTARD”.

This mama was shocked into laughing out loud, {and by re-telling the story used profanity on her blog for the first time}.

Shame on us.

This mama couldn’t believe it though.

Honestly, we are not profanity users.

I know where he got it though. I blame Dumb and Dumber.

    You are the silliest girl EVAH! I’m like the ORIGINAL reader and commenter. I INVENTED reading and commenting on Seven Clown Circus! Sadly, I always think I’ll send you an email, or stalk you on FB instead of leaving my words here. Why you ask? I have no stinkin’ clue. You better sneak in some time for the Roms if you head North! Can you tell your kids to stop growing until then? I’d like a chance to catch up to them…………{Your second baby is 8??? Whatevs…..}

      Ah ha. I knew I could eventually MAKE you come to see me. We are hoping to stop through your parts this summer. I will let you know well in advance. πŸ™‚ Put that growth stopper on your kids for me, OKAY DOKEY?

      Since you are the reason I started my blog it’s required you comment at least quarterly. πŸ™‚

    I am laughing with you….HARD. There’s something funnier than disturbing about the particular word he used. I would have probably LOL too if that was Tristan. So far, his worst word has been turd. But the day will come, I am waiting…

    Yep. Laughter here too. And I am a profanity user, unfortunately. But I do try not too. The good/bad thing is that I ALWAYS know where my kid heard it.

    hehehe! At least he used it in the right context. When I was 15 I worked at the Y with 5 and unders. One day I had to close a door so this little boy would not go into a room. He turned around and yelled “f#%k you” I was so SHOCKED to hear this out of a four year olds mouth I just started laughing. We had to tell his parents and she said he had a older brother who road the bus…oh well. At least he used it in the right context too!!

    Haha. Now I have to wonder if I have ever swore on my blog. I think I may have πŸ™ I try to keep it clean as my grandma does read my blog. LOL.

    Props to your hubby. He must know the value of said jeans…Haha I guess now you have the worn in jeans, Maybe cut a small wear mark on the knee and you will be super Hollywood!

    Woo-hoo for saving those jeans!!! And I am cracking up over your story today. I have been known to accidentally let a curse word slip and I am just waiting until it catches up with me and I hear it out of a 4 year-old’s mouth….I’m sure I will have to blog about it πŸ™‚

    YAY!!!! The jeans are saved. Great for u.

    LOL @ your son saying that. Not condoning it or anything but that’s funny that out of his frustration he said that. Hey, he could’ve said way worse than that word.

    Have a good one hun. πŸ™‚

    Haha!! too funny!Glad your jeans are not ruined!! I have a worse one!When my son was about 16 and driving me nuts!! I lost it and called him a Bast@@2! He stopped and said,”oh really Mom?”Yikes I couldn’t help but break out laughing!!

    Oh My! Seriously – my daughter just used the words SHUT UP the other day while talking to her MOTHER (that would be me) and I was completely dumbfounded. I thought and thought and thought where on EARTH did she hear that?! And then it dawned on me…..we let the kids watch Annie for the first time a few weekends ago…..and so it goes. I swear (ha!) kids can pick up the LITTLEST words in movies – it’s amazing they actually use them in the correct context after hearing them just once.

    You are such a good mom for not wringing his neck. Believe me, I would have come close! Glad the pants were salvagable, and it was an easy clean up! The basement is finally put back together, and thanks a ton…you really did make me laugh!

  11. 128


    lol, that’s funny! I wouldn’t say in this case it’s profanity…just funny. πŸ™‚ I think you’re still considered profanity free.

  12. 131


    I have to admit that I find in mildly funny when little kids use profanity. You know, when they aren’t really sure what they are saying.

    I’m glad the jeans were saved. But you know, you could just pretend you are this really cool artistic chick when you wear them. πŸ™‚

    I’ve also found myself in situations with my kids where I should not have laughed but could not help myself. Sometimes the laughter diffuses the situation, though, and we’re better able to “teach” afterwards. πŸ™‚

    Once Mr. J (after a visit with some more *colorful* family members) was about 2.5 & I told him we had no more apple juice. He calmly looked at me, kicked his feet at the ground and said “Sh*t, no more apple juice” in his tiny little voice. I couldn’t help but laugh, it was too hard not too πŸ˜€ So I understand, sometimes you have to laugh if not what can you do?

    Glad your jeans are salvaged! I think we can blame media for most of what our kids know….after all my teen only believes it if she reads it online or Hannah Montana says it’s so!

  16. 137


    THANK God the jeans have been saved LOL πŸ™‚

    Oh ya on the word bastard I blame that darn cartoon, the one that says I killed Kenny? My boys are now 15 and 14 and I so wish that was the only word they used now. If I told you what they say now your ears would bleed LOL… annoying.. hello I am the only one that is allowed to speak that way dang it! They are taking my thunder away from me πŸ™‚
