The F-word

The daily school commute turned interesting for poor Rob last week when J.T. asked the question. Or one of the key ones anyway:

"Is the F-word a really bad word?"

Rob is shocked. Our 8 year old knows the F-word?! Where did he hear it?

"Why? Where did you hear that?!" he asked.

"William said it."

Rob is thinking we need to have a talk with my sister to let her know that her son has been corrupted (he does have a teenage brother) and is sewing further seeds of corruption and goes on a long spiel about not saying the F-word. J.T is looking at him like he's sprouted Darth Maul horns.... okay maybe not Darth Maul horns because he'd think that was cool.... but otherwise is eyeing him like his father has lost his mind. So much so that Rob is rethinking the conversation and shrewdly, albeit a little late in the game, asks:

"What does the F-word rhyme with?"

J.T. thinks a minute and says: "Art?"

Ashy did this to me too when she reported that her cousins had said the 'f' word. Turned out to be the same one.

Don't expect the same innocence from the second child - for some reason they put it all together much faster!

JT's F-word is the B-word in our house, due to the Cherub calling them barts.

When the kids in Prep taught Climber the F-word his version would have rhymed with clucken.

I was 8 years old when I asked my Mom what "f**k" meant just as we happened to be walking by two little old ladies in a store. Judging by the looks they gave my Mom I just knew that it must be a very scary word, probably had something to do with vampires of werewolves...imagine my surprise. No cousins enlightened me I read if off the wall in the men's bathroom.

Ha, love it. Just goes to've got to check.

PL whistled and said "Sexy!" the other day. I said what does sexy mean? He says "I don't know, but I know you say it when you whistle".

I've been told by my three year old that "stupid is a F word"

OMG this is so funny...and could have been in our house. I remember when Lucio thought the F word was FREAK. Seriously. I was so disturbed when he told me he knew the F word...then proceeded to whisper FREAK. Funny. Unfortunately he now knows the REAL F word...and told me recently that there are in fact two really bad F words....the one we all know and love...and FREAKIN'.
obviously a cousin of FREAK.
