OH Noooooo! The long dreaded parroting potty mouth has arrived. Time for me to choose my words more wisely. The other morning we're cooking & I'm cutting a recipe by half & messed up one of the measurements, "Oh, Shit" & my little sous chef looked at me & spouted "OH, ssHIT, mama!" I cringed. Sure, it could have been far worse considering my language is often not kiddie friendly, tightening the reigns on my potty mouth will be no easy task, but I have no other option. There are several words I need to immediately delete from my vocabulary, some of them not vulgar or used maliciously, but they're inappropriate & I certainly wouldn't want my sweet 3 foot parrot to unknowingly hurt someones feelings because of my inability to lead by example. Here is the beginning of my list, I'm sure my tongue will reveal others to be added but, off the top of my head here's the start of the end...
F Word in it's F form and full form
I can do this!
Ready. Set. GO!
