Cruz Says: What Parents Should Not Say

It's no surprise that I let out the occasional swear word.

It's also no surprise that Nick does as well.

When Cruz got to the point of comprehending, Nick & I had a serious conversation about watching our potty mouths and being more cognizant of what we say.

I thought we were doing okay.

'Thought' being the key word.

Until we came home from out little Chicago getaway and Cruzer & I were running some errands on Sunday night. We swung by the storage unit because Nick was finally grabbing our faux Christmas tree, so we could put it up for approximately one week before our holiday travel starts on Saturday.

Cruz & I were driving home after seeing daddy and he just blurts out, "mama, I just don't know what the f*cken is wrong with my daddy."

I literally had to stifle a laugh. It was so clear that I didn't even have to ask him what he said.

I told him not to say that word and he replied, "but my daddy says it."

I said, "what do you mean, what does daddy say?"

Cruz responds, "f*cken. Daddy says f*cken all the time."

Houston. We have a problem.

I chose to ignore it. That's what we parents do, right? Ignore things we don't want our kids to do/say in hopes it won't be repeated?

Well, that's what I did.

And he used it two more times that night. In full context. Completely accurate.

I'm still choosing to ignore it.

In hopes that it will go away...far, far away.

And on that note...some holiday snaps from a trip to the local nursery and our Angels Among Us Angels Flix/Day w/ Santa a couple weeks ago.

Because these are cute. And saying the word "f*cken" is not.

  1. Oh dear....You are definitely not alone in this issue. Although I dont have personal experience with it, my husband and I have to be extra careful when we are around our nieces and nephew (who range from 8-14 now).
    Some friends of ours have a 3 and 5 year old and told us this story about how the oldest dropped her milk in the car and spilled it and she goes "I dropped by f***ing milk" and they were like "oh no..." haha.

  2. Oh boy. David calls fire trucks fire f*cks. Over and over. Everyone thinks it's most hysterical so he says it even when there are no f*cks around. He also told me to shut up the other day soooo. We have a big problem.

  3. Oh dear!!! Sounds like you are going to have your hands full as he gets older - but then again you already knew that!! Looking at his face, I'd probably let it slide too! LOL! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. Oh dear! I will have a talk with Cruzers Papa and uncle too about using that word! On the other hand, love the reindeer and Santa pics!

  5. Oh my gosh!!! Thank you for the laugh - this was too funny! Especially because he's sooo adorable and has no idea what he's saying!

  6. BAHAHAHAAHAH! I'm so sorry I'm laughing, but oh my goodness this is too funny! Kids are too cute!!!!

  7. HAHAHAHA...this totally cracks me up!! There is something kiiinda cute about a little 3 year old saying the "F" word, tho...right??

  8. I have no idea how you contained your laugh! And hey, it's Daddy's fault, right?!!?

  9. HAHAHA!!! I'm laughing out loud, people are always telling Adam and I (mostly me) that we need to clean up our language in front of her... and we do, we've talked about it also but I'm sure that Scarlett will be uttering some potty language in her time ;)

  10. LOL OMG!!! I seriously can't help but laugh when kids curse. I know I shouldn't but it's too funny sometimes! At least he picked it up from daddy and not you! :)

  11. Hahahaha oh no! I would've had a hard time not laughing either! The things kids learn -- they're so very observant!

  12. This is the best thing I have read all day! Is it terrible that this makes me want to have kids ASAP?!


  13. omg i would have laughed but i know that's the wrong thing to do!!

  14. Oh no!!!!! Girl, I am so sure one day Mason will utter a bad word and I am going to be screwed.
    Oh, and that reindeer picture... SO CUTE.

  15. OH EM GEE! How did you not DIE laughing?! Kenley has already unleashed an "aw shit", so we are in the same boat over here. I regrettably told Jason that after two years, it's finally time to turn off the 2pac. DAMNIT.

  16. omg omg omg. that's hysterical. so...i'm nearly positive kaye said the other night, "oh f*ck. oh f*ck. oh f*ck." three times. it was hysterical. the only downfall is that she didn't learn it from her was definitely from my foul foul mouth. uh oh.


Your comments make me smile! Thanks for taking the time to share some love =)
