The S Word

SWhen the granddaughter was in kindergarten, she came home from school and told us that someone got in trouble for saying the S word. Of course, we were horrified and fascinated all at the same time. Uh oh, the S Word — these are 5-year-olds!

We wanted to make sure she was talking about the same word we were thinking — s**t — so we asked her to tell us what the word was.

Once we assured her she wouldn’t get in trouble for saying it just this one time, she told us …

Stupid.

After we got done laughing with relief, we realized they were right. Stupid is a bad word to call someone else!

  1. When your youngest nephew was just starting to learn the alphabet, he started noticing signs and things with letters on them. We were driving down the street one day when he pointed to a “No Parking” sign (the capital ‘P’ with the line thru it) and asked his big sister, “Does that mean you can’t pee on this street?” I had to pull over I was laughing so hard.

    • That is so cute! No wonder Art Linkletter had that great show for so long. Kids do say the darndest things!

  2. Ever seriously wished the earth would open up and swallow you because of something one of your kids said in public?

  3. When the youngest was about 4-5, I was walking down the church hall with him when our pastor walked by, and greeted him by name. I was so touched that the pastor of such a large church would remember a toddler’s name. Without breaking stride, the little stinker flashed a big grin and said, “Hello diaper-head!”
