Four Letter Words

Cael, like many kids that have unfortunately picked up some key pieces of profanity in their young years, is always testing the boundaries and finding ways to incorporate his new vocabulary into everyday conversation.  And every time he hears anything that sounds even close to inappropriate, he confidently and unceremoniously throws us under the bad language bus.

"I wonder what put the driver of that truck into such a funk."

"Whoa, Daddy, you just said the 'f' word!"

"No, I didn't Cael.  I said 'funk'.  Not the 'f' word."

"Oh.  But is there an 's' word, Daddy?"

I knew that Joel wouldn't tell him the "s" word, but I also knew that he wouldn't take no for an answer.  Cael never takes no for an answer.  Especially when the question involves ice cream or chocolate, but that's a topic for a different post. 

"Cael, the 's' word is 'sweet'."

"Oh, I'm sweet!  Is there an 'r' word?"

"Yeah, it's 'really special'."

"I'm that too!  What about a 'c' word?"


"Yeah, it's 'cute'."

"Mommy, you are cute, so that one is for you.  You're the 'c word'."

"Thanks, Cael.  Just promise not to compliment me at church, okay?"
