The Idiot Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the F***ing Tree

The time has come when I must clean up my language. I know......I know.

When you hear "Jesus Christ" and "idiot", it's not so bad. But when they come out of an eight year old's mouth, it sounds pretty damn bad. Particularly when he's saying it to his friend in front of his friend's mother and grandfather....with me right there.

Those words come from this scenario everytime I'm out driving with them:

"What are you doing, you idiot?!", I ask through my windshield to an idiot driver.

"Jesus Christ. When is the light going to turn green?"

Fuck has the highest ranking of swear words. When it comes out of an eight year old's mouth, it makes me feel like a failure of a mother.

"Fuck!", Brendon exclaimed when his golf ball missed the hole when we were out playing miniature golf.

Yeah. It's time.


  • Shannon -
    I'm totally serious,& I mean no disrespect because I love ya!

    BUT: Good fucking luck with the cutting back on cursing girlfriend!

    I've been trying to say "flipping" instead of fucking as of late myself - Hey, try saying that 3 times fast!

    I know...say "Shuttlecock when ever you want to say Sh*t or F^ck.
    It has a nice ring to it and just might work. It was big hit when you wrote it on G-Ninja's blog ;)
    I couldn't stop saying Shuttlecock all day!

    SIDEBAR: your son not only sounds like you, but looks just like you!

    The pic of him and Charlie on Carey's website was like looking at you, if you were an 8 yr old boy.

    Ok - I make no sense.
    Good Nite and again, good flipping luck!

    And if any one gives you crap, tell them to go SHUTTLECOCK themselves!

  • I remember my son saying "SHIT!" when he dropped his toy when he was 3.

    I couldn't get too angry I mean, he used it in the right context right.

    I feel your pain Shannon. I told my kids, when they hit 18 they can say all the fucking shit they want but I do not want to hear that shit! '

  • It's very weird to hear curse words explode out of your child's mouth. Or see them appear on his Facebook page. Even on when he is on the verge of adulthood. How dare they become f*cking individuals?

  • I have started saying 'honest to pete' and 'dad blasted' and 'heavens to betsy'.

    Now my 2 year old is running around saying that and my wife is pissed off.

    But I'm allowed to get upset and frustrated right? Well I have to say something (and I have the right too).

    And this video says that fuck is actually a very versitile word.

  • My 2 year old walked into the bathroom the other day as I was dredging all of the toilet paper that he had stuffed the toilet with out and he said 'I don't fu**ing have any more.' It totally made me laugh. Not in front of him though...that wouldn't be the proper mommy thing to do. :P

    I feel your pain. :)

  • Aw man - it's hard to bite your tongue, but it does sound horrible when what you say comes flying out of your kids mouths (my own kids have done it to me).

    I'm giggling at some of the alternatives to swears over here. I think shuttlecock is my fav ... :)
