ONE has learned the words “stupid” and “hate” and is now using them in sentences like “You’re stupid Mommy” or worse … “I hate you!” It’s horrifying and terrible and embarrassing. Mostly it’s embarrassing.
Guess who taught him those words?
Both of them were learned from me … because I loathe Walmart. Every time we go there I say “I hate Walmart” or “THIS IS SO STUPID!” Because I do. And everything about it is. I am totally to blame. I would love to blame Walmart. Or Husband. But unfortunately, as a parent, I should have been saying something like “I have a strong dislike for this establishment. It’s so silly.”
So now I know how parents end up talking like idiots, using words like fiddlesticks and smartypants. Now I must undo what I have done. Before August 27, the first day of preschool. Lord help me.
