A few weeks ago, I was being a total slug, lying on my bed while watching my newest favorite guilty pleasure, "Charmed."
(yeah, I know...it's totally embarrassing...yada yada).
All of a sudden, one of the characters yelled "Step back, bitch!". (Uh, why this was on "Charmed", I have no idea.)
Berlyn stopped playing with her toys and looked up at the TV.
I completely froze. I looked at Berlyn and not a mili-second later, she yelled,
"STEP BACK, BITCH!!!!"
Immediately, I burst out laughing as tears came down my face. Then, I promptly stopped and yelled at her.
"No! You do NOT say that word!" I screamed.
I always knew I would struggle with two things being a mother.
One, I think when children use profanity it is HILARIOUS.
And two, I have always been very open and "bohemian" in my views and parenting style so a lot of things that upset other mothers do not upset me. I don't want to raise a sheltered, scared, paranoid little girl.
But, I have to draw the line at "bitch".
At least until she's 10, right?
