Watch Your Mouth

Today when I got to Skylar's class to pick her up, the first person I came in contact with was a little boy that informed me that Skylar told her class that I say bad words. Not knowing quite how to respond, I quickly but kindly let him know that I didn't say bad words. So when I get Skylar and we start talking, the conversation went like this....

Me: Skylar, did you tell your class that I say bad words?

Skylar: Yes, because you do say bad words.

Me: What bad words did you hear me say.

Skylar: Well, you said you look like a fat cow, and fat is a bad word.

Me: When you told your class that I said bad words, did you tell what words I said? (thinking this may provide clarity for what her teachers think of me, not to mention the parents of her friends.)

Skylar: No, I couldn't repeat the bad words. I just told them the words you say are really bad.

So, I am apparently known around the preschool as the mother who says really bad words. The reputation I've always wanted.

I am laughing so hard right now! Skylar is a hoot!

(I'm glad she's not in ear shot of me...I use those same "bad words") :)

I am seriously laughing out loud...Troy enjoyed the story too. I think the funniest part is the quote that she referenced your "bad word" from...that is something that would come out of my mouth. I guess you can rest assure she won't be calling anyone fat anytime soon though!
