Inappropriate words

A couple of weeks ago as we were all getting ready for bed when my husband slipped this little statement into the conversation "Stella said frickin today." "WHAT?!?" I replied. "Ya, we were in the car at a stop light and she started yelling 'FRICKIN GO, FRICKIN GO!'" he says. I wonder who she got that from? Could it be her mother who treasures our time in the car because it means that I am not chasing her around? Or could it be her father who is already road raging the minute we get out of our driveway on an empty subdivision street? So for the next couple days I kept a close watch on her but never heard the word again so I was hoping it was just a fluke.

The weekend rolls around and Saturday we were all driving as a family when we came to a stop light at which point Stella started screaming "FRICKIN GO!" over and over. I looked at Dan with the look of death. "DO NOT SAY THAT" he told her. "Hypocrite" I mumbled under my breath. We got to our dinner destination and afterwards Dan wanted to run into a shoe store. Shoe stores and toddlers do not go well together so I told him we would wait in the car. My daughter and I were having a nice conversation until she realized Dan was gone and asked "Where did frickin Daddy go?" I told her not to use that word at which point she asked the question again. So, like any good mother I got out of the car, went around to her door, opened it, and smacked her on the hand. She laughed.

Later that night when we put her to sleep I was in the office on the computer when I heard her start to yell "FRICKIN DADDY GET UP HERE!" I ignored it this time, mainly because I didn't have the energy to fight any longer. I know there could be far worse words she could be saying but I am just waiting to pick her up from daycare and them to tell me she decided to use it there or possibly, maybe, she will wait until our church Christmas program and debut it there for the public.

*I have not heard the word again in a little over a week.

To everyone who reads this blog

I have had a couple people who have contacted me and told me that they like this blog of mine. If you read it and like it would you please sign up to be a follower? (see box to the right to do so) This way I will know who and how many people are actually reading it. Many times I think I am just writing for my own entertainment and then I get a sweet note saying "I like your blog" and I never knew that person was even reading it. It would mean a lot to me, all it does is update you when I write a new post and it lets me know who you are.

It's a boy!

We went for our big ultrasound yesterday and found out we are having a boy! Dan and I are both in shock. When the tech told us she was going to look to see if she could tell us what it is I immediately saw his little peepee. It was clear as day and she didn't even need to tell me, it was right there in front of our eyes. We are very excited and happy that our family is now comlplete. Now we just have to get a bunch of boy clothes and swords and guns and stuff for him to play with. It is going to be a big change for our girly girly Stella and our life of babies and barbies and dress up but it will be fun. So, here we go, now we just have to wait about another 19 weeks for him to make his enterence into the world. We love you baby boy!
