Disclaimer: We do not swear at our house, nor do we condone such behavior. Unfortunately, Jakob picked up a certain word over a year ago from a certain television program which has now been banned, and we CANNOT get him to stop using it. We’ve tried, I promise.
The following episode just occurred at our house:
Jakob (using his cute teeny tiny voice): Dad, dammit is a bad word. We shouldn’t say dammit.
Todd (sternly): No, we don’t say that word. Not even to say it’s a bad word.
Jakob(hanging head): I’m sorry I said dammit.
Jakob heads toward the stairs while Jennifer and Todd silently giggle. He begins to descend the stairway, quietly chanting “dammit, dammit, dammit” all the way down.
Todd and Jennifer continue to attempt to laugh silently.
From the bottom of the stairs a shout is heard, “Oh, DAMMIT!!!!”
Todd and Jennifer totally lose it.
