So this morning, Tax Deduction the Younger and I are in the playroom, working on a puzzle. My precious three year old is talking to himself as he looks for the right pieces. "T Rex. I want the T Rex. There. There's the teeth. There. There's the fucking nose."
Yeah. F-bombed by my three-year-old son. He muttered "fuckfuckfuck" at the breakfast table later.
Loving Husband and I (hopefully) explained that "that word" is not nice, it's a grownup word, and he's Not. Allowed. To. Say. That. Word.
We have no idea where he learned it. LH and I are very, very careful around our Tax Deductions; no cussing around the Impressionable Youts. (Channeling the judge from My Cousin Vinny here.) I'm guessing that Elmo doesn't get into the different levels of profanity on Sesame Street.
Sheesh. Or, more appropriately, holy fuck.
Anyone have any tips on how to teach three year olds that saying "fuck" isn't nice?
