Bugged by Jude's Bad Word...

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

There was a fly in the car today when we picked up Jude.  He's afraid flies can sting or bite him:

Jude: Mommy, Daddy, there's a freakin' fly (pronounced "fweakin' fwy") on my head...
Me (trying to interrupt): Jude, we don't say "freakin'"...
Jude (louder trying to get his point across): ...and he's on my arm...
Me (still louder): it's not a nice word.
Jude (louder to drown out my words): ...and he's on my leg (pronounced "weg")...
Me (louder still): Jude, do you hear me?  Do you understand?
Jude (still more upset by the fly than by what I said): ...and he's on my foot!
Chris (using the  Daddy voice, which seems to trump my best teacher voice): Jude, we know about the fly, but don't say "freakin'"!
Jude: I don't like (pronounced "wike") that stinkin' fly!
