Watch Your Language!

Jonah is picking up new words at a record pace. It's amazing. He can now make all the animal noises humanly possible (smells like them occasionally too) and is repeating almost anything you say at very random moments.

Take for example when Daddy found a big scratch and dent on his brand new (much loved) truck. Let's just say that Daddy has been in the Navy for a long time and he has an extensive vocabulary that is rarely used, but definitely stored in the memory banks. He pulled one of those fancy words right out when he saw that scratch...and it wasn't truck. But it certainly rhymed with it. Just like a parrot, my little brother blurted that word right back.

Mommy has to go wash Daddy's mouth out with soap. But the word 'truck' is definitely banned from our house for a while. What rhymes with it is banned indefinitely.

Funny, we had that same conversation in our house this weekend!

Well, I know what that work is and yep, not for little ones to hear. I'm sure Ray won't be using that again any time soon and I hope the truck wasn't scratched too bad.
Hugs to Ray,
