Cuss Words...OH MY!

OH MY...we were sitting at the table, Ammon and Sariah and me, after church eating lunch and out of the clear blue sky Ammon says the "B" word. I said "What did you just say?" hoping that I heard him wrong, and he said it again. I immediately asked him where he heard that word and he said he couldn't remember, but he had heard it. OH MY! I told him he was to NEVER use that word again. He asked "WHY?" so I told him that it was a cuss word and it was very bad and he was never to say it and that prompted an argument about cuss words and how he didn't beleive there was such a thing and if it was so bad, what did it mean? OH MY! I explained the meaning and that there were really bad words and that he was way too nice and good of a boy to be using such filthy language, nevermind that he would be getting to gargle vinegar if he ever said it again. I told him if he didn't want to beleive me he could ask his dad when he got home...and he did! I think Jason was shocked...and his first question to Ammon was "Did you hear that at church today?" How funny! with kids is great!

Oh the joys of raising children! I like Jason's first questioning if he heard it at church. FUNNY. I remember one evening as we were kneeling for family prayer (I was about 16)telling my dad that something he said was a bunch of B.S. It just slipped out! I never swore, but I worked around people who did, and heard it all day at school. I was lucky, too, because my dad simply gave me a look and nothing more was said about it.
