And Now She Writes Curse Words

Most of my readers know that my kids seem to have issues with spelling their names.

My daughter Natalie writes Na or Nat on her school papers.

My son Tommy refuses to use a capital T. So he spells his name tommy.

And now..

NOW…

Well.

Look.



Yes.

Natalie wrote the word DAMN.

I knew my road rage would catch up to me some day….

When I saw the word in her school papers I asked what she was spelling.

“Letters,” she answered sweetly.

Mind you, she’s four so I don’t believe she actually spelled the word on purpose. (Or DID she? She is rather feisty..)

“So you don’t know what this says?” I asked.

Natalie tapped her chin. “Letters!” she repeated triumphantly.

So phew. She’s not going to start writing foul words all over her school work.

I mean, I suppose I should be grateful that she didn’t write the word that rhymes with luck.

  1. But those letters are so well formed!!! From an fine motor standpoint, that's beautiful!!!

    I'd probably not frame it and hang it though. Maybe save it till she gets married or something...

  2. Blogger doesn't like me this morning. Tried to post earlier and it canceled out on me. Sorry if this posts twice, but DAMN that story of Na's letters is funny. Pun intended, those cheesy...I know. I'm lacking in the humor dept. this morning.

  4. We went on a mini vacation 2 weeks ago to a water park. The chlorine made Annabelle's legs itch and get a little rashy. As we are walking down the echo-y halls to get to our room, she was yelling my legs are itchy, titchy, bitchy, etc etc. She was just rhyming away but did she have to do it so loudly and in public?

  7. It starts with just "writing letters" and next thing you know she'll be leaving papers around the house with the f word.

  15. 25 years ago when my son was 5 years old one night at the dinner table - he proudly said to his father and I, looked what I learned today. I looked up to see him setting there with both his middle fingers pointed up in the air. I gasped and started to scream out when my husband calmly said Robert do you know what that means? Robert said I was just waving hello. Appanently some older child at school thought it was funny to teach the youger children this jester. We had to explain to Robert that this was not a nice way to "wave hello". So I truely believe that your daughter had no idea this was a bad word.

  17. Ha! I love it! They are so
    "damn" cute and don't even know it. These are the makings of what keeps us laughing through motherhood eh? The other day we were in the car and my son says
    "jacka$%" and I yell
    "where did you hear that word???" and he says " you say it"
    You know what? I do..all the time when I drive. OOPS!

  18. I have to admit this is pretty hilarious. I am surprised my DIEM hasnt done this. Last year at easter though I had her sign her name in my easter cards that I made for friends. I told her, write your name big enough so people can see it. Well she also asked if she could write peoples names in them... This is what I get.... DIE(little m) RAMON. So in the card it looked like a hate message.

  19. Well shit, at least she hasn't picked up your damn bad habits.

  20. I probably would have laughed my ass off if my kid came home with that on her paper! Love that age, they are getting so smart yet still our little babies all the same. :)

  21. Whether she KNEW and is hiding it, or didn't know and is just really getting the hang of letters, one thing's for sure, your Na/Nat is damn smart :-)

  22. Is it bad that I love when other people admit that they cuss & their kids pick up on it once in a while. LOL.

  23. Elizabeth rhymes random words all the time..,and sometimes those words aren't proper words. I just tell her to stop, but not why. I figure as long as she doesn't know I'm good. But then again she is crafty...

  24. You have to keep that FOREVER. "Letters" She even got the N in there!! That's like so much better than the monkey-typewriter-Shakespeare thing.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well, I am impressed. I know adults who even know that damn is spelling with an N. Smart girl!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's awesome- definitely something to keep!

  27. Do you know what the worst part is? She actually spelled it right for not knowing what the word really is compared to any of these 13-30 year olds that spell it wrong all the time on Facebook.

    Your daughter is a genius. :)

  28. I love it! This is too funny!! The 3yr old I nanny has started writing words. I would die if she came to me with DAMN on her paper!

  29. A definite save for the baby book.

  30. Not that I have a baby book, so no pressure.
