♥ Bad WorDs and Sauciness — 17 Comments

  1. Nice to find someone else who finds Jane Austen’s novels relaxing. I can get lost for hours …. and Persuasion is my favourite.

    So true that you tend to handle misbehaviour very differently with the younger children than with the first born.

  2. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate-I don’t envy moving to a whole other state. I hope your move goes smoothly!

    Such a well written post! I agree, when my son says something funny or a is being mischevious-it puts a smile on my face and in my heart faster than anything else!

  3. Reading your posts is like looking into my future… 🙂 It will be interesting to see what kinds of funny things my son says to me when he is older! 🙂

  4. Guess this is something I have to look forward too. At four, my son doesn’t seem to understand the consequences of lying. We’ve busted him saying a few bad words… hopefully they won’t keep creeping in!

  5. I love the way that you have learned from dealing with your older sons.

    Not to panic!

    Sometimes, I still hit that button.

    Hope you get settled soon.

    Sweet dreams.

  6. I forgot to tell you.

    My children and my husband accuse me of going around the world to tell a story.

    Just thought you should know that.

    Sweet dreams.

  7. Great Post! You can tell you love being a mom too. I love that he felt comfortable enough to tell you that he was saying those words….such a good thing! Good thoughts to share. I enjoyed reading your blog and will be back! 🙂

  8. I love your blog, as does my husband. It kinda sounds like your little one may have been hanging out with ours (he’s six-and-a-half…. I get in trouble when I leave the half off;). I’m gonna have to become a subscriber, hoping to learn a little from a mom with more experience. He’s our only one so far, though some days we aspire for more. Some days. Hope the move goes well. We are planning a family-state transplant in the near future as well:)

  9. It’s always fun to see where conversations that start with “I’ve got to tell you something” will end up. … Sounds like you did a good job handling this one, Mom. I like what you say about children needed reassurance that they’ve made the right choice. Yes …

  10. “I gotta tell you something”. Sounds like a book title to me, with miles of pages being written as your kids supply the verbal typing. With a humorous book such as that would be, dear Jane and pals would be destined to a long shelf life!

  11. Ha. That is adorable and sounds just like a little boy. Gotta love it. You have definitely followed Wisdom in the way you deal with your boys.


  12. I love your story. Wish it had worked that way for me. My experience was that my older two…the most “serious” thing they said was “Shut Up.” Easy enough.

    My third daughter…well, she’s just a whole new ball of wax!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing yours!
