My Lovely Daughters

Setting: Living Room (I'm in the kitchen)
7-year old: Interminable whining in background
3-year old: "You are a clown."
7-year old: "No I'm not. You're mean!"
3-year old: "O.K., then you are a bitch."
7-year old: "Daddeeee!!!"
Me: Firmly biting inside of cheek to keep from laughing, I sternly give said 3-year old a time-out.

I don't mind the swearing so much but it must be used judiciously. Words like that, I told her, should be reserved for teachers, grandparents, and pastors.

Stay You.
