Tell me I'm not the only one

Do you have one child that is more selfish needier than the rest? There are days I just want to pull my hair out! And she and I... we have words, many many words. By 'words', I don't mean bad words. Just arguments discussions.

Well, if you ask my kids, I say 'bad' words all the time. The 'S' word (2 of them, actually). I'm gonna say them. Plug your ears!



Shut up

It's not that I mean to say 'bad' words. Some words just don't sound that bad until you hear them coming from a child, especially your own child. I don't know, there's just something about it. And I don't tell them to shut up. It's usually to the dogs. We're always yelling at them to shut up. They do this weird howling thing and it's really annoying. It starts out a bark, usually at someone walking by with another dog and then transitions to this really loud howling.... thing. It's as if they think they sound great! Do they think they're singing opera? What's the deal?

And we don't call the kids 'stupid' either, just for the record. It usually comes out of frustration. Like, "This stupid dishwasher isn't washing properly." or "I can't get this stupid jar open." Therefore, my kids tell people that I say the 'S' word. Then I have to explain what the 'S' word is and it's all sorts of fun!

Well look at this! How did I go from talking about my very headstrong child to telling on myself? *Sigh*

Wow! I totally know that kind of a day. I also say the "s" word too much....stupid lawnmower, stupid dishwasher :0) etc.

It's pretty bad when your autistic son, who has echolalia, starts saying, "Shut up!" when he's upset.

Oh, and my nephew used to have a swear jar, and I had to give him a quarter all the time for saying "stupid." (which I never said about people either).
