We were at a party last night and one of the guests went out occasionally to smoke. DD heard this and kept saying, "(s)moke, (s)moke." She then spend a good part of the evening trying to stick her straw in my beer.
Managed to keep from either laughing or dropping my jaw though... not that it was easy.
Can't wait to see what's next. :

Mindfully mothering SIX kids (ages 6, 7, 8, 10, 12 & 12) in a small house with a lot of love.
She will also say "dammnnnn" in a disappointed way, and tonight I bought a 6 pack of beer at the gas station and she says "Wow, you've got a lot of beer Mommy!"
She also says she can drink beer and smoke cigarettes when she gets bigger. (ugh!)
They are so funny!
Saturday night, Dh was changing him into pjs in his room, and ds pipes up in this sweet toddler voice,
"Daddy, don't look at the beer under my bed!"
Dh, momentarily forgetting that it was almost father's day, got this striken look of horror on his face, and said, "Isn't he a little young for me to have to worry about this???"
But, recently my brother was playing the 'where's your nose, where's your eyes' game and said, "Where's your butt?" like he'd just said the worst word ever. I said, "Jackson can say 'ass' if he wants to - butt's not a bad word." Of course, out of his little mouth clear as day, "Ass!" He doesn't know what it means, but knows that adults find it hilarious, so he says it on a regular basis...
If my ds name calls, that's a whole different ball game. I tell him it hurts feelings to name call and if he is so inclined to use those words (whatever he has come up with), then he can go into a room where noone is and try those words out on the air. We are not big on name calling in our house.
when dd was first walking on her own (around 17 mo), we stopped to pick up some fall leaves. She crouched down, grabbed her leaf and as she stood up she grunted with effort and said "JEEEEEZUSSSS!"
She has come out with rhyme songs where she's been known to sing, loudly, "SUCKER F#$%ER DUCKER!" lol
All in all, we have done well with controlling our mouths. DH used to be the worst for the f-word. He used it as emphasis, in place of commas, periods and adjectives, and just to fill space in conversation : We have tried to replace our cussing with words that are satisfying to belt out, like SHOOKAROOTOOTUTIE!!! OH FOR THE LOVE OF HARV! Feng SHUIIIIII!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAH, CACKAROACH! Oh, POO! DANG DIDDLY!!!
One thing dd has picked up and perpetuated is CrappaDiddly. She has also said "THIS....IS....~*DAMN*~!!!!" when she's really fristrated with a toy or activity.
But then again, much more offensive than ANY cuss word, is dh teaching dd to aim her butt and toot on people They both think it's a riot. DH even does it to me, and dd has started it. She says (giggling) "Mama, I tooted on you!"
