How do I know this?
J had eaten a good nutritious breakfast of 2 eggs with cheese, pineapple, and water, because I’m a good mom like that… However, being me, I followed his breakfast with my own of Tostitos covered in cheese & salsa with a Diet Pepsi.
And of course,
J: Mommy I love ‘potato chips’
Mommy heard: Mommy I love ketchup
Mommy looks at the salsa…
Me: Oh Jacob, this isn’t ketchup, this is salsa. It is much spicier than ketchup.
J: (laughter) I didn’t say ketchup Mommy. (big smiles laughter)
Mommy heard: I didn’t say ketchup Mommy. You big moron.

Me: coP where you puff out that p sound?
J: Yeah cock

Me: Jacob – are you talking about that TRUCK that just drove off.
J: Yeah tr-uck
And mommy can sigh a relief, the other word may just have parted our company for a while. Hopefully.
J was playing downstairs & I said it was time to clean up so he started cleaning up... During the process he dropped his box of crayons...
J: Oh No! Crap!
And there was no mistaking who he got that one from... In all of its clarity...
And when he said it the other night after I had just gotten done admonishing Mr. M for his use of the F-bomb in front of J, he
To which, I'm just thankful...
