Mini Me has found a new phrase!
Daddy: "Mini Me, no standing in the bathtub."
Mini Me: "Damn it!"
Or as in:
Mommy: "Mini Me, bedtime."
Mini Me: "Awwwwwwww, DAMN IT!!"
The girl knows how to use it and says it with the most guttural voice.
The first time she said it, I didn't believe I heard what I thought I heard. She repeated it several times that day and each time I wondered if I really heard what I thought I heard.
Finally, I asked Motor Mouth to translate.
Me: "Motor Mout, did she say DanG it, or DaRN it?"
Motor Mouth: "No, Mommy. She said 'Damn it'."
Me: "Where did she hear that, Motor Mouth?"
Motor Mouth: "From a movie."
Me: "What movie, Motor Mouth?"
Motor Mouth: "I don't know."
NO J and I do NOT use this phrase. We honestly have NO IDEA where she heard it. I know I say 'dang it', like any good hick, but the other is not a phrase I use.
The thing is, ever since Mini Me began cussing last week, we've wanted to use that word as well. For example:
J: "Damn it, Widney Woman, you left hair all over the shower wall again!"
It's a great, universal kind of word that gets your feelings across clearly and succinctly. See, I do have a great command of the English language so use of such words would be a choice.
Well, gotta take Mini Me to a playdate where I am going to have to warn the other mother of Mini Me's new phrase and PRAY my child stops saying it.
