Since the snow is finally melting, we get lots of ice at night. Tonight, while leaving a birthday party some one told us to be careful because the puddles have iced over. I overheard Brinley say "Oh nuts!...Oh crap and nuts!" I couldn't help but laugh, but great, I've taught her such a wonderful word and she even knows how to use it correctly. I am so glad my daughter catches on to all the things she isn't supposed to and doesn't listen to me any other time...the joys of parenting. I guess I could have taught her to say something worse, but it sure makes me wonder what other things she hears ans how horrible I am as a parent to say those things around her and that it's okay for me to say them.
However, I love the show Project Runway... and last night the episode I watched was about a bunch of (gay) designers making "outfits" for women who are proffesional wrestlers. I am sure you can imagine what the costumes may have looked like. Well, I thought Brinley was asleep (I don't usually watch that show when she is in the room) and when they showed some of the finished outfits, I hear Brinley say, as she puts her hand over her eyes and says, " oh yuck, Mom, that is so not modest...turn the channel." And then sticks her tounge out. At least I have taught her what it is to be modest.
And just because I can...my Brinley is always getting words wrong. I am sure every kid does this, but right now she is obsessed with Charlie and Lola. We were watching an episode about them getting lost and they were telling the story of Hanzel and Gretel. I was asking Brinely to describe it for me and she kept saying it was "Handsome and Gretel." Maybe she thinks Charlie is cute...
She calls Top Romen "Taco Romen". It makes me laugh every time.
