The Scene: Our living room after dinner
The Player: Sean, Avery, Ella the dog and me
Avery was jumping from the ottoman to the sofa and back, Sean was surfing and Ella was doing her best to position herself so that she was in physical contact with each of us. Avery soon landed in the space between the ottoman and the sofa and decided to stay on the floor, crawling around and around beneath our legs. Ella’s need to be touching us began to border on frantic.
Me: Ella, move it.
No movement from Ella.
Me: Ella. Now. Go.
Ella scooted approximately 3 inches away. Avery continued crawling.
I cocked my head. Avery continued crawling.
Avery: Bee- bitch. Go bitch.
I leaned forweard and looked at Sean, his eyebrows were raised, curious as I was to determine if she was really grunting bitch as she crawled.
Me: What’s that Avery?
Avery: BEECH! Go. Move da bitch.
I was absolutley horrified.
Me: Is she saying bitch?
Sean: I’m not sure.
Avery: Bitch, ‘gain bitch. Gleeful squeals and laughter.
Crestfallen. Avery crawled around and passed beneath Sean’s legs which were resting on the ottoman.
Avery: ‘S’a bitch.
I sat, my mouth hanging open and shoulders slumped in defeat. Then Sean lit up.
Sean: Bridge. She’s saying bridge!
Thank goodness, unlearning that would have been, well, it would have been a bitch.
Snirk! Oh sweetie, that was priceless.
hilarious! I have heard countless stories of cursing kiddies, but never one of mistaken cursing.
This never happened with our oldest, but our youngest makes every word sound like a swear word. I never knew it was possible until she came along. She's like a really, really short sailor. It's awful. 😉
Don'cha love the first words?
OhHo my, that would have been fun…
You have got to have the funniest girls in the world… Thanks for the giggle 🙂
We recently went through about the same thing.. thinking the same thing. It's fun when you figure it out!
Oh my goodness, was that ever funny!
hehehe I was so picturing that entire scene in my head!
I needed that giggle, thanks!
ha ha ha!
MQ used to say "shit" all the time, which was her mispronunciation of "shoot" and i thought I was watering it down for her. this is why I now say things like "Holy Canoli!"
OH. MY. GOODNESS.
I can't catch my breath – that was fantastically hilarious!
LOL! That was great!
Let me guess what word is going to be removed from the vocab next.
"Son of a bridge".
Nope, just doesn't have the same effect.
🙂 we have had so many of those "close calls" around here…Zander is a parrot extraordinare, so we have to really watch what we say. but every once in a while, he'll say something that sounds like one of those bad words you never want your toddlers to know…but it turns out innocent in the end!
just the laugh i needed today!
