The first words out of his mouth for the day are Oh crap!
This pic is similar to what he saw when he peaked out of the window...
|I didn't have the time to take a picture of the plow he saw so this will have to do. This is pretty much how much snow we ended up getting. Oh crap indeed.|
The city snow plow trying to clear the road in front of our house. We had a rather large dump of snow over night and it didn't stop snowing all day.But that's not my story. We live in western Canada, this isn't a rare event really.
His comment "oh crap" did however start up the debate KingK and I have been in for years, since BigJ was a preteen and it continues through LittleA's preteen years.
KingK thinks crap is a swear word. I do not.
I do have to clarify. I did not allow my kids to say it when they were younger. Not until they got older did I allow it. I don't think it's a swear but I don't think it would sound very nice to hear a young child say it either.
Anywho, this debate actually makes me laugh. Usually we are on the other sides on something like this. KingK is more relaxed and I am more uptight about stuff.
So our debate continues with no resolution in sight. And LittleA will most likely say that word again. Mom doesn't consider it a swear and clearly he knows who the boss is in our house. Wink wink.
What do you think? Is crap a swear? Do you/would you let your older children use it? Would/did your parents let you use it? I won't be offended if you agree with KingK...ocasionally he is right, but don't tell him that!
