Kids Say The Darndest Things -

I'm sure most people agree that having children is a wonderful and rewarding experience most of the time. But what about the rest of them? Here's one experience... Not too long ago, my boyfriend and I took our four year old daughter to the grocery store. We were strolling through the cereal aisle when the little one lets rip a heady gas. Now, this wouldn't have been too bad, had she just excused herself. But, being a kid it isn't that simple. Instead she turns to look at my boyfriend and me, and with a huge grin and in the loudest voice she could muster, she says "Mommy-Daddy guys (we aren't two parents, we have become a single parent entity now), I f**king farted!" Of course, there had to be an old couple around to really make it funny (thanks a lot, Murphy). We ended up having to walk around the store for another half an hour to finish our shopping, to the delight of all the employees. Yep, Bill Cosby had it right...kids say the darndest things.

OMG! LOL That sounds like something my 3 year old would come up with!!! He did something similar to that once! After my son patiently watched my husband try to assemble a new toy he received for his birthday, and listened to my husband mutter a few obscenities under his breath trying to figure it out, I remember running to the grocery store with my kids and while waiting in the line at the deli, my 12 year old daughter was tickling and torturing my son to keep him occupied when he yelled out at the top of his lungs "Stop it Mother F***er!" Needless to say, I had a fit at BOTH kids and the line of people at the deli all looked horrified and I didn't wait around to hear their remarks...we skipped the deli section that day and got out of there!

Oh my! It sounds like you definitely have your hands full there. I bet most parents would have high tailed it out of there, as well. :) I wasn't able to berate my daughter for cursing because I was almost doubled over with laughter and I'm sure any kind of bawling out would never have had the desired effect.

Oh my... I would have been embarrased if it was me, and would have just wanted to leave my Cart right there, and hightail it out of the store. That too me would definately be one of my Most embarassing moments. Glad that you could laugh a long with this though. Just might need to tell your daughter that this is not acceptable language so it does not happen again.

Yeah but the lady walking by with her daughter had the best reaction. Almost doubled over in her own cart? Now THAT was funny.
