You know after you have been around kids for a while that you should always expect the unexpected. But there are those times when you just know that what is coming is not good.
We have a BIG family tradition in our family for New Years Eve. All the kids go to Granny and Pa's house for the "Big Party". This is a party for kids only, anyone over 2 and potty trained.... no adults...absolutely none.... well that is except for Mom and Dad. They always seem to be aloud without questions. Maybe because it is at their house. I don't know but anyway. The "Big Party" starts about 3:00 on the 31st and goes until lunch time on the 1st when all the parents come barging in for a meal of pork, peas, and sauerkraut. The party is a no rules party, the kids can do anything including ride mattresses down the stairs..... yes they have done that..........eeeeekkk! No smoking, no alcohol, no boys sleeping in the same room with girls but otherwise anything goes!!! This year there was 14 kids between the age of 4 and 22. This year was the 28th anniversary of the party. My kids have been there every year even through the teen stuff.
So when we got home on the 1st and got the boys ready for bed Taylor told us that we knew 2 bad words, the "s" word and the "d" word. GREAT..... just what we need. What is the world did they hear at the Big Party?!?! The conversation went a bit like this.
Taylor I know 2 bad words the "s" word and the "d" word. Do you want to know them?
Tim No, I don't want you to tell me. Do not say them.
Taylor but Dad, are you sure you don't want me to tell you?
Tim Taylor! Just forget about them, God wouldn't be happy seeing you thinking about or saying bad words
Taylor (Hands on the side of his head) Dad! I can't stop thinking about them, they won't get out of my head.
Tim Taylor! Go to sleep.
Taylor Dad, just let me whisper them in your ear.
Tim Okay Taylor, this one time then to sleep and I don't want to hear anymore about it.
So Taylor leans really close to Tim's ear and very quietly says.................
STUPID and DUMB!
We all breathed a sigh of relief and very poker-faced said ... well okay then, no more bad words.
this is what real life looks like
