A little Red in the Face...

The day before yesterday I had taken the girls to Tim Horton so Mommy could have a hot cup of coffee and the girls could have a donut(special treat, and I wanted a HOT coffee). When we were finished I told the girls we had one errand to run before going home, I wanted to go to our local grocer and get some lunch things, so we finished up and away we went.
The shopping trip was going well, we hadn't knocked anything off a shelf, no screaming, fighting with our sister, no running down isles, Mommy was pretty calm and happy.
I had picked up everything I needed and off to the checkouts we went, they were pretty busy so we stood in line, again to my delight both girls were behaving beautifully , I kept praising them and told them I was proud. I was getting some nods, winks and smiles from the people standing in line.
We were getting ready to leave when the cashier asked "Do your girls want a sucker?"
I thanked her and said "No thanks they just had a donut."
I am kind of strict when it comes to sugar and their diets, it just sends my Jilly-Bean crazy.
Well Jill threw herself into a huge meltdown and started to scream that she wanted a sucker. Now what you don't know is that Jilly is having trouble with her S, it comes out as an F. Yes she was saying SF*cker, now everyone in line was either gasping and snickering.
I was trying to make a quick get away and we all know too well that when we want to do that your monkey will turn into the rubber band man and you can't get a good grip on them to drag them out of the store.
Jill continued to scream, my face went 10 shades of red and then to top it all off Jen starts yelling "Mom Jill will have to go in the time out spot for saying that word, the word only Moms and Dads say. " What???? The word Moms and Dads say(??), oh yes we use that word all the time!!!
I want to crawl into the shopping bag and disappear.
I grab my bags and neatly stuff Jillian under my arm and run quickly to the van where I am now trying to stifle my laughter(I had to laugh or cry).
I buckle everyone up and it's off through the drive thru to get a calm my frazzled Mommy nerve cup of coffee.
This is my world, we will be working on our s this week, LOL.

Oh, that is a classic for sure. Eli likes to say the word ship and spaceship, but he can't prounounce P's, he says T's instead. So yes, my son says S*IT all the time. What can you do?

We have/had 2 Scottish Terrors (I mean Terriers) named Abercrombie and Fitch. Fitch went to doggie heaven the week after we went DTC. Anyway, you should've seen the neighbor's face when she heard a toddler-aged Cullen yell for the dog the first time!!!! The "f" sure did sound like a "b"!!!

I love the adventures of your family.
So mommy's and daddy's say fucker at your house? Intersting.
Don't you hate it when everything is going well and then some inocent event by a well meaning person trips up the whole thing?
This happens with Shrimpy too and it's usually Grandma who messes up the calm. not her fault, she's well meaning.
Happy New year!

Sophie's Mom said...

Oh my... that is hilarious. So glad you had a sense of humor about the whole thing! You'll laugh and tell the grandkids one day... ;)

Diana said...

Far too funny to cry over...
Sophia told the hairdresser to "fuck off" once, she had/has no clue what it means but Daddy has left quite the impression!!!

Stacy said...

Whew! I needed a laugh this afternoon. I know it wasn't funny in the moment, but it is funny now. :)

Jill W said...

That is classic! I love your stories. Shortly after Macie came home last year she misunderstood the name of one of her brother's buddies. His name is Mitch. Well she kept calling him b*tch. My younger son called her on it. She had no idea she was even saying a bad word. Mitch was just amazed but very kind--he realized she was & still is learning english. We call these little mix ups Chinglish. Most of her chinglish is pretty funny. We don't run into very many naughty chinglish words.

I laughed so loud reading this post. My *baby girl* of three pronounces "fork" as something else, I trust you are smart enough to figure it out. Thanks for the chuckle.
