I came across a saying once:

"Children seldom misquote. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said."

I'm sure this will bite us many times throughout Amelia's childhood... especially since it's already starting. Today in school, Amelia stuck her finger in her nose and told her teachers and classmates, "Got boogies!". When Steve came home from work, she stuck her finger in her nose and announced, "Got boogies!". Then she proceeded to the trash can to throw away the pretend boogie. Steve was both amused and somewhat appalled at the same time. What to do?

Hee hee.

Keep in mind, this child has a runny nose practically every day from September through March. I'm constantly wiping her nose. And as happens with such things, boogers are often captured or stuck on her cheek. I always say "oh, wait! let me get the boogie". Then I throw the tissue in the trash.

I guess Amelia really does listen to me!

LOL! I know exactly what you mean. I inadvertently said sh*t after I hurt my finger this week and Collin repeated it immediately. It was something I don't usually ever say so he didn't know what to think...I have been more wary of what I say now too.
