It does. It really does. But now I think I'm clinging to it as the last vestige of the woman I used to be before baby. I think I'm cursing more, not less.
The swear jar isn't working. Mostly because neither Husband nor I notice when I curse. It's so ingrained in my normal speech patterns that it doesn't raise a red flag 98.9% of the time (+/- 1 percent error).
The other day, Husband actually caught me (for once) using a totally unnecessary "f**k".
"You knew what you were getting yourself into!" I exclaimed. "You knew you were gettin' a sailor when you married me."*
"But I didn't necessary want a sailor for a 2-year-old daughter."
Hmm, good point.
*There may or may not have been some curse words thrown in there for emphasis.
