Random bits

Last week Bean said her first swear word (and I would like it noted that it wasn't my fault!). Husband walked in the door with Bean on his hip to find that Pup had an accident on the bathroom rug. Dammit he said. Dammit dammit dammit dammit dammit Bean parroted for the next 20 minutes. Luckily she seems to have forgotten her newest vocab word.

Our Thanksgiving holiday was totally awesome. We trekked down to Husband's mother's house for the annual eat-stravaganza. Husband's niece, who is six, was there this year and she was an awesome older cousin. Bean and her cousin played together virtually non-stop the entire weekend. It was really great to see. Their favorite game was one in which they took turns running from one end of the house to the other and then threw themselves onto a tumbling mat in a kind of belly flop.

The luxury of four (virtually) stress-free days with my child made returning to the daily grind of work/school jarring for me, and apparently heart-wrenching for the Bean. She wailed when we brought her to school yesterday, crying Mama! Mama! with giant tears rolling down her chubby cheeks. But as usual, when it was time to pick Bean up from school, she ran away from me, desperate to play with one. last. toy.

Last night during dinner, she sang bits and pieces of Jingle Bells.

My son used to say "Jesus!" when he was two - it sounded terrible coming from his little mouth. (I am proud to say that that is the worst 'swear word' he has uttered in his 6 years.) Then he hit the phase where he liked to babble and rhyme and make up new words. One day, at a crowded shopping centre (where else?!) he started, for no particular reason to yell out "Sweaty Vuvla!" Mortification ensues :)
Your bean is adorable, but you already know that!

Hehehe. Swearing kids. Hehehe.

My eldest occasionally will yell "DAMN" when he's upset, but so far, by some miracle, Alex hasn't picked up any other ones.

Kid Christmas Carol singing is the most adorable thing :) Have you done any other holiday things with Bean yet? Any Santa Claus parades in your area?

Glad to hear you had a great Thanksgiving holiday! I bet Bean sounds really cute when she swears =)
