I don't use swear words very often, at least not in my day-to-day life. I probably write swear words much more often than I speak them aloud.

That being said, there is something quite shocking about hearing your 2-year-old son pipe up from the back seat with something that sounds suspiciously like "Where the hell is that house anyway?"

In my (and his) defense, that question had no relevance to what was happening during our short car ride home. In fact, we were on the highway...and not looking for any houses.

I think he was really saying something about an ambulance.

What - Where the hell is that ambulance?

I think it's wishful thinking on your part...and where the hell was that ambulance anyway?

When my son was 5 and we lived on the Gulf Coast, we had geckos in the house on a regular basis. When my mom and her friend visited, we opened the door and a gecko ran in and straight under the couch. My son said, "Where the hell did that damn gecko go?" It happens.

Hey, I said it sounded like he said where the hell is that house. I have no idea what he really said, but I though it was funny. Sheesh.

Ever had a kid's toy say something that sounded like it said something else? K has a workbench that says "Red screw" but it sounds like it's saying "let's screw."


Do I sound defensive? Maybe a little eh? HA!

Sometimes your ears play tricks on you, you're right Heather. Your post made me smile.

I have a friend whose daughter used to say "cock'n balls" for cotton balls. We used to get a chuckle out of that!

Yeah, my hubbie and I don't use any swear words at all. And the kids know that the "s" word is bad, as in "stupid"!
