I Need to Watch What I SayPosted: May 29, 2013
This is really dedicated to Chace since Harper can’t talk quite yet. I am sure in a few years, I will be re-visiting this because I will make the same mistakes with her. Wow, I wish I could take back some of the things I have said. It’s always the ones that I don’t want repeated that are repeated and definitely at the most awkward moments like in the check-out line at Target. Let me tell you, the stares that you get when a kid blurts out one of these not so nice lines…..Not fun!
I readily admit that I often say inappropriate things while driving. I just get so frustrated with people that can’t drive, cut me off or are on their phones. Unfortunately for me, Chace always hears my outbursts and then he repeats it later on. Embarrassing!
Here is a short list of things that Chace has repeated:
1. What the Heck!
2. Stupid (I was shocked the first time he said it and so now he has said it a few other times to get a reaction out of me. Luckily, it didn’t work and slowly but surely this one is not part of his vocabulary. (I hope!)
3. Oh. My. Gosh.
4. Are you kidding me! (This is the one that Chace said while we were in line at Target and I said no to him getting something.)
5. Get out of my way!
6. You need to learn how to drive!
7. Get off your phone, Lady! (Luckily, this one has just come out of his mouth, not in the proper context because I would for sure get strange looks from other people. So many people are on their phone everywhere we go, so this would be super embarrassing if he said it out in public.
These are just the ones that he has used recently. I am sure there are so many more and reason enough whyI have to learn to watch what I say when I get mad. It is coming back to haunt me when I least expect it.
Why can’t he sleep in the car all the time like before?
