As soon as the words left my mouth, Monkey asked me what I said and why I said it. According to the developmental charts Munchkin's newfound skill was way ahead of schedule (and her teeth generating skills were already behind), so a little shock and awe felt justified. However, I should have known better. Monkey questions everything that passes my lips ("Why are you sighing?") and then imitates them (Me: Monkey, put your toys away. Monkey: Big sigh). The only other times I've said anything similar have been under my breath and I've been able to cover by telling him I said, "Oh, snap!" I know there are worse words to say, but when every word heard by a three-year-old is repeated back to you at the least opportune times, a parent needs to tread very very carefully.
I've learned my lesson, but it might be too late. It's been about six weeks since I uttered those fateful words and a few days ago, Monkey says to me, "Mami! Look! Munchkin is standing up!" "Yes, I see." I replied. Then he looked me in the eyes and with a little grin said, "Holy crap!"
