What?!?!

"I like the fuckin', fuckin', dragon part." Kid announces while rockin out in the living room

"WHAT?!?!" Mrs F asks slightly alarmed

"I like the fuckin', fuckin', dragon part." Kid reaffirms

Mrs F whips her head over to Mr F's side of the room "Is. That. What. This. Song. Says?!!!!"

"Yeah... that's why I usually skip the end." Mr F replies

Hmm...... bad job Mr F.

*********************************************
moments later the next song comes on....

"Mr F!!! This music isn't APPROPRIATE!" Mrs F emphatically suggests

They looked 21 when I let them into the club!

oh fuckers, gotta clean up some potty mouth.

Smoochiefrog said...

Um, wow!

Preppy Mama said...

I am laughing because my son just said "fuck it" the other day. I am in big trouble for my potty mouth so now I say "F" it. Hey, I'm trying!!

Robin said...

oh. my. god. I am laughing so hard. It's amazing what kids pick up. Kent (3) said ass about 14 times today. I have no idea where he got it. If it was "crap," I know where he got that, but "ass." Must be dad.

Robin said...

Ok, hubby want's to know what song that is. I guess dragons appeal to 32 year old men, too.

Mrs. Furious said...

lol... Preppy Mama,
when she first said it my mind was in rewind trying to remember if I had just said it (not the dragon part). I do swear in front of her but not in conversation to her (of course) so I like to think it goes over her head. As of yet she has never quoted me. She does say "God Lord" when she's *swearing* which is hilarious as she is trying to mimic me but is blending two things together (since Oh Lord and Good God are my two appropriate swear replacements).



Mr F,
that was a good one ;)


Feener,
I've always maintained that as long as they know when it is and isn't appropriate to swear will be coming out alright.... ;)




Tina,
so does that mean you don't swear or you just don't let your kids listen to hardcore (albeit intertaining) rock? ;)

MommyTime said...

I'm laughing because angie's tony and I just had a shared moment of shock on NY's Eve over a song that seemed completely cheery, light and innocuous, until the word FUCK and the phrase "AM I FUCKED?" suddenly appeared in the middle of it. Maybe it was this song?!?! Kind of shocking where there are toddlers in the room, no?

MommyTime said...

Robin, I hear you on the "ass" thing. Son has decided that "per-ber" is a bad bad word. I'm sure he heard pervert somewhere, though I can't for the life of me imagine where, and since I don't want to define it for him, I haven't corrected his pronunciation, in the vain hope that if (when) he says this out in public, no one will get what he's trying to say. Where DO they hear this stuff?

Mrs. Furious said...

Robin,

the song is actually very funny and benign until the end where apparently it goes a little crazy.

They are a band called "The Sound of Urchin"... they are now a pretty hardcore rock band... not so much when they started out but the label they signed with really pushed them in that direction.
I wonder if he'll be able to find it the song is called:
Green Green Gold it is actually very kid friendly in the begining... if you send me your email I can email it to you if he can't find it online.

Mrs. Furious said...

MommyTime,
No different song. The funny thing is we have had dance parties to this song several times (it is a great song) and I never hear the end little weird fuckin' dragons part before. Once I was alerted I could hear it loud and clear! Then I noticed all of their songs are filled with swearing... oops.

emmyjw said...

LOL!!!I was feeling guilty the other day because Ella who just turned 3 kept saying she couldn't find her freakin shoes and Langston who just turned 5 said "what the hell is that?". None of them has ever dropped the f bomb though, but my 14 yr old says she hears my dad do it a lot during football games...bad grandpa

Mrs. Furious said...

Emmy,
Kid has been known to say "freakin" upon occassion her own self.
I was pretty surprised when Kid busted out the real deal but I think because she was singing a song she figured that was different. I mean she has hear the word before and has never said it. Watch now she'll say it all the time. That happened with "douche bag"... which we might have called Canine and then she got confused with "trash bag" making for some very funny conversations!

Julie said...

Just this morning, my little one, M, said that his older brother was being "a pain the ass."

I don't know where he heard that before;)

I just pray that M. doesn't say this shit in school.

Julie said...

Kid has been known to say "freakin" upon occassion her own self.

So has M...which always puts me in the dilemma...it's hard to be taken seriously as a mom when I "scold" him for saying it when I am laughing.

Sarah said...

Wow Mrs F, funny, but now how do you make her stop swearing?

Totally off topic, you know you're ultra fancy scale you bought that does the body composition? How do you like it? I've heard scales like that are very sensitive to how much water you've consumed that day, etc etc. Do you find it's accurate or what?

emmyjw said...

Douche bag LOL that gives me some major highschool flashbacks.

Mrs. Furious said...

Sarah,

the funny thing is I haven't had a lot of fluctuation. I had a cheaper model in the past (and 7 years older) that did fluctuate quite a bit and I felt it was only accurate once a month (which that literature suggested). So that hasn't been an issue. I am getting my periods again so I do often go up 2 pounds and maybe 1% right before that and then back down but on a daily level it is really consistent. It says to weigh in the afternoon as far from eating, drinking & exercising.... and yes it is lower then.... but for me I'm using at a measuring tool. So I just record my morning % along with my morning weight and note a decrease from that as progress.

As for swearing, I don't worry about it. Kid has never said fuckin' before so I'll worry if she says it again. I think whether you say "shoot" or "shit" is personal preference and I don't distinguish too much of a difference between the two. The truth is people need a word to use to express a feeling that is shorter than "I'm really disappointed to find this..." We swear around the house at times... but not ever at people or about people and most often in a college-y exaggerative adjective "I'm funny" way... which I think actually has made it hard for her to know what they mean and she has never said it before. She does now that I say "oh god" and "good lord" when I find a disaster and she does mimic that big time.

Mrs. Furious said...

Julie,
"I just pray that M. doesn't say this shit in school."

my thought is... if you don't say it out of the house then they probably won't either. I mean they are incorporating how you use it.



Emmy,
Yeah Canine has brought out a lot of old school name calling!

Gigs said...

This has happened in our house with "ass". Sadly my son has been caught yelling this out in the yard. At his friends. Now I know exactly how fast I can get him into the house... Bringing down the neighborhood with our white-trash selves.

On another note, I would like to recommend my awesome "electrical" blanket to you. It is made by Perfect Fit and it is very soft as far as heating blankets go. I have a twin size one which I put on my side of the bed so my husband doesn't boil. It is also great for the couch.

Gigs said...

I guess I should clarify that we also don't use these words in a malicious "at or about people" way at our house either. But you never know what your kid is going to take and run with. It may be because my guys are kinda older too. I'm sure they hear stuff and school and from their friends with older siblings etc. When my kids rode a bus to school, they heard a LOT of things I would never have chosen to expose them to.

Robin said...

Hey Mrs. F-
I had a cheaper model in the past (and 7 years older) that did fluctuate quite a bit

Was the old one a Tanita? I have the Tanita Innerscan model just below yours and I am wondering if it will be as accurate. I've had mine for a while (maybe a year) but haven't used it consistently enough to know how accurate it is.

Mrs. Furious said...

Gigs,

thanks for the recommendation... I'm using ours because it is COLD but I was kind of expecting something softer and thicker.


and the school influence does make things trickier. Kid might know bigger swear words but we are really strict about politeness (yes it is an interesting dichotomy) and being rude irks me much more than an f-bomb any day... as long as it is used as in "fuckin dragons" and not "fuck you" ;)

I mean I guess that is the whole thing... we are prone to say "that was motherfucking delicious" "or that was fucking funny"... she has no frame of reference for it actually being a "bad" word...her parents just spent their formative adult years in NYC. But when she goes to school is when she might hear them used more appropriately and then we'll have a problem.

Mrs. Furious said...

Robin,

yeah it was a Tanita... but it was REALLY old. I feel the technology has got to be better. And if yours is new I'm sure the only difference between ours is the features... mine has a LOT of features. All I can say is try to use it at a consistent time (and I did use it daily) and write it down and you should know in short order if it is steady or not.

Julie said...

But you never know what your kid is going to take and run with.

Oh, Gigs, I know what you are talking about. My oldest (almost 8) NEVER says anything, but the younger one, M, is another story. Last year, in preschool, he would tell this one kid that he hated him...to his face...and then add, "no, seriously, i hate you." So I can totally see him calling a kid in his class a pain in the ass. Although, in the car this morning on the way to school, he did refer to something as "a pain in the butt", which made me feel like maybe he does filter his words a bit in public.

For the record, I do not call my kids "a pain in the ass". Well, not out loud. But he definitely gets his potty mouth from me, not my husband. And then he runs with it and makes it all his own (he had a thing for calling me "old lady" in public when he was like 3 and 4. That was really funny AND embarrassing. I swear I have no idea where he got that from and I did not know how to make him stop!

Mrs. Furious said...

Julie,
"he had a thing for calling me "old lady" in public when he was like 3 and 4"
LOL... now that is funny!!!


And for the record I am sorry I made my qualifying statements. I seem to have started a defensive trend that I regret. Obviously we are all wonderful good mothers and I think anyone who is judging us is being... well... judgemental.

Gigs said...

Oh, don't be sorry! Hope I didn't sound defensive... sometimes without voice inflection these written things can take on a different tone!

I have always told my guys that more than good grades or awards and successes, I am most proud of them when people tell me how kind they are. And I really am. So that's our message, and hopefully that's what sinks in, even with the random swearing in the house!

Smoochiefrog said...

Tina,
so does that mean you don't swear or you just don't let your kids listen to hardcore (albeit intertaining) rock? ;)


Nope, I'm perfect doncha know!

We don't listen to rock music. M hears some at dance, but not here at the house. As far as cursing, K saw something the other day and blurted out "oh what the hell?". Good enough answer for ya?

Avery Gray said...

Naughty Mr. F! Has he never heard of radio edits?

Mrs. Furious said...

Oops guys it looks like I missed some comments!

Gigs,
I just didn't want people to feel that they need to justify themselves... I did do that and then I wished I hadn't.
But yes I couldn't agree more... who you are and how you treat people is far more important than how colorful your language is.



Tina,
no rock music. ever? no varieties of rock? interesting.


Avery Grey,
apparently not! ;)

Deb said...

"They looked 21 when I let them into the club!"


That had to be one of Mr. F's funniest lines ever.

Unfortunately, we tend to use "fucking" a lot in our everday language, as well, for much the same reason the F's do. So far, my kid hasn't caught on, but we were at dinner with friends last night and their 4-year-old exclaimed, "I am ALLL about food!" His parents were horrified, and I thought, "Well, shit... my kid is going to make them drop dead in their chairs when he finally lets loose."

Mrs. Furious said...

Deb,
Kid just walked into the kitchen this afternoon (she likes to look at her reflection in the stove) singing "fuckin' fuckin' dragons" and I said "you know that isn't really a good word" and she got kind of embarrassed (and I felt bad and like a complete hypocrite... because I use it like a word of praise every fucking day) and she said "I'm just singing" so I caved and said "I know, just don't say it at school or to other people." and she said "I know that"
We'll see.
When she was in her "douche bag" phase she did say that to her grandparents (my in laws) and that did not go over well... but it was hilarious!
