Conversation in the car with my 12 year old on the way to take him to biodad's yesterday...

Mom - you know that the bus driver doesn't care if we swear.  You know what my favorite response to something when they say something stupid is? You know, like when I say something & than a few seconds later he says it like I DIDN'T just say it?  I say "No shit sherlock!" It's my new favorite saying.

You're getting you're mom's sarcastic genes kiddo!

Mom - what was your favorite cussword saying?

You know that you're grandparents weren't (and still aren't) ok with us swearing.  If we said a word that resembled a swear word within a 5 mile radius of your grandma that magic backhand of hers with knock us on the ground before we'd ever see it coming.  Couldn't say stupid or dumb or sucks or dang either.  She said they were all the same.  So we had our own little silly substitute words that we all used that I can't remember now.  Our school had population 200 for 7th-12th grade.  So everyone in town and all the school faculty knew your grandparents on a first name basis and would call them directly if they caught us swearing or breaking a rule.

But what about with Aunty Shorty? You said you could cuss up a storm around her!

Yes, honey, we would.   It was our way of getting them all out at once, since we couldn't use them 95% of the rest of the time.

Why couldn't you use them mom?

Why don't you call your grandmother? She'd love to explain it to you...

Favorite words ... the ones I knowingly used pushing our mother into calling me a Smarta.Ass! in public. Or a deserved slap across the mouth? NEVER! Fuck Never! Fuck! Dammit! Do you see the problem?

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
