Curse Words and Children

OnSugar Blog: Mourning the Four Letter Word

Lots of mamas like to think (and rhyme) out loud, and CaliChic is one of them. Mourning the Four Letter Word comes from her OnSugar blog, Work it Momma.

The first child surely finds a way
Tto change the way we live our days.
Mostly for good
Though if I could,
Some things would never go away.
In the life of the working mom,
Nothing quite supplants the f-bomb.
It’s used to profess
Our level of stress
So we can go home cool and calm.
Now I mourn the four-letter word
and the fist, and the honk, and the bird.
I never knew
I would bid them adieu
‘Til the day something shameful occurred.
On the day our baby could walk,
it turned out he also could talk!
A parrot on cue,
he chirped one F – U
And left mommy and daddy in shock.
My message to parents out there,
someday you will learn not to swear.
Even habits this deep
you’ll replace with a beep
the day you have your little scare!
