Echo

Last Saturday I was running some errands with Lumpyhead. While toodling through a parking lot, I encountered a woman whose ability to drive her car was impaired by extreme stupidity.

I expressed my displeasure.

My words were immediately parroted from the back seat. Clearly and perfectly.

Lumpyhead: Laydee? WAHT da fuhk?

I am an awesome mom and/or role model.

Bump is really hoping Lumpyhead busts out with his rockin' new phrase in Florida, so he can rat me out to Grammy.

That's great. I started editing my comments in the car only to have one of the monkeys in the back fill in the word that used to be used. There's no winning.

I heard somewhere that, as long as you don't make a fuss of them parroting your cussing, they won't get carried away with telling everyone the new word they learned.

Does LPH want to have a playdate with my boys, the

When mine was 2, we were driving somewhere when someone cut us off. My husband leaned on the horn, and sonnyboy yelled, "come on, asshole!" Yah. Good boy.

I had this happen in a restaurant. Left a fat tip.

I'm reading this at work - and frankly I shouldn't be. Not only because I'm not technically allowed to be perusing blogs, but also because I can't seem to stiffle my laughter. People keep looking down the hall at me because I am sitting at a desk by myself and completely cracking up. This is hilarious! My kids (5 and 3) say "Damnit!" with regularity.

My friend's son (really I swear, it IS my friend's son!) would yell out "MUCK! MUCK!" out the open window from his perch in the middle of the back seat. One day it dawned on my friend that the word he was trying to say was "Schmuck".
