The kid just swore

Just stop for a second and stop the judgement. I’ll give you your 15 seconds of judge sometime soon.


Imagine the scene, I step out of the shower and the kid is sitting directly opposite me putting on her socks. 

Kid: Mommy, why do you say fuckin when you get mad at me?

*cue shocked facial expression and laughter*

Me: What? Why do I say what?

Kid: Mommy, why do you say fuckin when you get mad at me?

*cue more laughter because apparently I am a terrible mother & don’t know how to handle situations in an adult way*

Me: Oh. Uhmm, I only say it when I’m really upset but I mustn’t hey

Kid: Yes, you mustn’t say fuckin

Me: Jesus doesn’t like it when you say that word. It’s a bad word. It’s a swear word.

Kid: *acting very shocked that I have now accused her of swearing* I never said it, you did

Me: I know, it’s very bad. I won’t say it again. You mustn’t it again, ok? *soon after I mouthed WTF*

Kid: Yes, I won’t say it again


Ok, here you go……….your 15 seconds of judge

1. For me allowing my 5 year old daughter to see me naked

2. For cussing infront of her


I cuss infront of her when I am completely 100% bedonnered. It’s just me and her. The 2 of us. So when I’ve just had enough of everything, swearing is my way of releasing that tension because it’s either that or punching a wall. I’ve tried screaming into a pillow – it does not work.

Also, I cussed infront of her like months ago – she needs to chill

As for the naked part – as parents, we hardly get time to do anything, let alone on our own so yip, that’s my reasoning.

Driving the point home? I typed this post, on my phone while I was on the loo and even then she interuppted me to tell me

” I love you”

“Sorry I’m just collecting my cards” 


“Kid: Mama, I don’t have enough fresh air

Me: Huh? What?

Kid: It’s being cancelled”

  1. Hahaha at her fresh air bring cancelled! Don’t worry so much. I do the same thing. I cuss all the time in front of my boys but try to explain to them that only “big people” can say those words. I’ve tried to better at not swearing in front of them though ? It’s terrible how judgemental some parents can be. No judging here as I’ve done the same before ?

    1. Thank you so much Kim! You’re always such a fantastic blog participant – send me your email address. Would love to send you a Nifty250 voucher. I thought the cussing was hilarious, I could not stop laughing ?
