My son has been swearing a lot lately. Well kind of. Thankfully he doesn’t know any real curse words (a minor miracle considering my wife’s trenchant mouth), so he tends to make them up.

The following is a list of swears the Bean uttered over one 24 hour period:

You nutter!
You bubbuh!
You Bubee!
Bo bo head!
You codbuddy!
You buddah!
You beedeh!
You nint!
Oh pony bide!
Hey, I love you!*

*I know it doesn’t read like a curse, but trust me the tone in which it was said was definitely swearing.

I think I've mentioned that my 3yo's new thing is "Aww, Nuts!"

Is it total Parent FAIL that I have to bite me tongue to keep from laughing whenever he says it?

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Shut up and Can't are two bad words in our house...

So what I'm saying is... I feel ya.

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Zen...Yeah, "aw nuts" is pretty funny.

Shelle...I agree. I grew up with a ban on "shut up". In fact, I still have trouble using it even as an adult.

Surfer Jay said...

it's all in the delivery. I got my boy to say aawww shucks. now he says it all the time.

HappyHourSue said...

I only say :automint" if I'm REALLY pissed.

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Jay...Yes, which is how my son turned love into a word of hurt.

Sue...I have started calling people "nutters" under my breath.

James (SeattleDad) said...

I think I hear George Carlin list those once.

Clearly he is honing his comedic talents.

SciFi Dad said...

I think Automint is my new favourite.

Sundar said...

My 2-year old nephew shocked his parents when they heard him say *mother fucker*. Not just once but several times. Later on, much to their relief, it turned out that he was saying 'another freckle', referring to freckles on his mom's arm.

Daddy Geek Boy said...

James...Little known fact, Automint was number #8 on Carlin's list.

SciFi...It's a pretty strong curse, I do admit.

Sundar...The Bean used to call dates "date grapes" but it sounded like "date rape". He used to say, "I wanna date rape!"

Alan said...

I dunno, I think I'd rather be called an Automint than a codbuddy.

Vancetastic said...

Isn't "pooter" a synonym for "vagina"? He may be on to a real one there.

Also, "nutter" is a term that's really used among Australians. We are calling people "nutters" all the time. As you can probably guess, it translates to "crazy person."

Heff said...

Perhaps he wouldn't curse if he wasn't called "the bean".

just sayin'.

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Alan...Hmmm, not so sure about that. Codbuddy at least has "buddy" in it.

Vance...I think you're thinking of "cooter" but maybe you're right. Also on the "nutter" thing...? That's genius!

Heff...The Bean is his identity protecting internet handle. His Bruce Wayne to his Batman, if you will. Thanks for reading and commenting.
