Don't you love it when your kids are parrots? It can be embarrassing, but laughable too. I however, will be more careful in the future.
Hubby took today off, to finish some more work here at the house. I offered to pick up both kids so he wouldn't have to stop. Now, why is it when you are running late, everyone on the road in front of you becomes a "lookie-loo" and drives like they're in a parade? You'd think it was Leaf Peeper season in Vermont or something. Ten minutes late, I pull into my daycare provider's street, only to be behind a teenaged couple holding hands, walking down the MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. I mutter out loud, "C'mon Lovebirds, get outta the road!" They heard the car and moved over, and as I drove past I was surprised to find out that it was my daycare provider's son! I didn't mention this to my older son, but it didn't matter. We walked into the house and Sean greeted us enthusiastically. As I was putting his shoes on, I hear the son come in with his girlfriend, and a little six-year-old voice say "Kevin, I'm sorry my Mom said bad words about you being in the road." I try to hush him, but it's just too late. Luckily, "Kevin" is taking it in stride and his parents are laughing. So I do too, and realize that it could've been much, much worse.
On the way home we have a nice discussion about how it's not cool to repeat EVERYTHING Mama says and that's calling "throwing someone under the bus." I mean really, the occasional profanity (Sean saying "Oh Jesus" or Dammit!) is bad enough. And when did "Lovebird" become a bad word?? You have to laugh. :)
