I love it!

We haven't taught the toddler anything too terrible (except to shake his finger at the cat, and say 'No, no, no, no, no, Oscar!" - which comes out more like 'Doe, doe, doe, doe, DOE, Os-cah!"), but I can't wait to teach him stuff like this.

We're already pretty sure we're going to be the parents who get the calls from school that start "Mrs. S., do you know what your son said today?".

Granted, when we were visiting my mother a few weeks ago, I ran out to do an errand, and when I came back, she said "Your son said shit while you were gone". My first reply was "Did he use it in the right context?"

We are freakin' stellar parenting examples.
