They love to do what they call their homework’s with me when I come over.I now spend millions of dollars on work books so we can have fun at the table.We had two new books on thinking and they were loving it.The little dude gets possessive with me at times and tries to get Landyn out of the picture but I won’t let him.As we were deciding if the horse goes in the barn or the house our conversation went like this,
“Nana,Lannon said da F word.”
I look at Landyn sitting next to me and my body immediately turns hot.She looks like a little angel with that smile she has that is the exact replica of her mother’s.She is so happy to be included I don’t know if she even knew he was trying to throw her under the bus.I am also getting sick to my stomach thinking he is too little to know what the F word is and mad that he even knows about it.
“Collin that is enough.”
“A ha Lannon said da F word in my room last night and I kicked her out!”
Now Landyn is looking at me worried because they are not allowed to say things like that and she knows it.She looks scared and I am wondering how this word got into their vocabulary.Nobody swears around here and if they get caught by their mother I have seen her bring out a bar of soap.It has happened to Collin because I witnessed it about six months ago when he said the slang for feces and it wasn’t poop.
It is then little Landyn pipes up and says,”But I did Nana I did.”
“I don’t want that kind of language around here and if you two are going to talk like that I am going home.”
Landyn looks nervous and doesn’t say any more but not the little dude.He looks right at me hoping she is in BIG TROUBLE because I said I would go home and continues with “A ha she said fart and I kicked her out.”
All I can think is thank you Lord in heaven that fart is the four letter word that my babies think is so bad.It is so hard to keep them innocent even at three because they are out in the world and I hate that.I am so grateful my grandkids have Brooke and Mike and at this moment I treasure them as parents to the twins.
How did the night end do you ask? We had a discussion on the proper way to say passing gas and I have to say it turned into laughing and fart noises.As I always say thank you Lord for grandkids.They have the ability to send me into orbit one second and bring me back the next.
