Got us a little smarty pants..........

so Nash has picked up on some bad language, remember this post??
Well the F-bomb has been dropped at school frequently lately. The math and writing is getting more difficult for him, and so his reactions are well.....appropriate but not for 2nd graders!

So we started using the term "potty words" and told him if he needed to say those "potty words" he needed to go to the bathroom to say them, that we will not listen to them. It's helping a little, but we just started it so who knows what will happen at school. I let them know our new tactic though.

So.... Nash cursed in the shower, and Jeff said he didn't want to hear any "potty words"....and Nash said

"But I am in the bathroom!"

Guess its working...........
