Now that’s crappy

Two weekends ago, Jody took Ava out to run errands in the morning like they do every Saturday. They had a productive time out, but upon arriving back home Jody confessed, “I’m a crappy dad. I forgot to get Ava lunch.” Oops. She was indeed a bit hungry so we got her fed and all was well.

Fast forward to three days later. I was running late with getting Ava to her last morning of summer camp at the farm. (Jody worked from home that morning so in having him around to help out, I didn’t stay on task like I usually do when I’m doing it alone, and fell woefully behind schedule.) As we were driving there, I explained to her that she would be getting there a little bit late and apologized that I didn’t have my stuff together on time that morning. She replied matter of factly, “You’re a crappy mom.” D’oh!

I kind of figured she’d eventually pick up the only real swear word we use around here on a regular basis. I just didn’t think it would be used quite like that. :oP Thanks, crappy dad.

  1. LOL!! In Jody’s defense, I’ve forgotten to feed the kids too. Once we were at a restaurant at 11am and S was coming unglued and it finally dawned on me….he hadn’t eaten yet. D’Oh! In my defense we have lots of food around, available to him – I failed to ask him if he’d eaten or if he wanted something else.

    But back to the point of the post. That’s hilarious!! Whenever S comes up with a gem like that T looks at me….and I swear it’s not always my fault!

  2. LOL! Yes, I have noticed the kids picking up our language more and more, too. We (I) really need to watch what we say going forward. ;)

  3. Ohh that’s rich! It’s nice to hear it from those sweet little mouths isn’t it? We’ve had to break Joshua of saying “dang” which he got from me. :) But at least it never accompanies an insult!

  4. Lol,
    I have a friend that when she was around 2 her and her Dad were in the truck and a men cut them off so the Dad say for “forF@#$ sake”

    later that after noon my friend was in the living room playing and her Mom and Dad reading then she drop her doll and said ” for fuss cake” that was the last time her Dad use that kind of laungage around her lol!
