It needs to be said here and now that this post contains the word fuck a lot. Just warning ya early in case y’all are easily offended. So brace yourselves now.
Little dude has a new word to add to his vocabulary.
He’s very good at pronouncing it. He can use it in context, appropriately and it is one of his high frequency words.
I’m very proud. In fact you could say………
As a matter of fcuk little dude just wandered into the lounge happy as clam skipping and swinging his arms “ohhhhh fuck ohhhh fuck” goes his little happy song.
The other day we were at the library and we were waiting to check out our books. Mumma is talking all about the librarian behind the desk and how she helps people to find books. Little dude slipped off the stair he was standing on and let rip”aww fuck” and I just keep chatting away not missing a beat.
And we’re sitting on the new couches having a chat and from the bedroom ….. ‘thar he blows’ “fuck fuck duck quack” We pause, there’s an eyebrow twitch and…..”duck quack quack yeeeeeeeeeeee fuck”
Having a wee stim making a happy ooooooooooooooooh noise “fuckfuck”
He banged his elbow walking through his bedroom door “ow fuck”
So we can tell from our reactions or lack there of that Ultimate Dadda and I are fairly casual speaking lads and lasses. We’re the first to call a spade a bloody great digger. We draw the line at the kids using fuck, and we never utter the “c” word except in moments of extreme and provocation and punctuation The mumbleteen gets fairly free use of damn, bugger, ass, shit but his favourite is reserved for “oh hell no!” circa Gabriel Iglesias The lass is allowed ‘dumbass’ So we’re liberal permissives with boundaries.
But the little dude is leaving us all in his fucking dust. So to speak.
And what are we doing about it? Not a fucking thing. But let me tell you why…….
Given that although he’s 8 with his lack of verbal skills and other such autism awesomness he is a perpetual 18month old so it is with all “toddlers” tell him not to do something and sure as shooting it’ll become his new favourite past time. react and it will give him sometging to feed off. Tell him no and he’s going to bellow it in all his glory.
Besides he’s a human, a person and he has rights. So surely on of his rights should be to swear. I’m down with that. As long as he’s not spelling it, or typing it into google I can always edit the fuck out of his schooling videos right?
Seriously though I worry anything I try to negate his awesome grasp of the word is just going to aggrevate the situation, so I’m hoping that like most of his words he’ll drop it soon enough through lack of reaction and we’ll move on until then it’s best to .
I have no idea.
Fucking peace yeah?
