New Words

You may think from the title that this is a post about Munchkin. You would be wrong.

ET is in Kindergarten. He has been going for nearly three weeks now. He has learned some new words from school...although he keeps saying that he just thought them up.

"What the hell is that?!" Followed by a discussion about why we do not say that.

"Dick." He said this means he is upset about something. Another discussion ensued.

I am impressed at the level of learning in kindergarten! I just hope that he isn't teaching his classmates anything inappropriate.

After watching the History Channel this morning about the September 11th Terrorist Attacks, and answering his many questions with the honesty that a 5 year old can understand, I made sure to tell him not to talk about it at school. Because, while we feel he is old enough to be told about it, other parents may not feel the same way. He has decided that he will just turn into Batman and kill all the bad people. Which, of course, prompted a discussion on the soldiers who are giving life and limb so that this type of thing doesn't happen again. He decided that Batman is a soldier.

The innocence of a child! I hope he does become Batman... this world could use a guy like him. We've had to talk to Paige about "kiss my a**". You gotta love those shock moments!

My little guy thinks the word "damn" is interchangeable with "dumb". We work on that. Apparently the neighbor boy shared that with him. Gotta love it.

Wow. We have yet to have the "you cannot say that word" past the normal potty words that they probably pick up in nursery like pee, poop, crap. etc. So I'm glad for that. I'm not quite sure what I would do if they came home spouting swears. LOL. So, good job! LOL Keep up the good work. (So is Spiderman totally done with now?)

It's crazy that he's learning these words in kindergarten already! You'd think he'd have to wait until at least 1st grade or something....
