Kids are like little sponges. They do and say things they see adults and people on TV doing. Somethings we want them to do and say. Somethings we don't.

When Mica was 2 1/2 or so he was in the habit of saying, "God dammit!" We did our best to ignore it; not say it ourselves. I've read that not bringing attention to things like that will most likely make what they keep saying go away.

It was one week before Bible School. He was going with his cousin. Mica was at my parents house and said, "I want some God Damn chocolate." Grandpa Spiehs did his best to not laugh. He said, "Mica you really shouldn't say 'God Damn'." I was sure he'd get to Bible School and burn their ears with his taking the Lord's name in vein. Part of me couldn't stop laughing about it. I'm probably going to hell. Just saying. It was just so funny to me. Mica probably got it from Daddy or I. We had a talk with him about not saying, "God Damn"; after that talk he was fine.

Lately Mica has a bit of road rage. I was in line waiting for a fast food meal a few weeks ago. This particular place is never fast. I kept saying, "Come on! Hurry up. We don't have all day." Mica said something I know Daddy says, "Get with the program people!" Then this morning Mica said something I say frequently, "Come on lights; don't turn red!" We're always in a hurry it seems. Working full-time, swimming lessons, jujitsu, school, homework, open swim at the Y, Daddy works once a month at a gallery in the evenings, it just seems like we've generally got something going on all the time. I don't know how people do it with a lot of kids and kids being really into sports or some activity. We need to just SLOW down sometimes. We just can't do it all.

What about you, is there anything your kids have said or done that you didn't want them to? What did you do about it?
