(It is Tuesday and I have a True Story to share! Yep, I am linking up with Rachel and Mr. Daddy today.)
Recently I found myself having an uncomfortable conversation with my 1st grader. You see, we TRY to protect our kids' young minds from that of the world. We carefully monitor what TV shows they watch, what movies fill their minds, what video games fill their time, and what music fills the air in our home and cars. Call us over protective, but we like to call it common sense.
The other day, Bruiser was playing an NFL game on our PlayStation 2. It was handed down to us from my very techie brother. (Ya know, because PlayStation 2 is so yesterday.) All of the games came from my brother as well. I had carefully sifted through the hand me downs and only had the "approved" games out for play.
Or so I thought.
I was in the room when Bruiser suddenly gasped and said, "Mom, they just said the "S" word!"
At first, I didn't know what was more horrifying: Them using the "S" word on a PlayStation game, or Bruiser knowing what the "S" word was!
Bruiser was horrified, too. "Mom, I can't believe they said the 'S' word!"
"I know, Bruiser. That IS awful," I said. Then, my curiosity got the best of me. "Can you whisper the word in my ear?"
He leaned in closely and, in a very disgusted voice, whispered, "They said, 'Shut up.'"
I took a deep breath as I reassured him that he is right, that is a very unkind thing to say to someone.
I LOVE THIS KID!
