Any time anyone ever says a curse word, Charlotte immediately screams at them and says “you said a bad word! you go in time out! don’t say that word!” This happens a lot.
Last week we were in CVS and I was looking for the razors that were on sale. The brand happened to be Schick and as I was looking for them I was muttering out loud to myself saying where are the Schick ones? Charlotte immediately went into word police mode and I had to try to explain to her that Schick may sound like a bad word but it isn’t. It’s the name of a razor, yada yada yada.
And now, every time Charlotte does something that would require an utterance of “oh shit,” she just starts saying “oh Schick! oh Schick!” and I will ask her what did you just say? And she’ll look at me and say, “MOMMY. Schick isn’t a bad word. It’s a razor.” Then she’ll smile and walk away, because she knows she got me.
This kid is too smart sometimes.
