Bad Influences

Some people take their kids out of public school to get them away from the bad influences. After listening to my 21 month old sing, "Holy Booty" all the way home from the outskirts of town last night, I'm beginning to wonder if I should send her to public school to get her away from the bad influence of my almost four year old.


Maybe you just need to set up a reform school inside your house and send the lil' juvenile deliquent student there.

Yeah, I had to apologize to DD3's preschool teachers when she was two and said the word "stupid." I told the teachers, "She has older brothers." I couldn't blame anybody else. So I send her to preschool to corrupt all of the innocent first-born children.

Hey, that's some pretty advanced oral skillz for a not-yet-two-year old! Mine doesn't even really sing yet. He doesn't say "holy" either!

Okay. I will cheerfully purchase whatever bandwidth you need to start airing these anthems for us. Personally, I would like to start with "Hallelujah! mine the glory!" but "Holy booty" would be all right with me, too.

If I ever record one, I'll try to share it. I'm decent at getting the main events saved in still shots, but I never think to turn the camera on to movie mode. I'll try to do better.

Little Miss Stubborn, age 3 1/2, did ballet camp for a week this summer (5 mornings). The week's focus was on a particular ballet, and her week was "Sleeping Beauty." So proud of herself, she would tell anybody within earshot how "I go to sleeping Booty camp!"

After a couple of horrified reactions, she locked onto it as being one of the magic words much like a safecracker hearing the golden fall of a tumbler into the locking device. And with that, it became the summer of Booty! in Casa LLamabutcher.

I've been corrected by The Dear One: it was "Seeping Booty"
