My child’s first words are going to be “Godammit” followed by “for fuck sakes.” I don’t mean to swear. It’s a bad habit that I can’t seem to break. Like this morning. I was trying to vacuum and the way the cord was wound it kept popping out of the socket – like 3 times. And each time I responded with a “godammit.” Wouldn’t you know it, my daughter (bless her little heart wanted to help mommy vacuum) was standing right there. Then while making lunch my blessed little being decided to shake the child gate wildly while perfecting the perfect little whine. And of course under my breath I uttered, “for fuck sakes.” I curious, what’s your child’s first word going to be? And I’m not talking nana, mama, dada, ball, hi, bye, binky.
