Often, it’s hilarious. Sometimes, he’ll come up to me and say, “I know what we’re going to do today, Ferb!” (Although his enunciation leaves something to be desired, it’s clear to me what he’s saying.)
Sometimes it’s fairly innocuous, like when he says “Underwear pants!” or “Hey, what’s that for?”
And sometimes it’s downright rude or disrespectful, like yesterday when he said to me, “Hey, you not the boss of me!”
Most of his undesirable quotes he gets from his eight-year-old brother. Most. Words like “stupid” and “loser” and “liar” and other things his brother isn’t supposed to say but sound even worse coming from a toddler.
And sometimes he repeats things Mommy and Daddy say. Mostly we watch our mouths, but nothing makes you check your language quicker than hearing a toddler say, “What the?” from the back seat right after you’ve said it to the driver who just cut you off in traffic.
Kids repeat what they hear. And they imitate what they see. Be aware of what you do and say. You never know who might be watching and learning from your example.
