Toddler Talk, volume 2

A conversation with my three year old today:

Her: We don’t say ‘Oh Shit.’

Me: That’s right, we don’t.

Her: Kids don’t say Oh Shit and grown ups don’t say Oh Shit either.

Me: That’s correct. No one should say it.

Her: But we CAN say ‘Doggone It!’

Me: Doggone It is fine, yes.

Her: But dogs don’t like that, do they?

(Pause)

Me: Hmm. That’s a good point. I hadn’t thought of–

Her: Do crabs eat peanut butter?
