It's Not Me - It's You.
"What In The Heck?! " is the two year old's favorite phrase.
Usually stated very LOUDLY
I blame the seven year old.
I may have to take responsibility for "Great, that's just great" - who knew two year olds could pull off sarcasm?
Here's the thing about kids. They are always getting you in trouble.
"What in the heck!" from the mouth of a two year old is apparently unacceptable.
Frankly, considering what she might say I was pretty happy with heck.
I feel the scorn of Joe Public when she lets it fly at the store etc.
She is such a minx.
I think I'm going to take the power back. Next time she lets 'heck' fly in public I'm going to state loudly,
"Oh that's awful - using language like that, shocking!"
If I wear my best angelic smile maybe I can deflect the blame.
She said it after all - why am I taking the heat?
Deflection Parenting - my new approach.
