Well I guess it was bound to happen.
Dexter swore. In fact, he’s done it a few times. His phrase of choice?
I’ll admit, this isn’t the first swear I was expecting. If anything I was expecting it to be ‘fucking cat’ as thats a regular from my mouth.
The first time we heard him say it, we were both so shocked, we looked at each other and then tried not to laugh. I hid my face in a cushion and Liam looked away. Just once, we could probably have ignored but he’s since said it a couple of times and I’ve had to ask him not to say it ‘because its not very nice’. The last couple of days have been swear free so I think we are out of the woods but who knows.
I totally take the blame myself. I swear like no ones business but just kinda hoped he wouldn’t notice. Liam and I have been making a massive effort to not swear around him anymore but its so hard!! We don’t swear to be malicious, they’re just words we use between ourselves and we never swear ‘at’ each other, just in general conversation, but who am I trying to kid? These darn toddlers notice everything!!!
What do you say instead of swear words? My mind is completely blank!
