Out of the mouths of babes 21: Magical abilities edition

I don't understand how kids have the power to only hear the bad words you say; autistic and not, across the universe, they all can do it. It's like they have magical abilities. Observe:

Hubs (trying to find an address on his smartphone and inaudibly muttering to himself): mutter mutter mutter mutter... crash my phone ... mutter mutter mutter... flash .... mutter mutter mutter mutter .... renders like absolute crap .... mutter mutter mutter mutter ... finally loading ... mutter mutter mutter ...

Child 2: LIKE ABSOLUTE CRAP?????

HAHAHAHA!!!!

Reminds me of the time I dropped a whole roasted chicken and the dog snatched it up and ran away with it. I screamed, "SH*T!" and for three hours my NON VERBAL CHILD said, "Sh*t. Sh*t. Sh*t."

Gah Bless Echolalia.

I think "dog shit" might have been one of my autie kid's first words!

I used to swear unabashedly around Deaf kid; until I heard him say, in perfect context:

"Awww Shuck!!!"

Proud moment for me indeed.

LOL... that is too funny, I remember the time my son said Sh*t when he had NEVER pronounced any words without deleting the first letter.

At about age three, Julia was being held by a friend of mine, and she looked him straight in the eye and said, "That's Bullshit!"

Like DG said, "Gah bless echolalia" :-)

Once I was in my 15yr olds room, he was playing some online game with his friends. He uttered the word "friggin'". I told him I didn't want him to use that word. He protested saying that it wasn't really a "bad" word. I told him it was a gateway word to much worse language and that I always watch my language around him and his friends so I expected the same kind of courtesy. He said "oh, come on dad, you never swear, you aren't really watching your language". So I responded with " Listen mother fucker, you and your shit eating friends sit here in my house playing these faggoty ass games, sitting on your Goddamn asses and I don't say one fucking word, I have every right to get pissed off and come in here to fuck you dick heads up". He interrupted me with "No MAS!! We get it!!".
That was the lass "friggin'" I ever heard out of any of them.

Priceless story, Jilly. I'll have you know that my husband considers Child 2 his personal hero because of his "I don't want to drink from a cup that tries to trick cats." Seriously...he brings that up about every 2 weeks.

Claire said...

My daugther did not know the "f" word pre-stroke. Post-stroke, she developed hypersensitive hearing. One day, in another part of the house, and under his breath, my husband swore at the computer. She could hardly talk at the time...picked it up immediately, clear as a bell "fuck!" She's been using it ever since, has worked into songs and poetry and once repeated it ever so sweetly to the school principle...a real uptight guy. Classic!! She's my hero...just before you and that other chick with the autistic kid.

There is so much awesome happening in the comments here.

Mrs. Dolittle: I think that's the greatest comment I've ever gotten. EVER.

You have to write this stuff down and keep it for years to come! Just too funny!

Yesterday, out to dinner with autismarmymom and our kiddies. Autismarmymom had to be corrected 5 times by my daughter for naughty words.

In her defense, "stupid" was usually the offensive word and my daughter is kind of a bossy tateltale.

Lynn said...

I cannot reasonably be expected strike the word "stupid" from my vocabulary. You'd have thought from her reaction that I'd dropped the nastiest swear word ever invented. Who considers "stupid" a bad word????

Ashley said...

I'm with ya, Lynn, 'cause Caleb does. He gasps every time. And then I usually respond with an "Oh crap," and that gets an even bigger gasp and it all ends with a "shoot" and Grace running around repeating it all and Caleb gasping away.

Oh, what a fool I've been to not follow you over from BadWords before.

Idiot idiot idiot.
