"Shut up"

She is 22mo and keeps saying it to her baby doll when she pushes her round in the buggy.

Ive tried to encourage her to say "shhhh there there" or similar and clearly its a doll but I really dont like that she has learnt this expression.

I honestly dont know where its come from. Am I being PFB to not want "shut up" said to my child?

Have tears streaming down my face at "love you too bastard" and 'bye take care, fuckers'

When I regain the power of speech I am off to tell dh so we can adopt these fabulous new expressions.

Sorry OP

We have "sit down" and "right now" delivered in very authoritative tones from DS (2.11). I suspect peppa pig (hopefully not pre school)

I ve just been laughing out loud at "love you too bastard"

Hehe

FrigginRexManningDay Sat 07-Sep-13 14:28:09

Pml @ love you bastard.

Reminds me of the eldest calling my sister a bitch. Its not a word we use in my family so no idea where it came from. Or my second and her love of proclaiming Fucking hell. Most notably when she was in my mums looking outside and remarked Its raining and there's my washing out. Fucking hell.

ThreeMyselfAndI Sat 07-Sep-13 14:27:16

No they genuinely don't swear, they find it that funny that she does, the laughing definitely encourages but I know it didn't originate from them.

MortifiedAdams Sat 07-Sep-13 14:23:56

Think youve found your culprits!

ThreeMyselfAndI Sat 07-Sep-13 14:19:41

I know it's awful we're now ignoring it and hoping she stops, dd1&2 sniggering isn't helping either.

blush

MortifiedAdams Sat 07-Sep-13 14:15:41

shock oh my goodness!!

ThreeMyselfAndI Sat 07-Sep-13 14:14:48

Our 19 month old has picked up 'arsehole bastards' not from myself of dh. She now whispers it at me ( only me ) and if I ask her what did you just say she replies baba and laughs hmm.

I told her the other day I love you, she replied love you bastard!!

It's not funny and we've no idea where its came from, wonders if she's trying to tell me something and it's only ever said to me.

Shut up I would be ok with.

MummyPig24 Sat 07-Sep-13 14:07:47

Dd is 3 and can be very rough with her dolls and she tells them off and puts them on time out. I put her on time out but I'm never rough. Maybe she has played with other children who have treated the dolls in that way. A lot of the time she is gentle and loving towards them.

I agree that their play doesn't always represent real life.

thebody Sat 07-Sep-13 14:05:09

could have been shut the fuck up! that would be worse.

piano, love the bite me. that's my kind of girl toddler.😄

canweseethebunnies Sat 07-Sep-13 14:03:04

jointhedots My dd has said that before and I think it comes from an episode of Peppa Pig where they are talking to wasps!

It's very commonly used though isn't it, she could have heard it anywhere? You'll just have to tell her you don't want to hear it if that's how you feel, there will be other things too sooner or later. It's fine said some ways, a bit aggressive perhaps other ways.

I grew up in a house where it was used freely and not in an offensive way at all, just between us all, even though we weren't allowed to say bum, belly, fart or oh my God and it was only when I first ventured onto MN I realised that some people don't like it.

pianodoodle Sat 07-Sep-13 13:49:05

Mine is 26 months she doesn't say "shut up" but I heard her say "bite me" the other day...?

Is it normal for them to be cross with toys? I've heard DD in her room telling them all off!

Mine used to say "go away" at this age - from another boy at nursery. It got really annoying as he used to say it when I asked him to do something he didn't like. I tried gritting my teeth and thinking that at least he knew how to use it in context, but it was bloody annoying!

onlysettleforbutterflies Sat 07-Sep-13 13:45:59

My ds went through a phase of saying that too, I was mortified and hoped no one thought he'd heard it from us. He soon stopped and started saying go away instead hmm.

JoinTheDots Sat 07-Sep-13 13:40:26

Mine said to me "Go away you little pest!" which I have never said to her, I think she got it from pre-school, I just hope it was from one of the other children and not one of the staff...

cfc Sat 07-Sep-13 13:38:28

Some of these have made me laugh! Sorry op, I'm no help am I?

My DS had his twin dolls in their pram when he was 3. He walked past me whilst I was cooking and I asked blithely asked him "how're the babies?" Whilst not really taking my eye off the job at hand. He stopped, rolled his eyes and said in an exasperated tone "they're killing each other"!!

It was like listening to myself on the phone to my mother when she asks about my brood!!
