To feel sad that DS (5) is so keen on telling the truth all the time?

OK so I am but still...

Earlier on I did a quite smelly botty bubble. It was SBD. DH unexpectedly came back into the room (thought he was in the shower) and said "OH MY GOD HAS SOMETHING DIED IN HERE??" I said "Ha ha no, little Cunting just parped." Little Cunting side eyes me and goes "No I DIDN'T. Fibber. It was YOU"

Also, in a fit of pique the other day I said something quite rude about a boy in his class (he has been physically hurting DS though) andimmediately I corrected myself "Mummy shouldn't have said that, mummy was wrong, please don't repeat that." As soon as I get him to the class door, DS spots his nemesis and says "Oh look there's <name I called him>!" then he looks at his teacher and says "Mummy said that name,she told me not to tell anyone though"

Just remembered another one from my precious DD -

"Eew, yuck, mummy I can smell poo. Did you blow off again?"

You are exceptionally classy, Bups. I've read about you in Burke's Peerage an' all.

Not quite the same but - DD1 (not quite 3) has taken on board the alliterative qualities of 'Silly Billy' and now applies it to ^everything. Yoghurt boggurt, rabbit babbit, Daddy Baddy. Guess what I am?

Ever tried to explain to a toddler why they shouldn't shout Mummy Bummy at full volume in the fruit & veg aisle, without making it even more amusing to them? Impossible.

Some people wouldn't know a light hearted thread if it came along and whipped out their judgy thongs right from their 'bottoms' arse is obviously very non classy grin

I'd had a few drinks the night before and The following day we saw my martial arts class instructor. I had decided to sack off training that night to spend the evening having dinner with husband as we hadn't seen each other all week.

Instructor asked was I training tonight and when I said no my 7 year old says "it's because she had too much alcohol last night".

I wouldn't have minded as much but it wasn't even the reason but I felt I would make it worse by denying it.

socharlotte Tue 29-Jan-13 09:33:13

What a classy lady you are hmm

I was told that discretion is a skill that is 'supposed' to come into play at age 6.
Its all very well when a cute 3 or 4 year old tells the truth/says what they think... mummy, why is that lady so old/fat/ have hairs on her chin.
But supposedly, by 6, they are supposed to have learnt the social skills, and have the empathy to , well, presumably, know that they wouldn't like it, thus not say it to others.
So when people say, oh he's 16/18/24 and still does it, I'm not sure that's o.k. There's blunt and there's abbrasive and then there's autiuistic. Fine line between them all me thinks.
It is just a developemnt of social skills. Op can work on that with her ds, as can we all.

BupcakesAndCunting Tue 29-Jan-13 08:18:36

Oh Zombie, I was wondering who that was, didn't have me specs on did I?!

LOL at calling Mike The Night a nob grin and at "he's a massive cock"

JoandMax Tue 29-Jan-13 07:22:54

Walking home with a few friends and their mums (who I don't know well) and someone going too fast in their car - one mum said "what a silly man going so fast". DS1 pipes up "Yes, he's a massive cock, that's what my Daddy says in the car"

In doctors waiting room biggish lady came out ahead of us. 3 year old pipes up 'that's a very fat doctor mummy' blush I now find myself distracting her every time I see someone larger. I tried explaining to her that saying that would make the lady feel sad but she didn't really take it in so I'm just waiting for it to happen again. I don't know where it came from either, we never comment on people's weight in front of her even our own. sad

DD (3) has just this morning asked very loudly why a lady in the hospital waiting room had no hair (she was clearly a chemotherapy patient, but luckily was lovely about it) and why another lady in the supermarket had only 3 teeth.

I have my own 6yr old backseat driver who keeps a close eye on my speed and tells when I'm 'breaking the law's and then loudly announces it to everyone at our destination. The problem is I don't speed - she just doesn't get that different roads have different speed limits.

BeaWheesht Tue 29-Jan-13 05:56:57

Most kids thiS age are honest- that's why when ds announced loudly in the supermarket 'mummy don't buy too much wine and don't drink it when you first wke up' people looked at me like I was a raging alcoholic. I have a drink maybe 3/4 times a year

YABU for using the term 'botty bubble'

Hi, Buppy.

Zombie waved at you yesterday as she and DZoH were driving through your town on our way home from a weekend with DSD1. Well, waved vaguely in your direction to be precise.
