Oh yes, we have had that as well. Other than moderating language for future, it might be worth saying that it's naughty to say certain words at nursery/school. But only if you think he could get his head round that concept.....
Whenever DS2 picks up a word he shouldn't use (for example when he learned FFS from DH ) and uses it in context, such as when he's cross about something, we give him a NEW word to use. His particular favourite right now is "horsefeathers"
So when he's cross about something he'll stomp his foot and growl "oh, HORSEFEATHERS!!" It's quite amusing, although obviously we can't let him know that.
To be honst Infest, I think you're getting off quite lightly at the moment with 'bloody'!
I clearly remember youngest shouting out the F word in Asda and me throwing my hands up in the air and shouting back "Hoorah, he is finally talking". However hubby desperately tried to nip it in the bud whereas I tended to ignore it (it was manily for reaction) and one day age4d about 4 youngest was saying the F word over n over. Hubbyy said if you keep saying it I'll put soap in your mouth, so of course he said it again so hubby got a tiniest little bit of soap on his finger and put it on his tongue. Son promptly threw up copiously (he also had relux) and shouted out "For F**ks sake I been F**king sick now" at which point I nearly peed my pants laughing and said 'well, that went well' to hubby!
Our ds has delayed speech but managed to pick up on "shit" and even used it in the correct context when he bumped his head. It was around the time he was due to start nursery but we ignored it & I think (hope) he's forgotten all about it.
He does still have a little spiel he's picked up on from being in the car with FIL which runs along the lines of "Stupid. Ridiculous. Indicate!"
Here's another example Infest to make you laugh; when he was at nursery he also kept shouiting out the F word so the staff divised this red card system when if he swore badlty they showed him the red card (like a football ref) and they said it worked really well. Great says me, I'll try it at home. First time he said it I duly showed him the red card and he told me to F**k off.
DS is a "what the eck is that" "what the eck do I do now" or "wow! where the eck did that come from"
At xmas the MIL was invited for xmas dinner........DH tucked in and cleared his plate. MIL said "blimey "DH" you tucked that away quick" .........DS piped up "blimey Dad you finished already!"........we all stopped in our tracks and then burst out laughing. MIL said I dont think you should say that DS. He said "say what?" is it a swear word?" She said yes and he said well thats what you said nanny Nanny was very ing
On the road rage front with me driving DS has picked up "cant you drive you muppet!" and "where did you get your licence from!?" to which DS proudly yells "FROM A CORNFLAKES PACKET" [GRIN]
Love it Coffee. My MIL is like this; elder son often shouts out b*llocks (part of his tourettes) and school taught him to say Bullits instead, so now he shouts out Bullitts at the top of his voice and the MIL told him off for swearing, so I said what he'd said and she said that's still swearing She's just bonkers really
I was going around saying "oh ..........sausages!" desperately trying to check myself from using the strong stuff but I gave up because I kept getting "yes please" or "noooo not again!" from DS now I go outside and stomp instead!
