"Dear Mrs Strachan. I am sorry for using yukky words and for telling lies. From Isaac"
Last week I made Isaac - who is 5!!!- write this letter to his teacher. She had tapped me on the shoulder after school with some tales from Isaac's day. Apparently the 'f' word had escaped his mouth during story writing time. Hilariously she was impressed that he'd used it in context as he was cross with himself for making a mistake! His story goes that he wasn't saying f@*k but was saying 'facuum' and that Lauren (the dobber!) had misheard him because the words had the same sounds in them. When suggested that vacuum starts with a v not an f he ever so nicely pointed out his mild speech impediment which means he sometimes pronounced sounds different!
The lying was not about denying the use of the f word either. He'd also shared a story about our recent trip to Queensland where he got to go to Movie World and meet Buzz Lightyear. Which would be fine if we actually went to Movie World and met Buzz Lightyear... which we didn't. I was impressed he was able to conjure up so many details about the trip and should probably pen a thank you to the Queensland Tourist Board for placing such extensive advertising on the cartoon channel!
I don't need to look far to see where he's learnt such language as it's quite possible that it may have slipped out of my mouth from time to time - hard to believe from a lady such as myself I know!
Some days need a good 'fuck' dropped into them though, don't you agree!?
Just praps not around the small people anymore!
