"What's a 'bad word'?"

This is a post that I can't help but put on both my blogs. I probably should be more horrified than anything about it, but what the hell.

We were eating dinner and I used the word "dumb". Ella told me that it was a bad word. So we get into the bad word conversation about saying a word vs calling someone a name, etc.

This was the well needed END of the conversation:

Me: "Ella, what is a bad word?" (looking for her child-like definition)
Ella: "Fuck."
Me: "Well, that certainly is an example of a bad word, but not what I was going for"

oh. my. god.

I know I'm waaaaaaaaaaay late in commenting here, but I had to tell you... Every chance I get, I reread this post. Always good for a giggle!

I think Ms Ella is definitely her Mommy's daughter, no?
