misunderstood

After the dentist appointment on Monday we went to Joann's (yes, I torture my kids with this store frequently). As we were standing in line to get fabric cut Stephanie said, "Mommy, I really need to sit." My head snapped around to look at her more squarely because I was just certain she had just busted out with, "Mommy, I really need to shit" right there were everyone could hear her. And since when is this child allowed to say that word? After a 30 second stare down and processing time I realized that she was having difficulty with her new guard and had not uttered profanity at all. I busted up laughing. I laughed so hard that they demanded to know what I was laughing about. I had to whisper into both kids' ears. Then we were all a hysterical riot right there in the fabric cutting line.

FYI, she probably did say the other word. If I had everything going on in my mouth like that poor kid I'd be saying worse words than that! Poor little girl. Let her put her Alice costume on and get treated like a princess.

P.S. to my earlier comment. What are her food restrictions now? Sticky caramels, gum, etc. were on the last torture list.
