Taken From An Actual Argument

From downstairs THE WIFE and I hear.

Sadie: That's a BAD WORD!
Ben: No it isn't.
Sadie: YES IT IS!
Ben: It's a "Not Nice" word. That's different.
Sadie: No, It's a bad word. I'm telling.
Me: We can hear you. You don't need to tell us.

Sadie stomps up the stairs and confronts THE WIFE and I.

Sadie: Mom, Ben said a BAD word.
THE WIFE: What did he say?
Sadie: I can't say it. It's a BAD WORD.
THE WIFE: Well I have to know what the word is to do anything.
Sadie: But I can't say it. It's a BAD WORD!
Me: Well honey, just spell it. (Keep in mind Sadie is three.)
Sadie: Uhhhh. E-R-T. That's what it was.

Some days are worth getting out of bed for.

Hahaha! That made me laugh so hard! I remember the first time I heard the F-bomb from my daughter. I almost peed. She said "There's a bad word on my Green Day song that Maya can't listen to." And I asked "Which one??"... meaning which SONG. She said, "Um... F*@#..." It still makes me laugh.
