apple sauce

I should file under stuff that makes me question parenting skills before coming to my senses:

Lately Gigi has returned to adding a bad word into her random monologues and doing it just for effect.  She loves to see if we are really paying attention so she peppers it with butt, a*s (?!!), or *sigh* sh*t.

As far as I know, we always catch it.  Keeping a straight face is sometimes difficult, especially when she uses it correctly, but we always give a warning, that leads to more serious consequences if ignored.

She knows it's bad, and this knowledge is written all over her face when she's doing it.

Tonight when I was putting her to bed, she had jumped on the edge of the bed and I heard her say a*sy a*s a*s - her own little taunt she came up with (OMG, she totally made it up herself, I swear - the kid is a natural poet) - so she got a warning.

This made her laugh.

Then she saddled up next to me and said knock, knock

[ me, hesitant and dreading what she was going to say ] who's there?

[ her, with a half smile on her face ] orange

[ me, completely dreading what she was going to say next ] orange who?

[ her, taking a pause for effect]  orange you glad I didn't say aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa - aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaapplesauce?  Followed by a longer than necessary laugh.


This kid really should be in show business.  Or the mob.

A kid with a sense of humour like that? Priceless.
One of my daughters used to crack me up when I was trying to discipline her; we used to end up laughing like fools and she got away with sheer murder. What can you do?

She just made up that knock knock on the spot? Smart cookie. We are all about the "butt" here at my house.

Laurin @ Laurin and Kelly Talk: I taught her the "clean" version of orange knock knock joke but she has totally personalized it on her own. I prefer the butt jokes.
