I know you are probably thinking....what in the world is this girl talking about?! Well, as most of you know, I sometimes say bad words. I try to clean it up most of the time, but I'm not always as successful as I'd like to be. But, I am trying and I'm especially making sure I don't curse around my kids. And I'm even trying to completely move curse words out of my vocabulary.
I assure you, the would be nothing pretty about having a child repeat something colorful that you say when angry or upset. So, I don't want that to happen. Hence, my trying to remove those words completely from my everyday talk.
So, my new "word" is pickles. I've been saying it. It sounds a little silly, but it works. Pickles. Pickles. Pickles.
Well, guess who else thinks it's silly sounding...Marinne. So, if I say, "Oh, Pickles!" There she is saying PICKLES, right on my heels!
Thank goodness I didn't say *&^@*@*(*# !!!!!!!!!!!
