She Said the 'Eff' Word...

I have a terrible, terrible confession to make.

My daughter is not yet two-and-a-half.

This afternoon, as I was getting her up from her sleep I accidently knocked over a picture frame mounted on the stand beside her bed.

My daughter said:

"Fucking hell!"

"What did you just say?" I asked her. Maybe I had misheard. Maybe it was "trucking bell". Or something.

"Fucking hell!", she repeated.


Just great.

I don't know where this has come from. I never. ever. say the 'eff' word.

Except when I drop things. Or fall over something. Or hurt myself. Or am exasperated.

Rarely ever.


Folks, I am a terrible terrible mother! If motherhood were a car, I'd get double demerits and lose my license for this heinous crime!

My angel is a potty mouth. And it's my fault! How am I going to redeem myself and stop this evil word from ever tumbling from her strawberry-scented lips again?!?

the 'eff' word has fallen from this angel's mouth.... :(


  1. Lucky she's a cute little potty mouth! hahahaha

  2. Oh dear, I don't know what I'd do. She's adorable!

  3. Sorry Nicole, I have to giggle. And look on the bright side... at least her vocabulary is expanding and it wasn't the 'C' word :) x

  4. Oops! Man, I need a swear jar! Oh, those little sponges!

  5. I was looking after my cousin's child and every time she dropped something, she too said the "F" word. She was also 2 at the time. I have to confess that I am also guilty of having a potty mouth on occasion.

  6. Well she's the most angelic looking potty mouthed kid I ever saw!!! Don't feel too badly... I'm sure it happens to the best of us!

  7. Your little potty mouth is just gorgeous! For some strange reason, I NEVER swear! According to my kids..stupid, shut-up and hate are all swear words. :)

  8. I couldn't help but smile at the thought of angelic little Fern coming out with those words :) Grace has been soaking up things like a little sponge lately too and my husband has been warning me to watch what comes out of my mouth :) Don't feel bad on yourself luv x

  9. Oh hilarious! Out of the mouth of babes...

  10. Well it's official, she's definately a Creamer/Cleary now!!!

  11. I, on occasion, swear like a trooper.....and am getting worried that my little one will start copying mummy too! I really must work on that!

  12. Ahh, you have me in fits. Happens to the best of us, trust me! Don't those words seem to have so much more impact when they come from kids? I keep trying to clean up my potty mouth... to no avail.

  13. Ha ha! Reminds me of the time my eldest was about 3 and I was changing his little brother's nappy, it was a real stinker and when he walked past, he looked at the mess and said "JAYSUS"!!! Nobody to blame but me for that one!
