An Email Exchange, or She's No Angel Either

Mom: I hope you guys have a good mechanic down there

Well we have that mechanic friend who did our car who is one of Noah’s squad mates’ cousin.

Well that should work out okay. Although sometimes policemen - wellll you know.

I know. They cuss too.

I think that's why you're getting a potty mouth. Well you and your husband better watch it with our darlin wee impressionable genius hovering around.

Me: I
know. Like the time I said sh*t at the age of two that time dad slammed on the brakes because my babysitter's kids said cusses.

Exactly! That wee angel comes out with something and all I can say is I don't think you're too old for mouth full of soap even if dad has to hold you down.

Oh please we don’t walk around swearing. Although I did call Noah a butt munch in front of him, but I told him afterward he shouldn’t say that.

Oh well then, that makes it okay, cuz he doesn't have a memory.

You know, if he starts being sarcastic, I’ll know who to blame.

I would rather have him sarcastic like his beautiful nana than a potty mouth like his mum.

We’ll you’re not the mum, so you don’t get to decide.

So the decision is going to be potty mouth or sarcasm. It will be fun to see how that turns out butt munch.

I hope you know I’m saving these emails as evidence that you’re a potty mouth too.

Good. BUTT MUNCH!!!!

Aaaaand scene!

You all forget that is was not the "S-word" that Erin said it was the "F-word". Poppy better not hear any of that nonsense from anyone when we get there.

When will the sitcom version of you and the parents be available on DvD?

Sorry, but the thought of Ethan repeating "butt munch" is REALLY funny. Ahem. I meaaaan.... As a not-so-distant-future parent, this would be BAD. Bad bad.......

hahaha! and i totally forgot about butt munch, was that a popular beavis and butthead saying?:)

Bug—We do have a great relationship, when my mom behaves. She slapped me once, when I was 13, for back-talking. But we've gotten past that.

Anonymous Dad—The eff word?!

Carrie—We'll be here all week!

Slamdunk—As soon as we can think of a title.

Tina—I like to tell myself that butt munch, butt head, butt breath...pretty much anything with "butt" attached to it, is somehow less offensive than a swear word. I'm sure there are a lot of parents and elementary school teachers who would disagree.

Fashion Herald—I believe it's a derivative of Beavis and Butthead saying. I wouldn't know, though, because I wasn't allowed to watch Beavis and Butthead. Lotta good that did, eh?

You see at our house, we are driven to being sarcastic potty mouths because our parents were from PLEASANTVILLE.

It's refreshing that not all parents blanch at f-word, as in, FART.
