Rhymes with truck

Fly and I were playing with a couple of his birthday trucks when I started rhyming.

"Truck," I said, "buck, duck, luck, muck, puck..."

And Fly said -- I kid you not --

"Suck!"

It starts so young, sigh....

So funny. I try not to curse around my daughter, much, but sometimes the words just come out. I am absolutely confident that she'll drop the f-bomb someday when we're at the grocery store or somewhere where the maximum number of people will hear her.

Kids learn early :) Thanks for sharing.

It reminded me of something that happened when I was in college. While student teaching in a first grade classroom I had an observation. I was quite nervous about it. Why? The lesson was about the short u sound. One of the mini-lessons was about rhyming words with duck. I knew one of the kids would say suck - so I had a response all ready about sucking on a lollipop and "good work" then I guided them to other words hoping that with my mentor watching nobody would do the forbidden word. I was lucky, the child that I thought would instead got stuck repeating the work "butt" over and over and over again.

In the grand scheme of things, suck isn't so bad! Babies suck bottles, you suck suckers ... better than the f word! (Which my child did say around 1 after hearing mommy say it :X)

It could always be worse - at least no one else was around. Usually my kids came up with that stuff around others.

I'll bet you can imagine what I thought he would say!

Isabella has started saying, "Oh, crap." I wonder where she got that little gem?

I've got a friend with a son who got his tr's and f's mixed up all the time (I think in part due to the reaction it got) - very sad!
