Last night, it happened. F day. My (almost) 6 year old son Isaac dropped his first four letter word.
Dunno where he picked it up from (my guess is Childcare or school). We were discussing teeth, and I pointed out his new big tooth, and he said:
I didn’t believe I’d heard right, so I said "What?"
For a second I couldn’t comprehend that he would be saying such a thing. But there’s nothing else it could’ve been.
It didn’t make any sense in that context, and I’m guessing he had no idea (even figuratively) what it meant. I told him that wasn’t a nice thing to say, and he said "Okay Dad", and I left it there.
Sigh. They grow up so fast.
Postscript: Thankfully, it may have been "It’s fat" with a funny voice.
