"Mommy, how do you spell B!#$%??
Conversation with Colin Bear earlier...
Colin "Hey Mommy...How do you spell B!@#$?"
Me "I'm sorry...what did you say Bear??"
Colin "How do you spell B!@#$??"
Me "That is not a very nice word Colin Bear?? Where did you hear that word??"
(Sadly, knowing full well that I am sure I have said it at some point in front of him)
Colin "You know, B!@#$. Like the thing you sit on outside..."
Me "Ohhhh, you mean bench. Like a park bench. Got it. That is spelled B-E-N-C-H."
Colin "OK Mommy..."
Me "You have to be careful bud. There is another word that sounds a lot like bench, but it isn't very nice. Mommy thought you were saying that one."
Colin "Nope, just bench..."
(audible sigh of relief...)
