Bad Language

Macey, who is now three, has developed a new three-year old vocabulary, which includes the very naughty word "stupid."

A few minutes ago, I overheard her in the bathtub loudly insisting, "Kids are stupid!"

"Oh no! That's not very nice," I told her. "Why would you say that?"

"Because Adam is stupid."

"Oh, Macey, I want you to say sorry."

"Sorry." (Pause.) "But he says stupid words."

Our 3 year old has already experimented in the naughty word department. While reading a book about a little girl who was having trouble at school she politely asked, "Mama, is she going to say 'dammit'?"
