That dirty four letter word

Our family was enjoying a nice bacon & egg breakfast this morning when Carleigh decided to blurt out a dirty word. Carleigh's been in the habit of repeating everything she hears, but nobody at the table had said that word. It shocked me when Carleigh shouted, "FUCK!" Our windows were open. I just pray none of our neighbor's were walking by during Carleigh's F word yelling. She said it about four times and then stopped. Heath & I really weren't sure how to react to it. Of course we told Carleigh not to say that word, it's a bad word. There's just something about a two year old cursing that makes you laugh though. She has no idea what she's saying and since she's getting us to laugh, she kept yelling it. I told Heath we had to stop laughing and act like it was no big deal and she would stop. When and if she uses that word, or any other curse word again, we will have to use a time-out or some other discipline.

I'm sure someone reading this thinks Heath & I are bad parents, but let's face it, kids are going to say bad words. They don't know it's bad. They just heard it at some point in time and decide to repeat it. We are just very thankful we weren't in a store, restaurant or daycare! I'd be so upset if Carleigh used any curse word in front of her classmates. It was embarrassing enough having her shout that word in our own home. I do not want to ever hear her do it in public.

The cold from Hell

On Friday evening, I started feeling ill. It really didn't catch me by surprise since Heath & Carleigh were both sick. Now I have it and I missed almost the full day of work today. I made it a whole hour and forty five minutes into my shift before I decided to leave. It sucks. I hate missing work. I've been so out of it all day. My nose feels clogged, the cough makes my chest hurt and I have random headaches. My voice is barely there. The only medicine I have is DayQuil/NyQuil which has been working wonders.

I'm going to see a dermatologist tomorrow morning. My skin always has redness no matter what kind of cleanser I use, so I'm going to see what it is. I'm also annoyed with the mild acne I still get. I'm hoping the dermatologist has a great cleanser that will actually work. I don't care what price I have to pay.

Anyway, Happy Valentine's Day! Heath & Carleigh gave me some delicious Ghirardelli caramel chocolates. On my way home from work, I stopped into Walmart for tissues and a chocolate cake to share with Heath & Carleigh. It was a simple Valentine's Day for us. I'd rather not celebrate with a cold though. If I was feeling better, I would have made a homemade dessert rather than buying one.

The new blog

I have finally decided to start another blog. This will be used as my personal, mommy, parenting, vacationing, work, etc etc etc blog. I need another place to ramble on and on. This is a non-profit blog so you will not see paid or sponsored blog posts here. I'll be updating this blog as often as possible. I have a cold this weekend, so I am doing some behind the scenes work on my blog. Trying to update a blog with a nasty cough and a headache is pointless. I feel like I am talking about nothing.

Until next time... :)
