Babies and other cuss words

 

 

(My mom is already freaking out.  It’s okay Mommio, I promise)

 

Lately, I’ve noticed a certain phrase keeps popping up in our home.

 

The soon-to-be-six-year-old uses it masterfully…

muttering it under his breath with a scowl

shouting it in wide-eyed dismay

barking it through a well-practiced pout

 

In what can only be described as a kindergartener cussword; I give you:

 

OH BABIES!

 

 

Try it out here…

when Mom busts you drawing on your face with a Sharpie:

OH BABIES!

Or when when you get hit in the “bumps” by a wayward baseball:

OH BABIES!

Or when Momma tells you “step away from the ladder son… step away”.

OH BABIES

When you discover that your *ahem* footchies are much louder when you sit on the wood display at Cabela’s… and the man in the next aisle HEARS you discover that…

OH BABIES!

When your Mom loses sight of you for 1.4 seconds in the store and then totally busts you hiding in a storage ottoman with May-May…

OH BABIES!

Try it for when you kick your ball up on Grandpa’s roof…

OH BABIES!

But it’s versatile enough for the victory dance when he gets it down…

OH BABIES!

And homeruns definitely qualify for an

OH BABIES!

(even if you do run right past home and run straight to momma because she’s cheering and clapping so hard that you have to hug her RIGHT THEN.  And even if your uniform does look like is says, “CRAPPERS”… when it really says “SCRAPPERS”.  Yeah… OH BABIES!)

 

 

And Mommy?  Had an OH BABIES moment when a bird in severe gastrointestinal distress found her car… 10 minutes after the car wash.

BWHAHAHAH I mean seriously of all the things Itty Bit COULD be saying THIS is adorable. Think about it if you are one of a group of siblings and you are NOT the youngest who did you blame all your misfortune on. That's right the baby.. Itty Bit has discovered ,well hey, why not blame babies for it all.

What a PERFECT kindergarten swear word!

I gave it a shot, but it just doesn't work for me. Sounds... wrong.

Maybe I can use "Oh, old f@rts"

Is the the kinder equivalent of the f-bomb?

NaomiG said...

Oh, Babies, that is HILARIOUS. I love it! And totally reminds me of one of my kids, who at a young age found out the meaning of the term "minced oath" and refuses to this day to use any of them, as a matter of principal.

So instead, she always says, Oh, MY LEMONS! and WHAT THE MAYONNAISE?!

Beth Zimmerman said...

That is precious! He is just the cutest kid!

Tiffany Bleger said...

Oh babies could definitely be a bad word in my home at this point in our lives.

Did I tell you what Jakob let fly in the dugout at one of his games? Loud enough that the entire stadium let out a collective gasp? I'll give you two guesses and a clue. It started with an "F". Yup. Mother of the Year right here.
