While visiting with an employee of my husband’s today, my son looked at her and said something I’ve never heard him say before…”Poopee-Head”.
I said, “Hey! Do NOT say that again. We don’t say that because it’s not nice. Do you understand? Do NOT say that again”.
Because, in his mind that means he has permission to proceed, he looked at me and said, “Poo…”
I glared at him and waited for the rest, but it didn’t come. My husband’s employee and I had continued our conversation, when my son got up and came over to my chair.
And, I truly believe he thought he wouldn’t get in trouble…like he had created a completely different word…when he looked at me, finished what he started, and said, “…pee-Head”.
