Photostory Friday: I'm a terrible dad -- finally, definitive proof

I have met the enemy, and he is me.

Have you ever witnessed a catastrophic event, and known fully, undeniably, irreconcilably that you are to blame?


And worse, everyone else who witnesses said event also knows, beyond all doubt, that you are to blame? See, I have this problem -- since I was very young I have tended to -- when upset -- supplement my language with, shall we say, colorful metaphors.


The problem is, I have these kids, who have VERY selective hearing.



Here's a quick little video, that Emma made all by herself. We discovered it over the weekend.

I am a CORRUPTOR OF CHILDREN!

But, would you like to know my real character flaw -- the reason I should NEVER have been allowed to procreate?

After I stopped laughing, and decided to post it, I found that it was gone. It had been misplaced, and before I located it, I actually considered trying to get Emma to do it again!

WHO DOES THAT?

WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME?!

Maybe it isn't you but the movies you watch.

I love Jack Burton.

All children have selective hearing! I think I did when I was a kid ....

Aaron said...

When are you going to do something with the six demon bag? You have not posted over there in forever.

Kristen said...

Salty language is a weakness of mine too.

JennyMac said...

WOW...this is almost too funny to be true. LOL.

Cecily R said...

S-N-O-R-T.

DUUUUUUUUUDE. You're making me feel better about CWAP! being a regular part of Gracie AND Evie's vocabulary. At least I use the colorful phrases under my breath.

Oh, AND. My word verification for this comment? BABEL. Hmmmmmmmm.

LMAOOOOOOO!!!I am guilty of having a potty mouth and have had my daughter slip in conversation and we both fell out laughing.

But, your video is HILARIOUS!!!

Son of a BI*%$! I had my kids watching with me..S@#*! LMAO...That is classic! That made my night:)

scrappysue said...

that' is hysterical! i bet she just wanted to hear what it sounded like!!!

Maggie May said...

You are a terrible dad! Encouraging children like that! LOL!

Terri said...

Under normal circumstances, I would report you to CPS. But it is Emma, after all, old soul that she is. She can handle it. She probably knows more cuss words than I do.

Terri said...

BTW = love the photo perspective! Very cool.

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

Oh.My. Gosh. That was funny! :D

Sharon said...

That was HIIILARIOUS! I think much more than I speak, but it has slipped out for me too my friend and my kid totally called me on it! I felt like I was condemned to you know where by my own kid! :)

Kat said...

HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! LMAO!!!!
I'm sorry but that is just too funny.
My 6 year old said "Damn it" in church two weeks ago. That was not quite as funny. ;)

Robyn said...

lol, that is too funny. We often though Miss M's first word was going to be a colorful metaphor. I could see myself trying to get her to do it again, so I am the same kind of parent.

Izzy 'N Emmy said...

Chris, I can't watch it, it won't play. Be Back Later.

auntemy said...

That is CLASSIC! Save it forever! Play it on her first date! (She looks seriously angry at the end there.) I played it for my whole office, none of us have children, those who are planning on it decided we need a swear jar. LOL.

Steph said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! That is soooo funny! I'm glad I'm not the only one!

Susan said...

SO funny! I mean...NOT funny!
Now if only you could find out if she had butterflies in her stomach as she said it over and over, knowing it was wrong..OR..her adrenaline was pumping because she knew it was wrong. That would be very telling.

Lisa @ Boondock Ramblings said...

You are horrid.....

*snicker*

You jerk of a father!

imbeingheldhostage said...

Made my night-- seriously. You are not perfect-- such a shock ;-)

I can't stop giggling...the Hubby had to ask what was wrong with me.

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

OK, then can I blame you for my son saying, "Dammit!" every once in a while? If not, it must be my husband.

Your daughter sure can make a face! Cute!
