Time Out for Busia
"Hi, Mom, Hausfrau here. I thought I would call to let you know what your charming graddaughter said to me today."
"Aw, shit. I can't even imagine."
"Yeah well, do you remember how she likes to say her prayers before she eats?"
"Yes, it's really cute."
"It sure is. Well, a couple of minutes after I made her lunch, she said to me, 'Dammit, we forgot to say prayers!!!'"
(Laughing) "Aw, Christ! You're kidding me?! God!"
"I wish I was. She also said "Dammit" after she dropped her bag of Pla-Dough today."
(Laughing)"Aw, Shit and be Damned! Honey, you guys need to really stop saying those words around her. She is so impressionable!"
"But MOM, she has been swearing like a sailor since we visited you."
"Well shit, Hausfrau, you visited me 3 weeks ago. There's no way she can remember those words from the visit!"
"MOM, we were there less than a week ago! The day after we visited you, she spent most of the day in time out because she wouldn't stop swearing! And it's not as though she just says the words. She actually knows how to use them in the correct context."
"God Dammit, Hausfrau, I am sorry. I guess I am just not used to little ones around. Why didn't you say something when you were?"
"I DID!" You kept ignoring me like you didn't hear me."
"Huh, I must not have heard you. Well, for what it's worth, I NEVER say the "F" word."
"Well, SHIT Hausfrau--when did I say that?"
"I believe you said, "That God-damned Baby Girl is so Fucking Cute, I can't stand it."
"Oh my God. I am sorry! Well, just tell her that Busia just isn't right in the head and that I am a little cukoo so I sometimes say bad words."
