Mr. Potty Mouth has returned.
Yesterday at school Owen built something in my classroom and got very excited and he yelled “Holy cr@p! Look at my [whatever he had made]!”
I didn’t hear him but my lead teacher said “what did he say?” I asked him to repeat and he did…
I asked where he had heard those words…”I didn’t hear them anywhere…” he said, looking away.
When we got home I pumped him for some additional information. He said he didn’t know they were bad words and he thought that he heard it in a song they sang in class…
When I told his teacher about it this morning she laughed. I walked across the hall to the school office, on my way back, I heard Owen playing with the car race track and in his excitement I heard again “Holy cr@p, did you see that?!?!?”
We all heard it that time.
He has been instructed that a better choice of words might be “Holy moley…”, not “Holy cr@p a moley”, just “Holy moley…”
