The ‘C’ word, don’t say it.


A few years ago I did a series of blogs about swearing and slang on myspace they are at a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, o, p, q, r, s, t, u, v, w, x, y, z and numbers if you would like to read any of them, my faves are C & N.

But the ‘C’ word that is not allowed in my house at the moment is the one that happens on 25th December. My kids started going on about the mid winter Christian spend festival way back in September and so to free myself of constant annoyance i banned the word completely.

I told them that each time i hear the word they would have 1 present less on the day – mean but needed i reckon. Then last weekend my 6 year old daughter, MDS, fashioned a wall scoring chart to keep track of offenders.

Don't say the C word!

Don't say the C word!

My son doesn’t quite understand and already has heaps of lines against his name, i’ve decided he should become a Hindu so he can celebrate Diwali and receive a few gifts this winter. Check out the pencil that MDS insists be close to the chart, she has decided that an eraser should not be nearby in case people cheat. bloody genius that girl is!

Yes it is a little cruel of me to ban a word that tingles with excitement for my kids but I’m just like that.
