Keepin' It Clean

Oftentimes in our house, Natalie assumes the role of older sibling.  So, when I glimpse moments of Noah acting like the true big brother he is, I get excited.

Yesterday, I walked in on this conversation between Noah and Natalie:

Noah: "I'll teach you all the bad words,"
Natalie: "What are they?"
Noah: "There's hate and stupid," he says as he ticks them off on his fingers...Mom, what other bad words are there?"
Natalie: "You're not cool?"
I told the kids I needed to get the laundry from the basement.  I knew if enough time lapsed that they'd be onto something else and I'd be free from answering their questions.  

Anyone who knows me, knows I do a LOT of laundry...not because I like it particularly, but because the walk to the basement (my swearing haven) gives me a few extra minutes to calm my Mommy self down when the kids are testing my patience.  Needless to say, this has resulted in lots of clean clothes and mouths!
