Watch Your Mouth

It seems the time has finally come where we have to be really careful about what we say in front of Calleigh. Since she doesn't have her dummy anymore (you can read about that here) she is repeating a lot of what we say. Sometimes she will copy almost full sentences and other times just pic up on random words and repeat them again and again. 

It's really going to take some getting used to as we both kind of have a bit of a potty mouth and just blurt things out without thinking. The other day I caught Calleigh with her hand shoved all the way down her nappy and proceeded to ask her to "take her hands out of her ass" to which she replied "ass hahahaha". Luckily she doesn't seem to have remembered it and still refers to her bottom as her "bum bum". 

It also happened a few days after whilst we were out on a walk. As we were walking we came up to a big pile of dog poo and Paul told Calleigh to watch out for the dog shit. She turned to us and and repeated perfectly the word "shit"- horror! Again I luckily managed to convince her that dog poop was a much more fun thing to say and she hasn't said the word since. 

But it has had to make us seriously start thinking before we speak, especially when talking directly to Calleigh! 

We also just brought Calleigh a little drum set, it was on sale and she loves instruments so we couldn't resist. She could probably make a band now with all her instruments!
