We knew the time would come. Eldest is just starting to enlighten us with stories and such that he's learned on the school bus. Oh great.
Tonight at dinner, he blurted out with, "Matthew on the bus says that if you stick up your middle finger, it means a baaaaaaad word."
Hubby responded, very seriously, "YES, it does. Don't ever let me see you doing that, okay. It's really not nice. And it does mean something bad. Something very bad."
All was quiet for a moment. And then Eldest offered, "I know what bad word it means."
I quietly choked on my spaghetti. Hubby took a deep breath and asked, "You do? What bad word is it?" as we both mentally braced ourselves for the F-bomb to come spilling forth out of our innocent 6 year old's mouth.
Eldest responded, "It means jerk."
Yep, yep it does, buddy.
