So I’m pretty sure I’ve crossed a line with my toddler. She’s officially developed a potty mouth, and it’s all my fault. I can just see it now. I’ll be accepting a parenting award somewhere someday and then I’ll be reminded of this moment…. maybe not. Today she told me that she wants “to run Best Damn Race.” I tried to keep a straight face and not validate her cursing with a response, but it was really hard not to do.
I immediately sent a message to the race director to share the news that his race is responsible for corrupting my 2 year old. He, along with a few others, thought it was pretty funny. Personally, I don’t know how to handle this situation. She knows that I’m affiliated with that race. The logo is all over my house, and she sees it on the computer. The big mistake was subscribing to their Youtube page where she discovered and was able to view the promotional videos and commercials. At first I was worried about the Ke$ha…… now, not so much.
Initially, we thought it was cute. She wanted to watch the “race.” She’s been to enough of my races to understand what’s going on in the video. She’s cheered on the sidelines at races and watched as I sprinted through plenty of finish lines. She gets it.
She watches the videos and says stuff like “They’re running….. look Mom! They’re running!” As a runner, I thought it was cute, and I was proud that she had taken an interest in something that I love so much. I even posted to my Instagram for others to observe.
Then, the other day, she found one of the temporary tattoos with the Best Damn Race logo in my bag. It was left in there after the latest expo that I worked. She wanted to put it on, so we let her. We were at the water park in our swimsuits so we didn’t think anything of it.
Then this morning, while playing around on the iPad, she came across the youtube channel again and watched the promo video for the umpteenth time. That’s when she turned to me and said it.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think she’d say the name of the actual race. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. She is her mother’s daughter.
Do you remember how old you were when you first cursed?
