Well, hubs records it because he's addicted. So at least we can watch something else at the start and then fast forward through the commercials.

She copies me to an extent. If I say 'uh-oh' when she drops something she says it back, and she says 'hi' and 'wow' when prompted.

I guess I'll have to watch myself when I'm driving because I don't want her to be saying things like "Learn to drive you f***ing f***er" and some of the other more colourful things I say
oh trust me she will copy you..as my OH found out when DD was only 4 yrs old..

OH took DD for a day out, (to give mum a few hours well deserved peace) so off they toddled in the car to the park..and came back a few hours later with DD all nicely tired out from running around like a loon.

The next day we went out in the car to the local shops when OH had to stop because the car in front couldn't decide whether they were turning left or right and of course OH was getting agitated..

DD calmly wound the window down, stuck her little head out and shouted...

"Move your shitty little car dickhead"

OH went bright red and I beat the crap of of him for teaching our daughter road rage..

(fortunately now that she's older she knows about bad words and that she's not allowed say them)

Oh great, so my sweet little girl is going to drop her bottle and instead of saying "uh oh" in the cute way she does now, she'll start saying "f***sticks" instead

Although, if she's going to copy me anyway, maybe I can get her talking in a Belfast accent to piss off her ma

That reminds me of something a woman who helps out at a local kindergarten was telling me...they had a boy in the class who could only speak Spanish. They were getting the kids to pour their own drinks from a jug and to stop in time by counting "One, two, three." However he couldn't count in English, at which point the cup overflowed and he went "OH, ****!"

When my now 12 yr old went to nursery school, they had a different approach on the kids when it came to swearing. Instead of the usual punishments, the teachers would say something like 'we don't say fu ck here' with a lovely soft voice and smile.

It seemed to work.

- was just really funny hearing these posh teachers swear like it was nothing.

Smile?

I interviewed for a promotion at my job. They asked me to explain my best qualities in three words. My boss - who knows me well enough - braced herself. And then I said, "well, if it had to be just three, I'd choose Killer Alien Vagina."

I got the promotion.

Then I handed my resignation in. Four weeks to go now until the nightmare is over.
