The S Word...and others...

It's the Primaries here today, and The Bean's school was closed...again. (They haven't had a full week yet, and they went back on 8/30!) I dropped Ava off first and was on our way to Grandma's house when Grace said something about "the S word". 

So I casually asked what the S word was, bracing myself for the answer...which apparently in her 1st grade world is Shut-up. I suppose she thinks it's one word...I breathe a sigh of relief that the real S word didn't come flying out of her mouth when she then announces she also knows about the F word.  Oh boy, here it comes, I thought. I could feel a pit in my stomach.

So again, in my innocence, I asked her what the F word was........

drum roll.....She said "it means fat." Some kids were talking about the S word and the F word in the back of the bus.

Fantastic. That's my F word for it. Let's hope that none of the words that start with A, S, F, etc come out anytime soon.
