The City Cousins Visit The Country Cousin

My sister-in-law and her kids just left the Island after a week of visiting. We had a lot of fun and the babies were so good (even though we all ended up sick). My two year old nephew was such a rock star! He is in the midst of potty training and did a super job while up here.

I've learned that one has to be exceptionally careful of what one says in front of a two year old. I was helping him in the bathroom when he was doing #2 and I gasped, "Whoa! That is one giant man poo!!!"

Of course, my nephew had to run around the house yelling, "I just made a giant man poo!"
I also accidentally said the "s" word while I was cutting veggies with the knife and Kenny kept saying, "OH SHIRT!" Thank goodness he thought I said "shirt"! I am such a terrible adult!

Kenny and I baked cookies twice this week. We also went apple picking on our farm and then made apple sauce for the babies. Kenny saw the cattle. Yes, those bad cows that escape and jump fences all the time! Kenny also saw deer every day on our property. Kenny calls them "big horses" though. Today he saw a woodpecker. He also went fishing this morning with Grampy.

I think this week was really good for the kids. Little One got to play with her cousins and spend time with her auntie. Kenny just had a blast and was busy all the time. We even went for walks to my mother-in-law's farm. I was impressed that Kenny walked the whole way there.Now that the gang just left, the house seems so quiet and empty. I think we're suffering from withdrawal. I miss my sister-in-law, the twins and my two year old nephew already.

yes, they DO listen...and file those words away in their tiny little minds...later to be put to use when you least suspect it!

i've slipped a few times as well. and that was yesterday! tc heard me say "sh*t" and said,"ooh, that's a bad word". well, at least I didn't say FK, which I say ALOT!!! (but not in front of her)

all the kids look so cute together! i can't believe your nephew is 2 now!

Sounds like you had a fabulous time. I hate that feeling when people leave and the house feels all empty.

When Maya was about that age, I thought for a crappy second that I had locked the keys in the trunk. I said, "F*CK!*, and Maya said, "What!?" and I said, "DUCK! I saw a DUCK!" "Where?" "Oh, you missed it." HA!

HAHAHA! I know! My quick save? "Kenny! What colour is your shirt?"
"Yellow" "That's right! Yellow shirt!" LOL! I'm so lame!

It WAS pretty funny with him running around yelling "OH SHIRT!" though. I was mortified at first though when I thought he actually heard/understood what I said!! Gah!

It WAS a giant MAN POO! LOL!

Hahahaha! Thanks for sharing that one! I had a good chuckle. Amazing how quick we can be when caught in a situation like that!

In the German language one uses many animals for swearing, which makes it not too dangerous.
With regard to the 'shirt' word, I tried already during the pregnancy to change it into an 'upsy' wich seems to have worked, many times, however not always.
A wonderful week for you.
