Another exhausting, taxing parenting effort on my part:
Being more aware of what I'm saying in earshot of Gideon.
Recently he asked, "Mommy, what's a dick move?"
We were in a car, listening to a radio program (not of my choosing) and I verbalized my reaction to a commenter who suggested President Obama should refuse the Nobel Peace Prize.
Come on, that WOULD be a dick move.
But there must be some other way to phrase such a sentiment.
I know in my heart of hearts there must be another way.
Is there a charm school for profane parents?
Preferably one that offers online classes.
