B is for female dog? Yes, this is a funny story about kids and the words they hear.
I'm not really sure what we were doing on this particular day, but I am pretty sure we were going about are usual duties around the home.
The flow was stopped when One of my children asked my husband,
"Dad, What's a Bitch?"
Taken off guard because we don't use this language he responds, "Where did you hear that word?"
Child: " One of the kids outside called his sister a B-"
Husband: "Ok, Well that is the term for a female dog. And It's also used by some people in a hurtful way to name call, curse or belittle someone."
The child thinking he just expanded his vocabulary
Child: So next time I see uncle Andrew's dog Maggie, Can I say, "Hi little B-" "come here little B-"
Husband: (temporarily speechless and holding back laughter)
I can't remember if we laughed right there or later but it was a funny teachable moment. Never a dull day as parents of four. Hope this brought a little laughter to your day!
The lesson we attempted to teach and Remember is this:
From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so.James 3:10
