Geez Man!

Last summer we were in Bali for a month.  LagosDad, me, V, my parents, my sister, my brother and his wife.

We had the most fabulous time.  However, as expected, we did get on each other’s nerves – this was bound to happen – we’re not used to all living together.

When we needed to swear/vent/curse in front of our parents, we all just said, ‘Geez man!’

I don’t know who started it (maybe me?), but it did the trick.  V wasn’t speaking much at that time, but he was also saying, ‘Geez man!’ by the time we left!

So a couple of days ago I picked him up and put him on his changing table.  He’s become really heavy!

The following conversation then took place….

Me: Geez man!  You’re so heavy!

V (laughing): Geez man!  Fucking hell!

Me (shocked, but trying not to laugh): Vinay!

V (still laughing): Geez man!  Bloody hell!

Me (truly shocked by this time): Vinay!  Stop talking nonsense now.

V: Geez man!  Superhero!

Me: Superhero?  What does ‘superhero’ mean?

V: I don’t know.

We then went on to talk about Spiderman, Batman and Superman and everything else was forgotten.

Yes, I found it funny when he swore.  I think it was just the look on his face.  He was laughing and laughed even more when he saw the shock on my face.

But I also know that we’ve got to be really careful about what we say in front of him.  Even if we don’t think he’s listening!

  1. Oops! I’m laughing here, but it isn’t the sort of thing you want your kids blurting out, especially in public.
    I have often said the F word or bloody hell, plus any number of other expletives, that Lily must hear. So far she just says Gordon Bennett and goddamn ! Sometimes she asks what I have just shouted, but I make something up that sounds like what I have said. She’ll say much worse one day, I know it.

    • I thought it was pretty funny too. But no, I wouldn’t want him to say anything like that in public! We’re all watching our words very carefully now!
