It Really is Dumb!

Rawley has been saying the word "dumb" lately. I have been telling him to not say that word and here is what he tells me every time!

Me: Rawley, don't say the word "dumb".
R: But if I don't say "dumb", then I don't have a word for "dumb" and then how can I say that the cup is "dumb"?

How do you argue with that?

Okay that cracks me up! I guess he has a point!

Why does the cup have to be dumb? Why can't we say what color it is or what we'd like to put in it? Isn't it great when they focus on a word or phrase that is inappropriate. Greyson likes to say "I don't care" about everything right now. I tell him to take bath and he says "I don't care". I tell him it's time to eat and he says "i don't care" ugh, really tries my patience!! And I can't argue with him because he genuinely could care less.

Rawley does have a point there...:0) Three is such a fun age for new words...Ethan is exploring the word "Poo-Poo!" HA!

How funny! Sounds like he's got the world all figured out. What can you do?

We actually do have a substitute word for "dumb" and "stupid." It's the word "silly." It pretty much means the same thing, but it sounds a lot better to say, "You're so silly!"
