Take Away The "R"

And you get Flynn's first written swear word. A milestone of some sort for sure.

My daughter keeps notebooks stashed all over the house and in every one of her many tote bags. Those of you who know her in real life are aware that Flynn rarely leaves the house without a bag stuffed to the brim with various and sundry "needs" (a notebook and writing utensil included).

Anyhoo, she was writing in one of her notebooks yesterday and said as she handed this to me, "This is for you, Mommy." I thanked her and then read it. I don't think she knew what she had written. She can write the names of our immediate family and a couple other words without asking for spelling clarification, but I don't think she's ever heard the word "piss" let alone knows what it means.

Oh, but it is funny.

That is absolutely a milestone! Everyone remembers when their kids say their first swear word (and they secretly get excited if it's used in the right context), but who has proof of their child's first written curse?

Love it.
