Oh boy...


Well, there's no better person to show you the things you need to improve upon than your child. I'll admit, on occasion (rarely for sure), when dealing with a rude sales associate or dealing with a nutzo driver, I spit out the word, 'jerk'. Well, yesterday I was telling Lane that I needed to be somewhere at a certain time and so he needed to go upstairs and keep an eye on Porter. I got the 'in a minute'. I walked upstairs waiting for the 60 seconds to pass and sat with Porter. Porter than said, 'Daddy jerk.' Uh...'Porter, that's not nice! We don't say that about Daddy.' He just got a bigger grin on his face and decided it was best to say it again. 'Daddy jerk.' I then repeated, 'Porter, don't say that.' He continued to smile at me and said, 'Fetch.' This is a word we have taken out of our vocabulary once we realized it had become Porter's favorite word and we've since been trying to get him to stop saying that. He knows it's not a word he's supposed to be saying; hence, why he continued to repeat it. He once again chanted, 'Fetch', and then I just started to laugh. These may not be the best disciplinary actions but I couldn't help it!

Poor Lane. He's the innocent bystander here! :)
