potty talk

Guess what?  As of lunch time today, the word "Butler County" is official a naughty word at our house.  Bet you're wondering how THAT happened!  (And what kind of crazy parents we are...)

Here's the (halfway) short version:  "Butt" is potty talk at our house.  We say "rear" or "bottom".  So one of our incredibly ingenious and creative children (whom shall remain un-named) decided he would sneak "butt" into other words.  Therefore, he'll shout out "Buttcha!" randomly.  Or "Butt-er".  And his newest version?  "BUTT-ler County."  Seriously, people.  I never thought we'd be banning such words.  But in an attempt to keep our house potty-talk free, it's the next step.

Now, I should interject that I have very wise parents who have come up with some creative ideas in the past to dealing with behavior, and knowing that this is an attempt on the child-who-shall-remain-nameless's part for attention, we're going to try a new technique.  If it's successful, I'll be SURE to update!  

There.  Now you have it.  As of today, we'll referring to the "county directly east of us" anytime we drive to El Dorado.  Or Berean.  This shall be interesting...

I laughed out loud at this story! But I have to hand it to the child who shall remain nameless, he is certainly intelligent and creative! While you want to squelch the potty talk, you have to admire his gumption and ingenuity! I'm also afraid it gets worse before it gets better. :)
