"Shit" is now "shoot" in our household

So it's totally crazy that my kid can understand me. I mean, he can listen and process and understand the words that come out of my mouth. "Noah, can you put that bowl on your head?" And there goes the bowl on top of his head. "Noah, can you find the ball?" Oh, look! There it is as he points to it. "Noah, can you bring the ball to Mommy?" Throws the ball to me. "Noah, can you give the dog her bone?" Crawls over to the dog and hands her the bone. "Noah, can you blow Mommy a kiss?" Hand to mouth and MWAH! "Noah, what does a cow say?" "MOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" He's been able to do this for a while but it was only today that I realized just how much he understands. Which means today is the day that the Swear Jar goes into full effect.

Public Notice to my Husband: All bad, nasty swear words cause $1.00 (of YOUR pocket money) to be put in the Swear Jar. If you don't comply with this rule, consider all future meals to consist of cereal and/or instant oatmeal.

HA! Love the swear jar rule... we're doing pretty well ourselves, but find it's more difficult to keep visitors from swearing. I mean really, I never noticed how often those words pop up!

I LOVE that he's responding so readily. When Maddie replies to my inquiries about animal sounds it just KILLS me everytime.

Clearly, we both have genius children! :)
