Zachary: Mom, our bus driver said, "sh....." today. You know, the s-h- word?? The bad one.
Me in my head: Holy Crap! What the heck???
Me out loud: You mean, sh.....
...and you know, I just about said it. The really bad one, just to make sure they heard him right, but thank God I stopped myself just in time.
Zachary: YES! He said shut up!
Neighbor girl: Uh huh, he did (with plenty of vigorous nodding of the head and wide eyes)
Zachary: But not to us (quickly reassuring me)
Thank you, Lord for holding my tongue.
I really didn't want to be the one to reach him that word.
