the mouths of (other people's) babes


I took a brief break from my organizational frenzy today to read some favorite blogs, including Bad Mother by the brilliant and funny Ayelet Waldman. I probably shouldn't have, though, because her Potty Mouth post made me spit coffee all over my nice clean desk. Apparently she and her husband had a bit of a quarrel this morning, which was followed by this conversation with her son:

Zeke, age seven says to me, "Daddy is not a dick, mommy. If Daddy is a dick, then you are a bush."

I stared at him and said, "What? What did you say? How do you even know that word?"

He replied, "What word? You know, Dick Cheney and George Bush."


No way, I don't believe it for a minute.

Thanks for the introduction to her blog a few months back. I've been reading it on a regular basis now and finally started getting her books from the library.

She's an intelligent, honest and very funny writer. (Not unlike several other blogs I read -- but may not comment on all that often)
