Took Demon Baby to Florida to visit my parents. We went out for dinner with them and my best friend. Lovely meal. Wine. Appetizers. Breadsticks. Salad. Italian meal.
And then . . . in the middle of the meal, for no reason Demon declared . . . "DUMB FART!"
Not at any person in particular. But just to say it. Loudly.
And then he repeated it. Ten times.
My father, age 74, asked, "WHAT did he just say?"
Now, to be clear . . .
When I was a little girl, I could not say the following words; stupid, shut up, idiot, dumb, stupid, hell, damn.
Let's not EVEN get into the really bad ones.
As a mom, I have always insisted my kids ALSO not say any of those words. Until Demon Baby of course arrived seemingly like a bat out of hell with his OWN precious vocabulary.
So, I gasped.
Demon Baby repeated himself.
I watched my parents.
As they broke down into laughter the likes of which I haven't seen EITHER of them break into in ages. It went on. More laughing.
And for the rest of the vacation, that was both of their favorite expression.
And somehow . . .
I guess it's only right that grandparents find Demon's antics amusing.
Even if I want to pull my hair out.
