Potty mouth

Lately Aidan has adopted a funny new way to express his anger. Here is the scene:

Aidan is playing with his train table and Reese comes over to stand next to him. She starts playing and her position prevents him from moving around the table in the direction he was going. He gets upset and starts pointing and screaming, "Dump truck!" Reese comes to me to report, "Mommy, Aidan is calling me dump truck again!"

He has a pretty dirty mouth! Haha!

Really, we are going to work on our potty mouths in this house. Randy and I both swear without swearing by using words like fricking instead of f******. I think that we will both be using "dump truck" when we get angry. Not only will this reduce the amount of swearing in our house, but the story behind it gets us laughing and will help to diffuse our anger in stressful situations.
