I think I'm a decent person. I'm educated and always put a great emphasis on school throughout my life. But not just that, I would think I'm well-rounded. I was a Girl Scout (oh yeah....all the way to a Senior Scout). I've worked at least part time since I was about fifteen years old. I was involved in theater in high school. I've been a volunteer on and off since I was younger. I attend church. I have a successful career. I don't turn right on red when the sign tells me not to. I definitely have my flaws but I would consider myself a good role model for my kids.
However, I have a potty mouth. Like...a really bad potty mouth. I'm not even sure when or how it started! My parents don't swear all that much. I don't think any of my friends do all that much. It's gotten to the point where someone can curse and it blends into the sentence for me so that I don't even notice. Same goes for when it's coming out of my own mouth. Parents beware.
Cursing wouldn't be a problem except for the fact that my son is now starting to repeat words and sounds and I know he's starting to understand what we are saying. I don't want one of my son's first words to be *^#$*%& or ^$&%. [Although it would be kinda hilarious for the baby books...umm, I mean...horrible]
So I've thought up my New Year's resolution that I'm going to start effective immediately. No more Stephanie's potty mouth! I don't want to be that parent that gets a call from another parent because my kid taught her kid how to say (@$&Y*#@(#*. No...I'm taking a stand and will vow to try really really really hard.
That is all...
