“Fuck it,” my 4 year old mutters as the little people she is stacking fall like dominoes.

Horrified I ask, did you learn that at school?

No, she replies. From friends? The playground? TV? Daddy?

No, she says, from you.

I explain that that is a very bad thing to say and I need to stop as well.

Ok, Mommy, she says.

Can I just say fuck?
