Watch your language around my child!

So Lucy, like all young children, has her own terms/pronunciations for things. Some of them, I get. Some of them, I don't.

This one, I didn't. It was clear, from context, that when she said, "momo-feagan," that she meant "more." But the origin of the phrase, I didn't know.

Then, it evolved into "mo-feagan."

And then, I realized she was saying, "more freakin.'" As in, "More freakin' cheese, please, Momma!"

Who taught my child that? Where would she hear such a thing?

Oh, wait.

It's possible...


But maybe...

Oh, I hope not.

She learned it from me.

It was a sad day when I realized that.
