If you haven't noticed Ava likes the expletive. "Crap!" "Oh sh*t" "For the love!" "Holy smokes!" "Oh my goodness!" She normally goes for "oh my goodness" but recently she has has been experimenting with OMG or "oh my gosh". Justin corrects her all the time and tells her to say "oh my goodness." We aren't sure where she gets the OMG because we don't say it all in our house. (I know you are probably like yeah right, but it is true. Not something that is in our regular vocabulary, unlike crap or sh*t.
Some people think it is really funny to teach little kids to swear. We haven't encountered that issue for the most part. There are few people who still swear freely in front of Ava, but most get the concept that she repeats everything. I have recently realized how many people we see regularly say OMG repeatedly. Regardless of the whole 10 commandments issue, I don't like to hear any little kid say it. It just sounds weird to me. Like little girls in full make up and big hair. It is obviously impossible to control the environment. How do you handle the constant OMG's? I think people can handle hey, watch the language when it is a "normal swear" word, but what do you say about OMG?
