We were having a nice uneventful drive home from church today, when I decided to indulge my current craving for Sonic cherry limeades. As I turned in to the drive-thru, Rylan exclaimed, "What the hell are we doing here?"
I took a few moments to order and pay for my drink and gathered my thoughts to respond.
I asked him where he had heard that phrase and then explained that is not something we say in our family.
"Okay, can I say, 'what the heck?'
I informed him that was not appropriate either and gave him some alternatives words to use when he felt the need to be that expressive.
"What about 'holy mother of god'?'
Did I mention we were on the way home from CHURCH?
