Top of My List of Swear Words Back in My Teacher Life: BORING

While I was making dinner for myself and the kids tonight, O. commented that he thought cooking was really boring.

"Oh really? Not the word I would choose," I said (I'm testing out a Neutral Response tactic to words I don't want him to say lately. Overreacting and Forbidding trials showed inconclusive results. I'll let you know how the data shakes out.)

"Yeah, boring. Because you just have to go back and forth, back and forth all around the kitchen for a really long time. And then you get our food made, and then you have to go back and forth, back and forth to make your own plate," he replied.

I'm pretty sure he just summed up my whole life.

"I'm pretty sure he just summed up my whole life."

And mine too.

Bub just started using the word "boring" the last few months. I find it both amusing and discouraging.

Eh, I dislike hearing people use that word.
