WTF Did You Say: On Insects, Cursing and Peeing Your Pants

by Leila on April 9, 2012

I continually try to encourage my kids to overcome their fears in a healthy way. I don’t push them hard but I will cheer them on, praise them and help them through it. One of my personal worst fears is not being able to obtain happiness because of some kind of fear…

Except when it comes to feet and alligators. Nothing good comes of overcoming those fears.

Insects have always freaked my son out but fascinated him at the same time. He used to run screaming from the room as a toddler if he saw a dust bunny! If he saw a clump of fuzz he would panic thinking it was a bug. Now at 4 years old he can play with slugs but still freaks out over any flying bugs. He tries though. He really does.

My Son: Mommy, there is a fly behind the blinds! I’m going to get that fly in the window… I’m going to smash it!

Me: Okay, buddy! I’m so proud of you for even trying but I’ll help…

My Son: HOLY SHIT IT’S A BEE! AAAH!!! I’m sorry I just said shit but I just pee’d my pants!

And he did… all over the living room on the way to the bathroom.

    Yeah I know some where out there exists a rationale that adults are not supposed to laugh…. but really that is too funny. Mad props to the kid for trying ;)

      I’m still trying to learn that I’m not supposed to laugh ;) I try to think… well, if it wasn’t my kid I would totally be laughing too… so that makes it okay, right? ;)

  5. Sometimes you can’t help but laugh, really. A+ for effort on his part, good thing it wasn’t the other way around and he yelled holy piss..
