'F U' -- A wrestling move?

"F U!" I hear coming from my boys' room while I was cleaning this morning. You should have seen how quickly I flew down the hall and stood at their door.

The boys were on their bed with a few of their Power Ranger, Army guys and wrestling men.

Me: "What did you say?"

MCS: "F U. It's a wrestling move."

Me: "Uh, no it's not. It's a cuss word."

They sit there looking as confused as can be.

Me: "Where did you get that from???"

MSC: Always the one with the most to say, "Xavier's house on his wrestling game."

Okay, remember when I was so happy they were playing at their friends' house? Happy for my moment of peace? *sigh* Okay.

Me, being my very direct self, gave it to them straight. "F U is short for F*ck You and that's a cuss word, right?"

Both: "Yes, Ma'am."

Me: "Okay, so I don't want to hear it again."

Both: "Yes, Ma'am."

I left the room shaking my head. My, the things that they learn from their friends.

Yesterday, the words were faggot and gay. Yeah, really. But look for this story in a later post......

Oh my goodness. You sure have had a lot of teachable moments lately. Hopefully they will refrain from using that language now. Get them some new friends!

I can't believe my boys haven't used that one yet...on purpose of course:( I'm so sick of the faggot word that I could honestly puke, no matter what I do or say, it still slips out! I've talked to a lot of parents and well, it must be the word of the summer:(
