i hesitate to write this post because it involves swearing. my ears have always been hypersensitive to swearing and i always cringe when i hear any form of swearing, but this time, it just made me laugh so hard i was crying. so, here's the story...
we have a tradition in our family that we have breakfast for dinner every fast sunday. we also have a tradition in our family (passed down from my side of the family, unfortunately for mitch) that i get the day off from cooking (have i told you how much i love sundays!!), so mitch does dinner every sunday.
being that it is fast sunday, we had breakfast for dinner. the girls ultimate FAVORITE breakfast is sticky buns (aka pull-apart rolls, monkey bread, etc.), so that is what mitch made, along with quiche and orange-strawberry julius.
anyway, i was feeding kawena some sticky buns, which she was thoroughly enjoying. there was a lull in the dinner conversation and clear as day kawena says, "daaaamn!" all drawn out like that. it was the most adult sounding word (meaning how clear it was spoken) we've ever heard her say. my eyes got all big and i looked at mitch, who was already looking at me. and we just started laughing.
mitch says, "mahina, i guess you're either not feeding her fast enough and she's saying 'da.. speed it up', or she loves it so much that she's saying, 'da.. this is goood stuff!'" which sent us into fits of laughter. the girls, of course, are completely perplexed by this outburst of laughter coming from their parents.
i, then, point out, "that is the clearest word i've ever heard her say!" to which mitch replies, "yea. let's see her first words were, 'dada', then 'mama', then 'daaamn'!"
by that point, i was crying i was laughing so hard!
