FYI -- and UPDATE BELOW

I just screamed FUCK at the top of my lungs in front of my kids because they are acting like complete FUCKING animals. And you know what? It felt FUCKING AWESOME to do this.

Does this make me a bad parent? And if so? I DON'T FUCKING CARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGHHHHHHH

Nope. Doesn't qualify as making you a bad parent. I'm pretty sure you haven't warped them with your outbust. You are safe. At least I hope so because I fit into that category more than I care to admit. :)

I'm afraid I've done that too. Though in my case, it was last week in the car and some jerkoff pulled out in front me.

My motto?

My kids are going to learn how to swear propery ;)

I snapped in the car one day and yelled so loud the lady behind me honked and glared until the light turned green.

try running a childcare center and you have 15 kids running around, not listening (including your own 2 children) to you because the awesome teacher has an infected canker sore and had to go to the doctor!

Oh, also, Little G says he misses his "Big cousin!"

Kelli said...

BTW, I donated blood the other day and I won a IPod nano, from the blood bank. Thanks again for getting me back into the practice. Hope you have a better day

You're not alone - and you're probably not a bad parent. Or, if you are, then I clearly am too. I said something to my 3-year-old daughter the other day that I still cannot admit out loud or in writing for fear of being judged/burning in hell (if, God forbid, there truly is such a place and that it is not located at my current address). Let's just said that what I said would have offended far more people than the F word...

If saying fuck in front of your kids makes you a bad mom, then I was driving that bus a few years back.

In return, my now 19-year-old daughter texted me the following this past Mother's Day:

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY MOMMY DAY U ARE My MOM And I am ur daughter and i would like 2say happy fuckin mothers daaaaaay! Wooooo wooooo yoooooou!

Oh, yeah, she ended that with a smiley face so it meant the message was actually heartfelt.

Ah, fuck, see what you get to look forward to?

Melissa said...

OMG, if I could never say FUCK in front of my daughter again I would never speak out loud again...

i probably should post this, yesterday driving home from the beach i was using my cell phone and listening to my home messages. i did not USE my head set (nother story). the girls were screaming for me and yelling and crying, i couldn't hear the messages, i finally turned around and screamed jesus fucking christ stop it. and as i was screaming at them i saw the cop car which was just putting on the lights to pull me over for not using a head set. NICE. i got off with a warning. he was probably scared i would go ballistic.

Manic Mom said...

OMG, you guys are making me feel SOOOOOO GOOD!! YAY!!! I am not alone!!!

Pixie--I am DYING to hear what you said! PLEASE tell us!

And Ruth Anne--I LOVE THAT MESSAGE YOUR DAUGHTER SENT!

Feener--so glad you only got a FUCKING WARNING!

Mabunny said...

How are your parents feeling from their respective illnesses/surgeries? Hope they are ok.

Imani said...

awww, fuck, nah! you're normal. ;-)

Jenn said...

Manic,
Sometimes you gotta say"What the Fuck"...name that movie!

Michelle said...

Do you really think that at that age your kids haven't heard -- or said -- that particular humdinger before? So what WAS their reaction?

Manic Mom said...

Anon--you are so sweet to remember about my dad's surgery, and of course, my mom's knee surgery! My dad looks GREAT! He showed us his scars as soon as we picked them up at the airport and MAN, they are BIG AND BAD AND RAGGEDY!!!! But he has gained weight back and is back on the golf course and looks totally normal to me, which I was nervous about. And mom is as beautiful as ever! Thanks so much for asking.

And Michelle--yeah, they've heard it before, but they for sure never FUCKING said it! I would KILL THEM! Oh wait, if I look in the archives, I think Ajers asked me about fuck once. It was a funny story, but I can't remember it!!

Manic Mom said...

And Jenn, what movie!??!!? I can't remember!

Manic Mom said...

GREAT, Folks, MY BLOG IS TEMPORARILY SPAM-BLOCKED-HAS ANYONE HEARD OF THIS BEFORE?

I WONDER IF IT'S BECAUSE I USED THE F-WORD SO MUCH IN TODAY'S POST?

THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED TO ME BEFORE. NOW BLOGGER HAS TO REVIEW MY BLOG TO MAKE SURE I'M LEGIT. AND I CAN'T POST FOR AT LEAST TWO DAYS.

CRAPOLA FRICKITY FRICK!

Toni said...

Can't a girl say FUCK every now and then with out being censored!! U Go Girl!

Kim Stagliano said...

Ever heard of "Echolalia?" It's part of autism. The wee little darlings repeat whatever they've just heard.... Once Gianna said, "Where's my fucky blanket!" when she was about 4. Oops, got to run, my ship is about to sail off and I have to refill my grog. ;)

(PS) Get it? Mouth like a drunken sailor?

(PPPPSSSS) When I did a find/replace on my MS for certain swears my computer almost blew up.

March to the Sea said...

manic..what the FUCK are you doing Fucking swearing?! Sheeshus...

Manic Mom said...

March--Shut the fuck up already.

BTW, are you not counting down until OCTOBER 24 or WHAT?!?!?!

HSM 3 in theaters! YAH BABY!!!!

Manic Mom said...

Oh, and Kelli--YAY FOR DONATING BLOOD AND FOR WINNING A NANO IPOD!

pixiemama said...

If Blogger has you blocked for 2 days for us overusing the big F-er, then you should be really glad I didn't repeat what I said. It would make the Blogger folks shake their heads and say "You can't f-ing say that to a 3 year old. What the f*ck!" And shut you down permanently. And then you would never speak to me again. Oh yeah, you and the rest of the world.

Bina said...

Ha Ha Ha! Dang, I wish I could have been there!!!! So how did the kids react? And HELL TO THE NO it doesn't make you a bad parent. It makes you completely fucking normal! LOL

Jenn said...

Manic,
The movie is Risky Business.

Amanda said...

I may have uttered "Tell some one who cares!" once or twice, possibly in a projectile bellow fashion, maybe a good thing we live in the back end of nowhere!!;)

Kirst said...

Fuck that, Blogger can't keep a great writer down!

Steph said...

wtg sista!!! I have often wanted to do that myself! I love my little munchkins with all my heart but I tell you some days they try my ever last nerve! Hey you would be interested in guest blogging one day the week of the 11th? If so email me! swhln72 at gmail dot come

pixiemama said...

Hey, Manic -
If you have a secret about how you got Blogger to unlock your site/unblock it, whatever, can you please go visit my friend at Full Soul Ahead? She's having the same problem http://michelleoneilwrites.blogspot.com/

Thanks!
