Fraidy Cat

The other day Mr. Ashley was playing with the boys in the driveway when Big Kid turned to him and said, "little kid is such a pussy."

Mr. Ashley almost fell over dead from shock.

"Big Kid!"

"What?" He seemed genuinely confused.

Mr. Ashley lowered his voice to a whisper. "Do you know that word is slang for a woman's private area?"

Big Kid immediately paled and began stuttering. "No! Oh, I--I, no! No! I thought it meant 'fraidy cat!"

"Let's just pretend it never happened, okay?" My husband offered.

They both came in looking sheepish and aghast. Mr. Ashley pulled me into the bathroom to relay the story back to me and I had to stay in there for a few extra minutes so that no one would witness my hysterical laughter.

Thankfully, little kid missed the whole exchange.

I can just imagine his eyes SUPER big and the color draining from his sweet, innocent face, lol.

I had a sweet little boy that I used to nanny for use a HIGHLY offensive term to insult his sister because he thought it meant "stupid". It was extremely difficult to explain to him why he couldn't say it without teaching him something more offensive!

or a soft little kitten haha

Someone called my husband a pussy at a softball game they were playing. I was surprised he didn't go rip the guy's head off. I wanted to for him.
