Hi Karen, my name is Linda and I am a Potty Mouth Mama. WTF.


Needless to say, I love this. And yes, I sound exactly like our father did thirty-five years ago. It is the Brooklyn in me. And my kids hear it, and know the words are "bad" and tell me so every time. I'm believe that while there is a fine line to walk, sometimes when you make things taboo, they become more powerful. Once in a while one of my kids will say a curse word, or even ask to say a curse word. I respond that they aren't pretty words, and while it's not great for me to speak them either, they sound particularly disturbing out of a child's mouth. So at least for now, it is not on their agenda to use them freely. At least for now...

See, I'm from NJ. I thought it was just my dialect . . .
