I told her that word isn't a word I use but I would be sure to watch what I said in case I was using it & not noticing???
A few weeks later, she apologized to me and said her son's favorite cartoon was Toy Story, and Woody says that word to Buzzon several occasions in #1. She hadn't noticed it before. The Toy Story franchise is a very angry one verbally. I have watched it on occasion and it is just so angry in tone & wordage.
FYI, incase you didn't catch it. I think kids pickup on alot of things we miss. Like the word "jerk".
I enjoy Toy Story for myself, but I really don't feel that it's all that appropriate for little kids. I was kinda shocked when I saw the newest on in theatres with DH. There was some seriously questionable stuff in there! And though I haven't seen the first one in a long time I just know that my DS would be terrified of Sid and all his mutant toys. Yipes!
