Re: "Code words" you use around your LO

We get away with spelling most things, the only code word I can think of, is when I ask my DH to buy some "letter after Ls" at the grocery store. (M&Ms).

Dh asks if I can "give him a hand with something" when he wants lovin'. But I wonder how long before the 10yo figures that out.

We spell, too. Well, truth be told - I spell, then SO takes 5 minutes trying to figure it out, "Huh? What's P-A-R-K? Is that Park? Ohhhh...riiiight!" Or when he tries to spell but goes, "I'm thinking of taking the boys to the P-R-A-K, wanna join us?" Oh dear...and we're planning on HSing, what am I getting myself into? lol

My DH is getting his MBA at night, but we can't say "school". We have to call it "Work" because DD will freak out and think he's going to her preschool, and want to go, too!

Can't say "I'm going to the store" anymore, unless she's invited, because she knows that phrase and will tantrum all over the place if we don't take her... so we say "be right back" for anything and everything.

Good gravy. There's like ten more examples that just popped into my head. This is the problem with having a wicked-smart toddler!! She is definitely paying attention, and definitely knows what is going on!

She's just now to the point of repeating things I say, so there has been a rapid decrease in my foul language the last few weeks!! I'd hate to hear my little parrot say Oh crap! :rflmbo:
Oh they pay attention all right. DD also says "Oh my goodness" and "Not again" and "Good Lord". Kinda cute. At least they're not bad words/phrases.

DS isn't catching on to stuff like that yet so none for us.

We speak in another language. We're bi-lingual and DS is just starting to learn some words, but he hasn't caught onto certain words, especially if I speak in full sentences quickly.
