karma’s a beeeeetchhhhh!!

Kids are smart. I mean they can be dumb in an endearing sort of way when they start giggling at their own shadow. But basically, they’re little evil geniuses.

My cousin’s mother was visiting and we went to their home to meet her. After a while of casual sauntering, Ri decided that the floor was not at a level she was happy with and wanted to climb the sofa. As she tried to grab it and leap onto it, she got stuck half way. The next thing we heard was an exasperated, “Oh sheeeeet!!”. I cringed inwards. Did I hear right? Was this a milestone moment- my eighteen month old daughter’s first swear word? What other expletives had she picked up from my road rage reflexes when I momentarily forgot I had a toddler sitting in the backseat while I cursed away at morons that cut me off?

This is what I mean when I say they’re smart. She picked the right moment, the right context and even the right witness to destroy my image as a parent. My cousin was all giggles but I could feel the rays of judgment emanating from my aunt. Who could blame her, after all I would have done the same thing. I can’t count the number of times I’ve grumbled to the hubster about some parents being such terrible role models for their kids.

I really wish I could be better at minding my own business so karma doesn’t bite me in the ass.
