Today I am starting a new category called “The Texts You Receive When You’re a Parent”. The past couple of weeks I’ve been receiving some pretty entertaining ones from the daycare.
It’s funny how things change. Just a few years ago, the majority of texts I received would say things like “Want to go out for drinks after work?” and “Want to go shopping on Saturday?”. Now the only messages I receive deal with pooping and gas, behavior problems, and more pooping. Ahhh, the joys of parenting.
I was at work last Thursday when I received this text from my children’s daycare provider:
Although I was mortified at my daughter’s choice in names, I have to admit I was laughing hysterically when I read this. I knew she must have picked the word up from somewhere, so I decided to investigate by giving the husband a call.
It seems that he “may have” muttered the words “little bitch” under his breath when she was acting up the other day. Nice, huh. Doesn’t he know that she has supersonic ears? The girl can hear a pigeon fart through a sliding glass door.
Well, I guess she took it as a compliment because she thought it would make a nice name for her new fuzzy friend. The funny thing is none of the other girls knew it was a “bad” word either. One of them actually said,”That’s our doggie’s other name”. Who knew Bitch would become such a popular name for pets? I wonder if we’ll see it on the Top Pet Names list for 2012.
All I can say is thank God the lady that watches my kids has a good sense of humor.
