The color of our skin

"Mommy, this is like your hand. It's peach!" "I'm peach colored?" "Yes" "I thought I was white." "No (matter of factly) you are peach color." (At this same age Carolina said we were beige, and pronounced it "baj")

Mel hears the "S" word

Meanwhile Mel just said "Mommy! That boy [in the cartoon] said the S word!" "Um. Do you mean Stupid?" "Yeah! He said it! He said it and he didn't even apologize!"

Carolina knows a bad word

she's seven and we just had this conversation:

C: "Mommy, I can spell the F word."
Me: "You can? How?"
C: "F-I-T. Or is it F-I-T-T? I forget which way is the bad way."
Me: Um. Fit isn't a bad word.
C: It's not?
Me: No
C: Ok, then I have no idea.

A few minutes later she came back and said "Ohhhh! I know. It's the "fuh" word. Ok."
