I made the mistake of teaching Cohen the "Banana Fana" song.
It was fun for a while. He would giggle when I sang it. Then he learned to sing it himself.
But then Sunday, he and Brad walked home from church singing about everything they saw. Cohen saw a truck. Now he keeps singing the "Banana Fana" song about the truck over and over. If you think about it, this means he is saying a very foul cuss word quite frequently.
We are choosing to ignore it completely. When we told him that stupid wasn't a nice word, he started saying it more.
"Mom, is stupid a bad word?"
"Yes, Cohen. Let's try not to say it."
"OK. I wasn't saying stupid, I was just asking if stupid is a bad word."
We dont want that to repeat itself with the naughty rhyme to truck so in the meantime, we act like it's normal for our 3 year old to have the mouth of a sailor.
