A Nicer version of “Darn It".

So Aidan says “darn it”. Well, at least it sounds like “darn it” and I pray it is not “damn it”. It is still hard to tell. So gently I remind him not to say it just is case it is “damn it”.

Background: Aidan carries around match box cars almost everywhere he goes. His latest dilemma, he doesn’t have a toy man small enough to fit in one of his trucks.

This morning the topic came up again.

Aidan: “Momma I need a little man to fit in my car.”

Me: “I’m sorry Aidan I don’t think they make men small enough to fit.”

Aidan: “A man fits in my dump truck.”

Me: “The dump truck man is big. Your car is little. He doesn’t fit.”

Aidan looking at his car: “Oh Pickles!”

"Oh Pickles", I love it. He told me he heard it on a cartoon. I hope it sticks

"Oh Pickles" I LOVE IT!!!!!! How very funny! Give me a call when you all are in WV. We will be in and out of town, but I would love to see you (and for you to see Jackson) if we can get it worked out. Merry Christmas!!

That is so cute! I think MR taught him Oh Pickles, from Higgleytown Heroes?? It was from a cartoon though! I tried to teach him to say Oh Fiddlesticks...because I thought the look on your face would be priceless! He didn't believe me when I told him it wasn't a bad word...he had to verify that with MR!! :)
