Real Dad Blog Version: Sometimes it is hard not to swear, especially in front of your kids. Just leave it to sports.
I am a die-hard Minnesota sports fan. I love the Twins, Vikings, Wild, Timberwolves and Gophers. Even if I miss a game, I need to know what happens when I wake up in the morning. The Minnesota Twins have been in the limelight lately. They came back from 7 games back to win their division over the faltering Tigers. It was the greatest comeback in Major League Baseball history. A team has also never came back from that far back to win their division or from 3 games back with 4 games to go.
Watching the Twins since they have been playing the Yankees has been very frustrating. It was frustrating during the regular season when the Twins lead every baseball game and then ended up losing them all. The same holds true during the postseason. They have been leading in all of the baseball games against the Yankees during the playoffs. They ended up losing the first two.
Right now, I am typing this dad blog to take the stress out from being a fan of the Minnesota Twins. They are losing 2-1 in the bottom of the 8th. Of course, they just made a stupid play when they could have tied it up. Swear words wanted to come out. I wanted to say every swear word in the book. It could have been OK since my son was asleep. Instead, I said swear alternatives like darn it and ugh. It is good practice so I do not swear in front of Rylan.
I do admit I have sworn in front of my son, Rylan, many times. It could have been from me stubbing my toe to swearing at the Twins. I do not have much a potty mouth but it can happen at times, especially at night like tonight when the Twins are playing.
- This dad’s suggestion on how not to swear in front of your kids…
- Practice alternative words like darn-it, ugh, shoot, ouch or no.
- Just don’t do it. It may be hard, but it is possible
- Think of your kids. Be a good role model.
- Practice, Practice, Practice
- Do not watch the Twins in post-season 2009.
Overall, it is disrespectful to swear in front of kids. It does make you look like the swear words you are saying. Thank you to the Vikings for easing my pain of watching the Twins, since the Twins just got swept. Ugh, shoot, darn-it, dang, shooty, squished bug, prune and ahhhh you stink Twins.
