Miss Mary at the daycare center whispered to me the other day when I arrived, “Zara has started cursing! Yesterday at snack. She started yelling a bad word.”
She eyed me carefully, attempting to gauge my reaction. I think she was wondering whether I would go all, not my babygirl on her. But I was more puzzled initially than anything else.
“Really?” I replied.
“Yes,” she answered seriously, “I just don’t know where she could have picked up that word.”
Then the lightbulb went off. I didn’t even have to ask her what word she was talking about. Now everything became clear.
“Did you happen to be serving Goldfish?”
“Yes! How did you know?” she asked, wide-eyed.
How did I know? I repeated to myself. Well, that’s a funny one.
“Well we have a bit of an issue with Zara and Goldfish…” I began.
Yet my internet friends, this is something you truly have to hear all for yourselves. Have a listen.
We have tried multiple interventions, but still, the problem remains…
