I was sitting with my kids at a gymnastics class when this kid suddenly spoke, "God Damn it!" I turned toward the eight-ish looking girl and spoke in a tone, "I'm sorry, what did you say?"
Startled the girl looked up at me, the stranger, but yet still a mom, and said, "Oh, yes, sorry, I meant 'dang' it..."
The girl went back to her math a little flustered and nervous.
That's the warning I give to my kids daily, "I know you are smart and will always do the right thing, but in case you forget, I have spies everywhere."
When I saw the girl's mom, I introduced myself and shared what happened with her daughter. She and I had a nice giggle as we reconfirmed what we already know: We like the nonjudgmental Moms that help keep kids in line.
