Today In Mom News: Does Yo Momma Have a Potty Mouth?

The New York Times blog Motherlode has a post today from editor Vivian Manning-Schaffel who is trying her darndest not to curse in front of her children. We are reminded fondly of our mother’s potty mouth, and believe that a few four-letter words did not hurt us too badly as children. We were always taught that it wasn’t the word that was so bad, it was the intent: A cruel “shut up” directed towards a person is much worse than an expletive exclaimed when you stub your toe. What were your moms’ attitudes towards cursing? Did she curse like a sailor? Did she scrub your mouth out with soap when you said h-e-double-hockey-sticks? We want to hear about it in the comments!

      Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility
      issues. When I look at your blog site in Safari, it llooks fine but when opening iin Internet Explorer, it has soe overlapping.
      I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
      Other then that, fantastic blog!
