he *is* the reason for the season

So my bosses have been trying to teach Master of Disaster that it's not ok to say God or Jesus unless you're praying.  This has turned out to bite us all in the ass.  Now, if he hears you say either one he will ask if you were praying.  If you say no, he'll tell you that it's not nice to say God/Jesus unless you're praying.  If you say yes, he'll ask you what you're praying for.  And we all usually turn what ever we were saying "God" about into a prayer:  I was praying that the car in front of us would speed up.

So today he was playing with a train that runs around the Christmas tree (yes they actually have a Christmas train) and it kept getting stuck in the back of the tree and I kept having to crawl back there to fix it.  Finally I told him this was the last time I would fix it.  As I'm attempting to crawl out from behind the tree I said "oh jeez"  and I know I said "oh jeez" because I said it like I was from Minnesota.  Then I hear MofD whisper "oh Jesus."

Me:  What'dya say?

MofD:  I said what you said

Me:  What did I say?

MofD:  you said "oh Jesus"

Me:  No I said "oh jeez"

MofD:  Oh.  I was praying.

Me trying not to laugh in his face:  What were you praying for?

MofD:  that the train wouldn't get stuck

I love this kid. This is also part of my new year's resolution along with the no F word resolution. I need a vocabulary makeover.
