One of Charlotte's new favorite phrases is "Stop it!" We are in the process of teaching her when it is appropriate to use this phrase, as right now she likes to use it every chance she gets in order to get a reaction.
However, I am here to share an appropriate use for this phrase. Today is "spread the word to end the word day." What word? The "r-word." A word that makes me cringe, and a word that needs to be erased from everyone's vocabulary.
I have blogged about this topic in the past, and if you are interested in more of my thoughts about the issue check out this entry from 2011, or this one from 2012, or this one from 2013.
Today, I am going to keep it simple.
If you use the r-word, stop it.
If you know people who use the r-word, tell them to stop it.
And, before you sign off for the day, please be sure to read this blog entry written by an incredibly talented mom of four (two of who have Ds). She says it best.
