Tuesdays With Tyler: “Shut Up”

The other day for no particular reason Tyler looked at me and said, “Shut up, Mommy.”  I was shocked at my three-year-old’s language.  Where had he learned that from?  We didn’t say “shut up” at home.  Was a teacher at daycare telling him to “shut up”?

I said, “Tyler, saying “shut up” to someone is a bad thing to say and we don’t say that to anyone.  Where did you learn this?”   And he looked at me innocently and said, “Bugs Bunny.” I realized that he had seen the Bugs Bunny cartoon Bugs and Thugs, which also has given us the classic quote “Shut up shuttin’ up”.

Truthfully this is one of my favorite Bugs cartoons.  It’s hard to be angry when your child picks up a phrase so innocently.  I just hope he doesn’t try to hit me with an anvil from Acme products in the future.

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
