Lost in Translation

Irelynn took off her jacket, and climbed into her chair. We had arrived home with food from McDonald's, and everyone was gathering around the table. A question was asked about the weather, to which Irelynn responded:

"It's shitty and cold out."

Everyone looked at each other. Knowing how to speak Irelynn-ese, I calmly replied:

"She said, 'it's chilly and cold out.'"

The tweens snickered. Irelynn then gave a report on what Connor was doing at the moment.

"Connor eating his crap!"

We all look at him, chewing on the strap of his high chair.

"Connor's eating his strap?"

Irelynn nodded.

"Yeah...Connor eating his crap."


What are the teachers going to think when she enters preschool? I'm dreading the future calls home.
