Stupid Rule

"Stupid" is one of the words we are not allowed to say in our house. Camille recently learned this word, and very soon after she learned how I feel about it.

So, this is what I sometimes hear while riding in the car with her:

Mom, is stupid is a bad word? We cannot say stupid. We can get in trouble if we say stupid. Stupid can hurt people's feelings. Stupid is not nice. I don't want to say stupid. We can't say stupid. Stupid is not a good word.

Repeat about 3x.

She seems to understand, yet manages to work that word into conversation about 30 times between our house and the school when it is time to pick up Kilian and Lucy.
