The F-Bomb

I'm sitting at the table tonight making a bottle rocket car with Corbin and Brian. Brian is dancing around and all of a sudden lets out a brand new sound, "Fuh-ka". He likes the way it rolls off his tongue and he starts skipping around the table repeating, "Fuh-ka, fuh-ka, fuh-ka". I am not imagining this because Corbin is already standing up and yelling, "Brian that's a BAD WORD! I can't believe you know the 'F-word'!" (I can't believe Corbin knows what the F-word is!). I am trying my hardest not to laugh.

I sternly tell him not to make that sound. He giggles and says it again. I don't think he knows it's a bad word. I'm not even sure he's aware of bad words. I think he just likes the stimulation it gives- like when he use to go around saying "digga, digga, digga, digga".

I can only imagine him letting the f-bomb fly in kindergarten tomorrow. My son will be a wonderful peer model for his class. I'm not sure what we can do about it- I don't think I can punish him for just making a new sound- I'm kind of in awe that he's putting the "F" and "Ka" sound together- those are sounds he struggles with sometimes. I almost want to pat him on the back and say, "Nice job making those sounds!".

I wish I had an excuse that would let me just drop the F-bomb whenever I felt like it.

Can you shape it into another word that starts with an "f" and ends with a "uck"?
