Daddy Bad!

by doodaddy on October 11, 2007

Installing a hair rubber band onto Boobaby’s mop this morning, I pulled too hard and broke it with a snap. (No, I’m not brutish — it was one of those cheap things from the drugstore and it pulled out at the crimp.)

Startled, Boo looked up at me and I said reflexively, "Sorry! My bad!"

Boo smiled indulgently and agreed. "Yeah. Daddy bad!"

And she’s been repeating that about once an hour all day now. I fumbled the ball we were playing with: "Daddy bad!" I broke the sidewalk chalk by pressing too hard: "Daddy bad!" Or, just walking down the street, apparently for no reason: "Daddy… bad."

Hm. Is there any way to undo language development?

My friend, I do believe that you are screwed.

Your best bet is probably to ignore the comment. If you or anyone else laughs, it’ll never wear off! Good luck! 🙂

Could be worse. My friend’s 2 year old son says “damnit” with her exact inflection. Now if you can just get her to say “My bad” instead of “Daddy bad”.

I’m just waiting for when she says it during a visit to a pediatrician or when you open the door to some jehova’s witnesses….

Haha, how adorable! Yeah, I can imagine the strange looks that phrase could get from people! 😛
