turns out i'm not as bad as i thought...

This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words:

bitch (3x)
hell (2x)
crack (1x)
Interestingly, they made no bones about the times I dropped the f-bomb(s) in this post and this one, too. Not that I'm competing to be the biggest pottymouth in mom-bloggerdom, it's just that this woman got an NC-17! How does one do that without resorting to posting porn videos? I'm in awe. The stuff I've read so far has been funny and occasionally irreverent, but I don't have to shield the screen and cover my kids' ears. Maybe I've missed something; I'll report back later.
In the meantime, perhaps this will up my rating. Words exchanged between me & almost 9-year old son this afternoon:
(Background - He's watching the old school live action Batman episodes; Robin's real name is Dick Grayson. Fade in)
"Mom, 'dick' is a bad word for 'poop' you know."
"Actually," (I cannot help myself; English major, teacher, trivia queen, stickler for details) "it's another word for 'penis.' "
Silence, then nervous giggling.
"That's weird."
