Me too!  I really try not to when kids are around, but I still slip up sometimes.  I actually tend to remember (and apologize) more around pregnant friends lol.

Oh yea. I have a major potty mouth. I tend to express myself with loads of expletives even if they’re not really warranted.

I try my best to censor myself around children who are old enough to repeat what I say but sometimes I slip. I won’t drop the f-bomb or anything but something a “bitch” or “shit” will make its way into conversation.

I have a major potty mouth but I find it’s easy to be on my “best behaviour” around kids. It’s just persistance I find and when they reach a certain age knowing that they’re likely to say whatever you say, LOL! I’ve only sworn in front of my stepson once, and it was when we were sliding down a hill in my truck driving down a hill during a snowstorm and I was pretty sure we were about to die. I told him to cover his ears. LOL!!!

no.  My mother swears like a sailor and I always hated it.  I remember being SO embarrassed as a kid.    It takes a lot to get me to swear.

Fiance on the other hand. . dropping F bombs got out of control so we had to institute a swear jar.  The proceeds paid for my wedding earrings.

Raising my hand in shame! Yes, I cuss like a sailor as well and have always planned on stopping when I have kids. I don’t really think it will be hard though, I don’t cuss around my nephew or neice and able able to filter well around fiance’s family.

From time to time if I am really angry, but for the most part no.  I used to cuss and curse quite a bit, but now that I have two kids I have learned to control myself.

Me fuckin’ too! 

LOL My fiance hates it when I swear, but ah well. I really try not to, unless I’m agitated. I don’t do it around kids or family.

I’m pretty bad about it.  I have a hard time filtering around kids.  Luckily my BFF’s daughter is 8 now so at least she understands that just because I say a certain word doesn’t mean she can.  My guess is that it will be a hard habit to break until you hear something come out of your child’s mouth that is vastly inappropriate (which they all do!).  Then it will probably “stick” a little better.

I do… but for some reason I have no problem finding another word to use if I’m around children or other adults that wouldn’t take kindly to the use of an expletive. Sure, words have slipped but I’ve always apologized. I just have to think about what I’m going to say before I say it.

I swear a lot, but, for some reason, filtering comes natural to me in inappropriate situations (around children, old people, etc.). I’m not sure why, but I’ve always had a great “on/off switch”.

well honesty doesn’t entail vulgarity. maybe try discplining yourself by having a swear jar (and don’t put a dollar each time… put like $10 each time), a swear band (rubber band that you snap back onto your wrist), or any other consequence you can think of. you can still be agressive and straight forward, but that doesn’t mean f bombs are needed. find a new adjective, because if you’re really worried about your daughter cussing in kindergarten, then please be the example and change your speech. it seems like you’re very laxidaisical and waiting for someone to make you feel better. you have another year to stop cussing, so do something quick because those words will be engraved into her brain faster than you can say them.
