If you have kids at home like we do, you might be learning that there is a new bad word that should not be used around your children right now. Interestingly enough, it is our children that wince when they hear the word and they plead for us to not use it in their presence. In fact, if they hear just a faint whisper of the word it causes awful noises to come from their mouths followed by instant begging for us to stop. I can feel for them because we all have been through it and even I am not happy to have to mention the word because it means that summer is almost over and family time becomes much more limited. Yes School is just around the corner and we all must accept that fact.
