This little poem crossed my desk recently and it exposed a great truth:
I lost a very little word
Just the other day,
It was a very naughty word
I had not meant to say.
But then, it was not really lost
When from my lips it flew,
My little daughter picked it up
And now she says it, too.
Out of the mouths of babes come words their parents wish they had never said. We do teach by example, of this there is no doubt.
