Li'l Smart A**

You can substitute just about any particular expletive, profanity, epithet, cuss, outburst, swear, rant, oath, fulmination, imprecation, blasphemy or objuration you wish for the blank word balloon you see hovering omnipresently above the head of the Li’l Smart A**.

For this fiend has seen and heard and learned them all from daytime television, video games, reality shows, the nightly news, graphic novels and the internet, and isn’t afraid to use them. He’s verbally dextrous, yet morally blank and socially insouciant.

This is the kid that embarrasses the extended clan at the waterpark reunion, the one that gets the entire kindergarten class thrown out of the natural history museum, the one that has all five pews of nuns crossing themselves vigorously during the Palm Sunday procession.

Yep — he’s a pistol alright!

I can say I've known a few in my time and maybe even been one at one time. The challenge is your response to those who are outwitting and brilliant, smart as a whip! And you can not be too impulsive with the little A's either!

I have a 3 yr old, she can b a lil smart A too, that's when I show her that mama's a mean A... One day (she was 2 at the time) I found myself repeating myself in asking her to clean up her toys, so I said Jazz clean up your toys before I scream... my lil smart A said, go ahead mommy you can scream. Mama didn't scream that day lol

Hey, tsc, the only one I ever heard that was better than your experience was when I encountered a mother and her toddler having loud words in a local cafe. I missed most of the discussion, but passed by just in time to witness the 3-or 4-year-old fix her parent with a stern gaze and exclaim, "No, Mommy, you're embarrassing ME!"
