It goes without saying that when you become an au pair you need to face major life changes such as learn a new language, live with strangers and blah, blah, blah… But what people forget to tell us is that the hardest thing is to stop cursing!!!! Well, I don’t know about you but for me it was extremely hard to stop myself from swearing in French. Even worse, you may  experience what I went through inin my book “Au pairs love cupcakes”:


I know how frustrating it can be so that’s why I’ve decided to provide you guys with several alternative curse words in English of course  to make you feel better (I know, I know I’m amazing…and you’re welcome) So get ready because now ‘Fuck’ will become ‘Fudge’:

1) Aw, duck water!

2) Aww, noodles!

3) Barbara Streisand!

4) Barnacles!

5) Bogus!

6) Bull spit!

7) Caesar’s ghost!

8) Cheese and rice!

9) Cheese whiz!

10) Crap!

11) Holy Frijoles

12) Gosh darn it!

13) Son of a motherless goat!

14) Judas Priest!

15) Oh, snap!

16) Oh, man!

17) Tartar sauce!

18) Pokémon!

19) Geez Louise!

20) Son of a nutcracker!

You can find more words here and here. I hope this will be helpful 🙂
