This is Ethan’s new thing.
We tell/ask him something, and he responds by saying “well, ……”
Usually he gives a reason why he shouldn’t do what we’ve asked him. Ugh.
For example, I might say “Ethan, please pick up your toys” and he will say “Well, I don’t want to” or “Well, I’m actually still playing with them” or “Well, in 3 minutes I will do it”.
It was cute for about the first 2 hours, and now it is just annoying!
I’m pretty sure he picked it up from a boy at preschool (who I don’t like, because he is teaching my child lots of bad habits) so I pity those poor teachers who have to listen to it all day from more than one child!
