Well, …..

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!

  1. LMBO!
    Duncan started doing this in the summer (he’s 4!).
    He was too lazy to come inside to use the bathroom, an when I confronted him, he just said “Well, it was an accident”. My mom nearly fell off the couch laughing….

    I t does sound funny, I’ll admit, but yes it gets pretty irritating after awhile. I hope Ethan stops and doesn’t pick up any more habits from school mates….

  2. I hope you get the toys picked up soon. Both Diane and Levi do the same thing. My favorite is “No Mommy you do it” Or “I don’t know how”
