Or in our case - Pre-teen Latin.
Why is it that when kids get a certain age, everything they say has a sound at the end to indicate attitude? I discovered this a little while back and thought I would share. Maybe you have noticed this as well. Did WE ever have this language? I don't remember responding that way. Maybe my mom can clarify. BB started a while ago with answering questions.
Me: "Why didn't you clean your room like I asked?"
BB: "I don't know-AH!"
Me: "Clean your room."
And so on it goes. Now LB has started to do this. He doesn't say much, but when he hurts himself-or thinks he hurt himself-he is starting to yell "Hurt my toe-AH!". It used to be just "Hurt my toe!" Is he copying his brother or is he just growing into this language that develops with age? I will have to keep a close ear on this.
Is there a special pill or cream out there that can curb these outbreaks? I guess maybe it goes away with time, like an allergy or something. It's a mystery. Maybe there could be a special scientific experiment on this. We could pinpoint the cause and stop it before it develops. Wow, we could have attitude-free children. What would that be like? It could be a kind of Ozzie and Harriet world. hmmm.... I guess that sounds a little boring, huh?
Well since I have been sitting here I realize that it is lunchtime, so I have to go feed the kids now. And I have to go do some laundry-AH. And I don't know why-AH. How come I always get stuck with this-AH?! It's not fair-AH!!
