At least...

Yesterday for some reason Jack picked up the phrase "at least". When we were driving to the health club, he started saying "at least" before every sentence.

"At least we have a big tree in our yard, right Daddy?"

"At least you can practice driving."

"At least you can decide what you want to be when you grow up, right Daddy?"

And on and on...

Megan listened quietly from the back seat but since she has my genes in her, the apparent repetition of the phrase "at least" finally got the best of her. "Jack, why do you keep saying 'at least'?"

Jack, without skipping a beat gave her a sideways glance and said, "At least you better stay out of this conversation."

Touche!

At least he's learning new phrases?

Good for Jack for standing up for himself, lol!

Gavin's new phrase is "How about?" Every time I tell him to do something, he thinks about it for a moment and then says, "Um, how about [something different]?"

LOL My 2 year old's latest phrase is "that's great!" My 4 year old is just into the "Nuffin" phase any time you ask him a question. They are cute at first and get old fast, don't they? Yay for growing in the language dept. but hope he moves to a less annoying phrase for you soon!
