1. I'm bored
2. Why?
3. Are we nearly there yet?
4. It's not fair!
5. Do I have to?
6. It wasn't me
7. Can I have...?
8. In a minute
9. I hate you
10. He / she hit me
11. I don't want to go to bed
12. He / she started it
13. I'm hungry
14. You never let me do anything
15. What?
16. I don't like it
17. I want this
18. Can you do it?
19. I can't do it
20. But you said...

Have you all heard these a million times too? Any other annoying sayings you hear too often?

Heres one: my son does something naughty, and while hes doing it, scolds himself. So he will climb on the table and say "don't climb on the table" while hes doing it. He will grab the dog and say "be nice to doggie". Or after I tell him "stop it" he will say "stop it momma" back to me.

Nicole's favorite way to try and sway us is "But so and so's parents let them" or "But EVERYONE gets too". /:)

Milla's new favourite is, when I ask her to do something, she goes 'No way!!'. I have no idea where she got it, because I honestly don't think I say it, so who knows? The first time she said it, I had asked her to come give me a cuddle. Today, when I asked her if she wanted to 'go nini', I got the 'No waaaaaaaaaay'! I tell you, this child is only 16 months old but thinks she's 6 :-s

I also get 'what's that?' a lot, but now she kind of answers her own question lol ('This is.....'). Yeah and I can't wait for the 'why' /:)

Bringing up Family Guy, my friends son's do the Evil Monkey thing. (They haven't seen Family Guy.) They do the "Hate you!" and the little point. I try not to laugh because it's not funny for them to say that to her, but she can't help but smile at them either. She just tells them, "Love you!" and points back, they get all ticked and run off. lol.

When we did that to my mom her response was, "Well I must be doing something right then huh?!" We'd get so mad we'd run off. lol. I can just hear myself saying that to my daughter the first time she tells me she hates me. lol

Ethan's new one is "dop" which means stop. lol It's kind of cute though, I suppose I shouldn't laugh when he says it but, he's saying it ALL the time now.

You know that episode of Family Guy that you see all the time where Stewie is standing beside Lois on the bed and he's going "Mom. Mom. Mom. Momma. Mommy. Mom. Momma. Mom. Mommy. Mommy. Mom. Mom. Mom." and then she says WHAT!

We used to do that to my mom all the time... after she yelled what we would say "I love you" or "NOTHING!" and run away giggling. I'm sure it drove her nuts though. We did it a lot lol
