3 year old Mocks everything I say!

My 3 year old boy repeats/mocks everything I say to him. It drives me nuts! I don't think he does it all the time out of meanness or to sass me. He's so used to doing it, it just comes out without him thinking about it most times. It's like second nature and he can't control himself. I'm pretty sure though that he only does it to me. How do I get him to stop?

You don't get him to stop. He is 3. He thinks it is a game and he gets a noticeable response from you, so he continues. He probably don't copy anyone else because they just ignore it. Try that, ignoring him when he starts to copy you. My 2 year old is doing that sometimes too. I find it funny so I don't help with not encouraging it. However, I am sure one day it will drive me nuts too. It is a kid thing. He will more than likely grow out of it or grow tired of the reaction he gets.
