We’ll see about that he says. By he, I mean Lil G, our 3.5 year old! Our little Mr Independent. In fact I should write to Roger Hargreaves (who also shares our surname) and ask if he wishes to add a new ‘Mr’ to his collection.
Ooh he’s a cheeky monkey. Some days I look at him and I am blown away by how much he has grown up lately. By his maturity and understanding. He’s also rather funny and really makes me chuckle. Takes after his Daddy as I am really not funny. No, not at all.
I love to sit back and watch him play, seeing how his imagination builds a world around his toys. This is when I first heard him say ‘We’ll see about that’. He was playing with his beloved pirate ship and faced with a dragon who was trying to sink his ship, his response was ‘We’ll see about that’. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. Oh to be 3 again. Wouldn’t that just be fabulous?
Usually I laugh, that was until he used it tonight! Oh my goodness. How this fun little phrase has turned into my nemesis. Mr H just chuckles and actually I think it has come from him. It is often what he says to me when I refer to a coat or anything Cath Kidston I may have seen! Eek. Dam you Mr H.
This is how one gorgeous, funny little phrase has turned on me…
Me: Time to take off the headphones – Lil G: We’ll see about that (with hand on hip)
Me: Time for tea – Lil G: We’ll see about that
Me: Right kid, bath time – Lil G: We’ll see about that
Me: Only 2 stories tonight, it’s late – Lil G: We’ll see about that
Lil G: Where am I going tomorrow? – Me: Nanny’s – Lil G: We’ll see about that
Me: Time to tidy up your toys – Lil G: We’ll see about that
Me: Time to go home (it was freezing) – Lil G: We’ll see about that (whilst laughing)
You can see where this is going. Oh dear. Mr H, dear Mr H, this is you kid! This is on you. Look what you have done. This will teach you for saying no to a new coat! Ha ha ha.
What little phrases drive you crazy?
