For the last week or so there has been a new, very frequent saying in our house by our very vocal now 3 year old boy McGee. It is "or something". It goes a little like this:
McGee in his pajamas on the first day without rain this week, heading outside to let the dogs in from their run. He takes his first few steps outside and stops, "Is it wet out here or something?"
At Nordstrom's in the kids shoe department looking at the array of shoes, "Are these cute or something?"
Starting to unzip mommy's purse while I lay on the hot water bed table (my new favorite thing) at the chiropractor's office, "Do you have fruit snacks in here or something?"
Staring in the fully stocked pantry and hollering to mommy, "Can we have a snack or something?"
McGee is pushing on the pedal to his battery powered motorcycle but stuck between two chairs and not going anywhere, the wheels keep spinning and mommy says, "Can you please stop doing that or move it somewhere?" The reply which mommy hears, "Is that loud or something?"
After hearing a slight squeal in Em's room, "Is Emily awake or something?"
I think you get the idea. It's a phrase he's been using in many different circumstances and it just sounds so funny when he says it sometimes. On a further development note, McGee has completely regressed potty training-wise and only wants to wear a diaper now. He also has shown his willingness to attempt to climb out of the crib, by throwing a leg over the side while protesting going down for nap. I don't think he can actually get out yet, but thoughts on moving him out of the crib soon are in motion.
