    All depends how much patience I have! I also get told off if I don’t know the answer! x

    The “why” stage has also signalled a change for me personally. Because I’ve realised that despite vehemently saying I wouldn’t do it, I find myself repeating phrases my mum used to say to me and my brother. And I’m going to do it even more as they get older. And there’s nothing I can do about it!!! It’s not all bad, but I wish I could be more original in my responses sometimes!! Made me smile to see your experiences of it too :))

      I cringe every time I hear myself repeating things my Mum used to say to me when I was little but it really is impossible not to 🙂

    Oh yes, I just love it – not!?! We’ve also had the “pardon” stage. You know the one, when they say “pardon” to near enough everything you say, when in fact C has actually heard everything I’ve said!!

    I’ve learnt now to not repeat myself every time he says “pardon”, and if he did actually hear, he doesn’t say “pardon” again! It has stopped me from going insane!!!!!!!!!!!!

      We haven’t had that one yet, she’s not that polite!!!! But I will be mindful of it if she ever starts on that line 🙂
