Oops! Oh Dear!

The Little Lion has a couple of phrases that he uses constantly through the day, and to be honest I have no idea where he got them from. If he drops something, trips over or accidentally breaks something his eyes will widen, he'll bring his hands up to his mouth and gasp theatrically 'Oops! Oh No! Oh Dear!'

Now, it's safe to say that I had never uttered the words 'Oh dear!' in front of him during his life span so far, so I'm guessing he's picked them up from daycare. Now, it's not just a couple of times during the day that he uses them, but I would say around 30 to 40 times a day. I'm so used to hearing it that it barely registers anymore!

You know what? Deon and I have picked up on saying it too. We just can't help it. What things have your kids said that have been a surprise to you?

Playing Point and Shoot with Sunny and Scout


  1. oh dear. we went through that stage. how adorable!

  2. if we ask our little girl "can we have a look" she replies with "of course you can!". i just love it. among many other sweet things she says, she also has alot of made up words that are most funny! what a cutie you have there in that photo...adorable!

  3. How sweet!
    I only wish my little guy picked up such words from daycare. :)

  4. That's so cute. My daughter says a few things that we have kind of picked up as well as things my nieces say.
    Years ago when Finding Nemo was out at the movies, my niece couldn't say Nemo, still to this day I call the movie Finding Nebo!!! And she would call hoodies hookies and that has stuck as well.

  5. I love his expression in the photo!

    Max has picked up a few random things that I think are adorable. If he's not getting enough attention he yells out 'Sean' (my husband's name - wonder where he got that from!), and if I do something that he thinks is good, he says 'good boy' to me :)

    Its such a beautiful age :)

  6. so so little man say's it too, have to admit i started it because i never realised how much i say {oh shit} and he started so now mummy says
    "oh dear" hehehe have a great week lisa

  7. I love 'oh dear' - is a vast improvement on 'butt', which is what Mr4 seems to have picked up at preschool...
