I think I have finally lost my mind. This wonder child of mine picks a new and different phrase or word to say and then he's stuck with the word for phrase for a very long time. There have been a range of words and he will just out of the blue for no reason whatsoever blurt out the word or phrase wherever or whenever he sees fit. Last year it was "Barney's on fire", drove everyone crazy, year before "Smoke Pot", he'd write it on schoolwork, blurt it out in class, say it in the grocery store, kind of like a tic. This year's word is "LEG", yes "Leg". There is a bit of history behind the word "leg" but now it's just a word he will blurt out. I was discussing a new bus issue from this morning with his teacher and one of us mentioned the word "leg" in the conversation. Then the teacher said to me, Mr. Science Teacher said he was mad at difficult child today. All I could think of was UH OH, here we go. Well, then she goes on to say that Mr. Science Teacher was mad at difficult child because when he was out mowing his lawn this weekend, out of the blue, this teacher blurts out at the top of his lungs "LEGS". Well... I could not contain myself I just started belly laughing on the phone, and his teacher in turn starts belly laughing...so, I've concluded that difficult child has driven us both over the edge. Then, out of the blue he said it this evening and I just couldn't help myself I was ROTFL again. I am curious does anyone else have a child that just out of blue picks a word or phrase and repeats it out of the blue like this??
