Anyone Else have a Copycat?

My son is such a copycat! His new 'hobby' is driving me bananas! I'm not just talking about curse words, he will copy everything! (with slight variations[i.e. pronunciation])
From commercials, to people talking on the phone, to just having a 'conversation' with him.
"Dylan, lets pick up your trucks"
"Lets pick up your trucks"
"Dylan, its time to clean up your trucks, alright?"
"Its time to clean up your trucks!"
"Alright, enough mimicking. You are driving me nuts"
"enough mimicking.. I'm driving me nuts"

gah! I can't be the only one dealing with this. haha! how do you Moms deal??? :)

  • my son will copy what he hears sometimes-but its not a constant thing (he's 3)...if its a bad word my son repeats we tell him "no you don't say that-thats BAD",but as far as him just copying us I just brush it off for the most part-im sure its just a phase...I dont know what I'd do if it were constant though lol Good Luck!! Maybe you can beat him at his own game and copy everything he says lol
