I have noticed something the last couple months that kind of weirds me out and I am not sure if its common or just a phase or what but My son ( 3 years old ) repeats certain things and gets very upset if you don't answer him - ex: at my moms he plays with the toys she has for him and every time we go there, he gets the same 2 toys and goes "mom, do I have both of them?" at first we thought he was learning Both or two of things but he will ask each one of us there at least 20 times in the 3 hours we spend there and it happens every time-if you say I am not sure honey, ask your Papi - he gets very upset until you answer him - he is asking very seriously also - another thing is each morning in the same spot, he asks me the SAME question : Mom, can we Keep ( our new kitten ) at our house? I mean, Literally in the same spot on the highway before the bridge, so not before an animal shelter or around cats but it just kind of weirds me out - he has several "quirky" things like this but if you dont' answer he gets very upset and seriously.. why the need to REask the same thing over and over? we are not making a big deal of it but is this not weird??

I think he's just reinforcing it in his mind. Both my older kids (now 12 and 8) used to ask a question and then repeat it in a whisper...e.g. "Are we going to the store?" (are we going to the store?)...which I always thought was weird.
