Blah Blah Blah Blah…

We’ve been trying to break Cassidy from the ‘Um” word. She uses it about three times per sentence. It seems as if when we broke her from the word ‘like’ she replaced it with the word ‘um’.

What Ben does is tell her, ‘Start over again, take a deep breath and say what you have to say all in one breath.’ She can say A LOT in one breath. So today after telling her to do that and her getting out what she needed to say ‘um’ free this followed:

Ben: See, you can say a lot in one breath and without the word ‘um’!!
Cassidy: *nods*
Ben: Can you tell me how you are going to do it from now on?
Cassidy: I’m going to take a deep breath and then say what I need to say like *takes a deep breath* blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Like that.
Me: *laughing*
Ben: *laughing* You’re going to blog that, right?

Who taught her how to say ‘blah’?! sheesh!

  1. ROFLMAO!!! I’ve never made a big deal about these things, they’re just phases and will pass before you know it. Now if she was saying sh*t 3 times in a sentence we’d have a problem;)

  2. ahhaha Trey says, “oh shit” but most people don’t realize it…I’ve been trying to get him back on, “oh man”… mom’s learned to watch her mouth :blush:

  3. “Like” is the word I’m trying to get the kids out of the habit of saying. They’ll say, “Is there, like, anything for dinner?” and I drive them crazy by saying, “No, but there is actually something for dinner.”
