Is it just because he's three?

Sonny Ma-Jiminy: Is it rice for dinner?
Me: Yes, with beef & veggie casserole.
SMJ: What?

SMJ: Mum, why is that lady jumping over that bar?
Me: Well because in Pole Vault, they have to...
SMJ: What?

SMJ: Hey Mum, can you please push me on my bike?
Me: Yes, just let me finish washing these dishes.
SMJ: What?

SMJ: Mum, why is Smoochy crying?
Me: Umm, maybe because she, umm...
SMJ: What?

Me: Hey Sonny, can you please pick up Smoochy's pyjamas?
SMJ: What?

Me: Sonny, where's Puppity Doggity?
SMJ: What?

Me: Are you there Sonny?
SMJ: What?

Me: Son, it's nearly time for a bath!
SMJ: What?

and my personal favourite...

SMJ: Mum!
Me: Yes?
SMJ: What?

Wait, that does sound like a 3 year old, that sounds like all the 70 + year olds I know.

Aunt Debbi/kurts mom said...

I love you.

I am SO GLAD you all seem to understand! Thanks!

We cured that problem (eventually) by responding "Chicken butt" every time. Got a little embarassing in stores and restaurants but she thinks twice about saying "What?" all the time now.

My son says "what" all the time. He's five and it is still driving me nuts!

I must try "chicken butt"ing my four year old. I think they just like the sound of, "What?"

As for getting your attention just to ask 'what', that's just cheating.

Harpo is often asking me to translate made up words, which I always get wrong of course.

"Mum! Mum! MUM! What does 'pointrontreedo' mean?"
