    That is such a hard phase! Mia used to ask, "What dat makin' noises?"… well when there are so many things around, especially in a car that make so many noises, it would get to be very frustrating. One of the worst times was when she was asking about a flag that was waving outside, and why it was makin' noises. Yikes, it took a really long time and a lot of her yelling at me before I figured that one out!

    I had the same result with "I don't know." I get it a lot now, even when Olivia knows the answer. I think she heard me say it so many times when I couldn't answer her questions that she thinks its what all the cool people are saying. She also says "I think…" before answering questions often because that's been my default when answering a question that I might or might not understand . Its crazy raising kids, right?

    @ Jen, yep, Annika does that too. Luckily for me, she will also correct me when I'm wrong. The other day we were out walking and I was huffing and puffing and she says, "Mommy, what's that noise?" I said, "That's a tired mommy." And she said, "No mommy, it's the birds. Not you, just the birds." LOL

    @ Elizabeth, I'm glad to hear that I am not the only mama to make the "I don't know" mistake. It makes sense that they would pick up on that, but it's so hard coming up with answers all the time!
