Oh Whatever, You Know What I Mean

You would think after 4 years he would know what I mean when I say things that were unfamiliar to him before I met him.

For instance, when I was growing up my parents would say "Go take a bath", and it was clear as day what they meant.

When I tell Coco Puff to go and take a bath, he says "I don't take baths"
I look at him like, huh??

Then he says, "I take showers"

*rolls eyes*
Oh Whatever, you know what I mean.
I love that he's so playful.

It's interesting how he differentiates shower and bath. To me, when you take a shower you are indeed taking a bath.

In my culture, we say tub bath, when we mean sit down and bathe. But to him shower means stand up and hearing bath means sit down.

Here's another time this happens that always makes me laugh.

It's morning and he's in bed either going through his iPhone or watching TV or he could be talking right to me and I'll say "Okie, Wake up!

This time, he's looking at him like, huh??
I'll say it again, "Wake up, get ready"
Then he says, "I am awake"

*rolls eyes*
Oh Whatever, you know what I mean.

In my culture, we say "Wake up" to mean get up out of bed. I know he's not sleeping, but he's still lying in bed.
I love Funny moments....

You must be somewhere around my house stuck on the wall like a fly. I say the same exact things to my kids. It never fails when I tell them to get up, that they think that just because their eyes are open should mean something to me. Oh here's the worse one. To tell either of them to do something and the reply is, "you mean now." Duh!!
