    Default"In a minute!"

    Paddy knew exactly what that phrase meant. He knew it meant ------- ; that length of time until we did something together. Seven dashes worth.

    Seamus and Flynn? "Now? Now?!? How 'bout NOW! *hop hop hop* Now?"

    Hmmm... somewhere along the line I guess I failed in Lab Vocab lessons with these two.

    *sigh*

    Okay... now!

    The Lab vocabulary is a difficult one to learn. However, Rush knows what.. you have to wait.. means and tho she isn't good at waiting she knows that whatever she wants isn't going to happen yet. Don't you just love them!!

    I just use "Wait". It could be a second...could be a couple of minutes.

    Haha.. oh man! Abbey doesn't know what it means when I tell her to "hold on!!!" but if I tell her wait she'll normally chill out.. but if she has to potty really bad, it won't stop!

    I knew you guys would "get" this post.
    My guys know "after school", "in a while", "be right back"
    And they know the length of time each phrase means.
    I guess "In a minute" was just unique to Pad's dictionary.

    And that is fine by me. : -)

    Oh - both my boys know that in the morning when I open one eye that it's not time to get up so they bob around for 20 seconds before I say "five minutes" which they know means "he's not getting up for at least 1/2 an hour "

    Awwwww Paddy, such a smart one!
    My guys know "after school", "in a while", "be right back"
    HA! I thought I was the only one who talked to them like that. I always say "be right back" or "going to the store".

    Lab Vocab. Oh, that's wonderful.

    I'm careful NOT to say to Wes STAY, when leaving for work etc., not wanting him to be in suspended animation that whole time or, more likely, get confused over what STAY means and therefore spoil it.

    So I've taken to telling him, "You can't come, bud."

    At which point, I get the sorry-eyes, the heavy-sigh. And he shuffles off to the sunny square in the living room, as if to say, "Okay, FINE. IF you're going to abandon me all day long, it may as well not be a TOTAL loss and so... it's naptime."

    As you can tell, Wesley has a pretty extensive Lab Vocab himself.
