I hear "Uh-oh" quite often around our house as I'm sure many parents do with kids this age. Here's the run down of the "uh-oh"s heard from the boys today.

  • "Uh-oh, nose" heard when he sneezed.
  • "Uh-oh" heard at breakfast when a rice crispy stuck to his hand.
  • "Uh-oh" heard when a cranberry rolled down his sleeve during lunch.
  • "Uh-oh, joos" heard at Target as he chucked his sippy cup across the produce section.
  • "Uh-oh, Gush" heard as I unlatched Owen from his highchair and took him upstairs. Owen was concerned about Gus being left in his chair.
  • "Uh-oh, car" heard when we got to the top of the steps and Owen realized from favorite car was downstairs.
  • "Uh-oh, door" heard several times as he pointed to the broken microwave on their play kitchen. Gus broke it last week.
  • "Uh-oh, cow". I can't explain this one. Something happened in Owen's head.
  • "Uh-oh, star" heard as Gus showed Derek the stamps he got on his hands at Stretch-n-Grow. Owen's washed off.


  • "Uh-oh, Melmo" heard this morning. This was Gus's way of saying the TV wasn't turned on for him to watch Elmo and Sesame Street.
  • "Uh-oh, milk" heard as he poured milk on his plate this morning.
  • "Uh-oh" heard when he discovered the applesauce on his dog shirt.
  • "Uh-oh, milk" heard as he launched his cup across the kitchen.
  • "Uh-oh, Gush" heard as I was changing Owen's diaper. Gus calls Owen "Gush".
  • "Uh-oh" heard in Target when Gus noticed the light at the register next to us was turned off.
  • "Uh-oh" heard as he flooded our popcorn popper with milk. Milk was oozing from the bottom when I picked it up. Ugh!
  • "Uh-oh, shoo" heard tonight as he untied his own shoe.
  • "Uh-oh, nose" heard when Derek sneezed.

Sounds very familiar indeed! Don't you love the "uh-ohs" that aren't actually "uh-ohs" -- the ones when they intentionally do something not quite right and label it an "uh-oh"? Like throwing things into the floor from the highchair and then pointing to them and saying (so earnestly), "uh-oh!" Too much!
