When I was a little girl, my grandmother always used the phrase ...Pete and Repeat!
She would say it when you did the same thing as someone else, like my brother would come in tattling and then I would come in tattling, she would always say..."Here comes Pete and Repeat". I thought about this when I saw my youngest granddaughter holding her phone up to her ear, like her Uncle Lee was doing. It was so cute, she is just at that parrot stage or as Grandma would have said it.. the Pete and Repeat stage. Every day Jenny is coming up with new words that she hears from us then she repeats it a million times, cute to me... but sometimes annoying to her family!
Some times I wish we were more like little children...good little listeners and imitating the good we see others do all around us. Yes, those little children are such great teachers!
