Up To You lar…

Jonathan picked up new phrase recently.

Up to you lar…

Few times I posted a question to him and his reply to me was… up to you lar…

Me: Jonathan, do you want to drink chocolate milk or strawberry milk?
Jon: Up to you lar…

Me: Jonathan, when you grow up, you want to be a doctor or a teacher?
Jon: Up to you lar…

Oh, my…where this little boy learn this from?

Oh, no…from me! Quite often “up to you” is my reply to Darling whenever he asked me to make a decision, like where to eat, what to eat, can buy this or not, etc.

I then asked Jonathan…

Me: Jonathan boy, do you know what it means when you say “up to you“?
Jon: It means…”I don’t want“.

Hah! So my son thinks that whenever Mommy answers Daddy with “up to you” means Mommy is angry or disagreeing with Daddy. Clever boy. It is kind of true but not always true because sometimes I am undecisive and it’s so much easier to push the burden of thinking to another person. 😛
