What You Git

I can't remember where I heard this phrase, but it's my favorite to use on Dylan: "You git what you git, and you don't throw a fit!!" It's up there on my list of favorite phrases to use. Like, I never get sick of saying, "Dial Whine-One-One!" or "Call the Waaaaahmbulance!" These are just classic phrases to use on one's kids. And it's better than swearing at them, right?

One day, Dylan wanted something outlandish, so I, of course, said no. So he starts whining. I go, "Dylan, you git what you git, and you don't throw a fit!" He screamed, ran into his room, and slammed the door hard. I don't even blink when he does this anymore. He is such a hard kid. Sigh. Anyways, about thirty seconds after he had slammed himself into his room, he abruptly opened the door and yelled, "I GIT WHAT I GIT AND YES THROW A FIT!!!"

Ila always says that, I have no idea where she learned it either. Of course it is not applicable when she is unhappy about something only when her brother and sister are upsest.

Is it "git" or "get"? Hmmm. Jakob learned that from preschool, I think. Miss Karla probably had to say it to him a few times! ☺

All my kids have learned that phrase at school. I had never heard it before then.

Ethan picked that one up at preschool as well. But it usually gets used by him in reference to someone else's tantrum. When it's for him he is not quite so happy to hear it.
