A teacher at my three year old's day care is filling her head with wonderful catch phrases like:

  • see you later, alligator
  • after a while, crocodile
  • no way, José
  • ok, croquet
  • good deal, banana peel

And some other stuff. I can't compete!

What are some cute phrases you use with your pre-schoolers?

Tsk. Somebody drive-by downvoted this (i.e. without commenting.) I've restored balance to the Force. +1

Yeah, that was odd. It is community wiki and tagged fun. Seems reasonable.

My three year old loves this one.

A friend of mine pointed out the song "See You Later, Alligator" by Dr. Jean has a great list of catch phrases. I don't want to violate her copyright by reproducing the lyrics here, so just search http://drjean.org for "see you later alligator". Great stuff.

(Dr. Jean seems very willing to share, saying, "Classroom teachers may download and use any materials on this site with their students and the students' families.")
