Do you ever consider what slightly unusual phrases you may be teaching to kids through your writing?
My sons say "Make way!" instead of "Excuse me," when they want someone (usually one of their siblings) to move out of their way. Eventually, I may insist they switch to "Excuse me," but it's so cute and unusual that I'll let them do it for a while. I wondered for a while where they had learned that expression. I finally figured it out. It's in the song "Where You Are" from Moana.
