View Full Version : Just a question

I've made a page for the template challenge. I pput in photo's of my son where he is trying to push my husband over to let him fall. My husband actually does fall, letting my son believe he is realy that strong.
When this happened my son said (in dutch ofcourse I have got you)
I don't like the sound of that. I think in real a kid would have said something lik "got ya", but I'm not sure. My husband said it's "Gotcha".
So I would realy like to know what is right.
Please help, cause my english is pretty good, but the dialects are realy hard for me.
Thanks Renee

Gotcha is slang for I got you. It's usually said by someone who has just pulled a prank or trick as in Haha, You fell for it = Gotcha. I think it would be perfect for your layout as it would be a doulbe entendre. If your son is saying it-would be literally "I got you". If your husband is saying it-would be "I got over on you by pulling a good trick". Hope this helps !?!

Suounds cute - can't wait to see it!
In our family we may say, "Gotcha!" "Got ya!" or even "I got you!"
I think you both are right with your English slang!
