What “I can’t want to” means

Just in case the grammatical incorrectness of my blog name confuses you, here is the origin of the saying.  Let me give an example (or several).  My four-year old is the phrase-ologist.   He uses it as his standard, go-to answer for a myriad of situations.  Want to wear big boy pants? –  I can’t want to. Wanna go pee-pee on the pottychair? – I can’t want to.  How about on the big potty? – I can’t want to.  It’s not exactly a NO and I know I should be more firm with him.  But, heck, I can’t want to sometimes, either.  Wanna do laundry? dishes? clean up bathroom?…you get the picture.
