|Come on Ma!|
Me: Chicky, put your toys away.
Chicky: Okay, Mama.
(walking towards the steps)
Me: Chicky, I said put your toys away.
Chicky: I did!
Me: I meant put them in the playroom, not on the steps.
Chicky: But they are out of the living room.
Me: I can't win!
Or maybe the problem really isn't communication, maybe it's lack of listening.
|I'm sorry what did you say?!|
Chicky: Mom, when's the Jello gonna be ready?
Me: It won't be ready till after supper.
Ducky: What did you say about Ninjago?!
Me: I didn't say Ninjago Ducky, I said Jello.
Chicky: THE JELLO IS READY!!
Me: No it's not, it will be ready after supper.
Ducky: We are having Jello for supper?!
