The other day I was doing a few dishes (I've found that we go through WAY too many dishes being home than in our normal out-and-about life, of course) when I heard the following from the living room.
Holding a chocolaty treat: Mom? Can I have this?
No, not right now.
(trot trot trot trot)
To me: Can I have this?
From the living room: [FYO]! I JUST told you "no"!
Yeah, but [Blogauthor] doesn't know what you said!
