Sent The Yngrdottr down to the laundry room to get her clean clothes but I *said* “go down to the laundry basket and see if you have clean clothes in there.” So naturally she bebops back up and goes about her business. I said, wait, you didn’t have any clean laundry to put away? Of course she replied with “Ooooh, I thought you meant just LOOK.”
Spoiler: this has nothing to do with pudding.
“Oh Lord, this child. She’s dragging her feet getting ready for bed and it’s already an hour late because we watched a movie.. I tell her “just because you choose to ignore them, the rules doesn’t change.”
She literally creeps into the bathroom at a snail’s pace to brush her teeth and I snap “come on, hurry up!” to which she replies, huffily: “don’t be so hasty!””
People wonder why having children ages you… 🙂
