Anyone who has kids know...
sometimes words can get crossed,
there can be misunderstandings,
and sometimes...well, they just take things literally.
Recently, while getting the house ready for company
(because yes, unfortunately, sometimes it's not ready)
I told both of the kids for the 300th time to
"GO TO YOUR ROOM AND GET EVERYTHING OFF OF THE FLOOR SO I CAN VACUUM!"
why would I be surprised
when I walked into this?
Because, Geez, I guess he did what I asked.
I could vacuum!
