Do as I say, not as I do


When I was giving my daughter a bath, I washed one arm and asked her to give me her other arm.

“Other arm,” I said. That arm was occupied with a bath toy and did not immediately present itself to me. “Other arm,” I said again with some irritation.

My daughter slowly thrust forth her arm and said, “Maybe you can say, ‘Please give me your other arm,’ or ‘Other arm, please.'”

Where does she come up with such outrageous notions?

  1. Lol! I like how she offered them as two possibilities of politeness and not demands. I’ve been “caught” in moments like that before too. πŸ˜€
