My pretend conversations

They way I imagine it:
Me: Put these apples away.
Her: But I don't know where they goooooooooo!
Me: Bull fucking shit you don't know where they go. Now go put them away and then sit in time out until bed time!

They way it really happened:
Me: Put these apples away.
Her: But I don't know where they goooooooooooooo!
Me: I'm sure you can figure it out. If they're not put away by the time I get back in with the groceries, you're going in time out.
Her *huffs off and puts them where she knew all along that they belonged*

_______

The way I imagine it:
Me: Hang your towel up.
Her: But I can't reach the hoooook!
Me: Give me the towel, you can drip dry from now on! No towel for you!!!

The way it really happened:
Me: Hang your towel up.
Her: But I can't reach the hoooook!
Me: You put it up there last night, so you can put it up there tonight. If it's still on the floor when I get back, I'm not reading to you.
Her: *Huffs off to hang towel on hook that is easily within reach*

___________

The way I imagine it:
Her: Can I have a snack?
Me: Yes, but only something small. Tell me what you want and I'll tell you if you can have it.
Her: But I don't know what to geeeeeeeeeet!
Me: Then just don't have a snack, you can eat at dinner.

The way it really happened.
Her: Can I have a snack?
Me: Yes, but only something small. Tell me what you want and I'll tell you if you can have it.
Her: But I don't know what to geeeeeeeeeet!
Me: Then just don't have a snack, you can eat at dinner.
Her: *Wails, whines and complains for an hour until dinner.* Click here to enlarge
