A few minutes ago, I told Nathan that I wanted him & Emily to play outside today as I am sick & tired and it’s a beautiful day out so no reason for them not to go out. Emily came back in and said “Why do we have to stay outside the whole rest of the day?” I told her “I didn’t say that. I said I want you to play outside. Now go back out.”
Emily went back out and what I said apparently got lost in translation from mommy-talk to kid-talk because I overheard her telling Nathan “Mommy says we DON’T have to stay outside all day. We just have to stay out for a few more minutes until its snack time soon!” “Snack time” is around 3 pm. It’s now 1:30. I didn’t mention snack time either.
