You know how old people get frustrated with their computers because "it keeps doing things and I don't know why" 
and computer programmers are all like "computers ONLY do what you tell them to. You must have told it to." 
And then the computer programmers scoff because they know that their superior intellect has won them yet another battle? 

That is how I feel with my children. I'll say something, they'll do something and I'll be frustrated. Then my mom (the computer programmer with superior intellect who never loses at anything) will come along and point out how they did exactly as instructed. 

I asked Tommy to bring me his dirty laundry so I could sort it. 

Technically he did. But clearly there were missing 1s and 0s in this operation.

John is quickly picking up the practice. His current favorite is to clear his plate.....onto the floor.

But he's so dang adorable that I simply can't help but love him while I scrape sick-nasty cheerios and bananas off the floor.

I guess I should be enjoying the fact that they obey me at all. Ever. Because there will likely come a time when they don't.
