What Part of 'No' Don't You Understand?

Sammi:  "Can I play with my Easy-Bake oven?"

Me:  "No honey.  It's too late."

Sammi:  "Please..."

Me:  "No Sammi.  It's time to go take your bath and get ready for bed."

Sammi:  "Pleeeeease..."

Me:  "No - now stop asking!"

Sammi:  "Puh-leeeeeeeze Daddy..."

Me:  "What part of 'No' don't you understand?!?"

Sammi (with a grin):  "The ‘Nnnn’ part."

Me:  "What?"

Sammi:  "You asked me what part of 'No' don’t I understand?  I don't understand the 'Nnnn' part.  I only understand the 'Oh' part."

Me:  "The 'Oh' part???"

Sammi:  "Yeah the 'Oh' part - like, 'Oh Sammi - it's Oh-kay if you stay up late and play with your Easy-Bake oven…”

She sure makes it hard to get mad at her.


  1. Hahaha! That reminds of when the Lil man told me that 'no' wasn't in his vocabulary, therefore he couldn't obey somehing he didn't understand.

    I swear, they have an answer for everything.

  2. Just so you know, she had me at Easy Bake Oven.

    You lost me at "it's too late."

    Point: Sammi.

  3. Delightful! Posted to my facebook profile. You may get some readers from Australia

  4. How could you resist her - did she get to play with her easy bake oven after all?

  5. Just say "yes". I bet it is easier than to try to resist her charm!
    She's just totally adorable! ;)
