I was getting ready to leave Sammi with her big brother while I went grocery shopping and I was going over what I expected of her while I was gone.
Me: "Okay. While I'm at the store you need to clean up your room and then you can watch cartoons until I get back. Listen to your brother and NO fighting."
Sammi (barely looking up from the TV): "Sure..."
Me: "What did I just say?"
Sammi: "Don't fight and watch cartoons."
Me: "Not exactly. Look at me for a second. Clean up your room first and then you can watch cartoons until I get back. You also need to listen to your brother. Is that clear?"
Sammi: "Sure, whatever..."
Me: "Samantha, am I crystal clear?"
Sammi: "No - you are definitely NOT crystal clear."
Me: "What didn't you understand about what I just told you?"
Sammi: "I understood everything you told me. You also asked me if you were 'crystal clear' and you're not."
Sammi rolled her eyes at the confused look on my face, took off her glasses and handed them to me. The lenses were all smudged and dirty.
I sighed at my smart-aleck daughter, cleaned her lenses and then handed the glasses back to her.
Sammi (putting her glasses on and smiling sarcastically): "Now you are crystal clear Daddy!"
