Listen Harder

Toddler: "Mummy, mummy, where's the yoghurt?"
Mumsgather (washing dishes): "Afterwards mummy give."
Toddler: "Mummy, mummy, where's the yoghurt?"
Mumsgather (still washing dishes): "Afterwards mummy give."
Toddler: "Mummy, wheres the yoghurt?"
Mumsgather: "Wait, afterwards mummy give."
Toddler: "Mummy, mummy, wheres the yoghurt?"
Mumsgather: "Wait! Afterwards mummy give."
Mumsgather (muttering under breath): "Why must you ask the same question 10 times?"

Toddler: "Mummy, mummy, where's the yoghurt?"
Toddler: "Yoghurt in the fridge, mummy."

Mumsgather (slaps forehead): "Oh yes, yes, of course you are right. The yoghurt is in the fridge."

Smart toddler, bad mummy.
Moral of the story: Take time to listen to your children. (Or..... be prepared to repeat yourself 10 times).
