Overheard on the way out the door

A picture falls off the wall. C goes to pick it up.

Chichimama: “Don’t play with it. Don’t play with it. DON’T PLAY WITH IT! What part of ‘don’t play with it’ did’t you understand???”

C: “The ‘don’t’ part.”

Chichimama bursts out laughing.

C: (looking honestly confused) “What’s so funny?”

Chichimama falls over, still laughing.



  1. That clears up a mystery. At least you know now lol

  2. I could have written this, word for word. At least it’s comforting to know that Sean is not the only one whose selective hearing is especially acute!

  3. Holy hell, this doesn’t go away? I was hoping by 6 things would be better.

  4. It’s not just a boy thing either, as M (and J, too, actually) could easily have been the one to make this comment. Too funny.

  5. I can barely contain my laughter. That is priceless and so much the same conversation I have about ten times a day right now. Glad I am not alone 🙂

  6. Wow, I’ve been asking that question a lot myself. And now I have the official answer. And it’s the one I was afraid might be true. Too funny!

  7. I say that exact same thing to Mr. P all the time! He has yet to give me such a witty response, however.

  8. LOL!

    That sounds like a conversation that would happen at my house.

  9. That’s fabulous! I use that “what part of…” line all the time…as if my one year old is going to understand my sarcasm and humour. I’m in such deep doo-doo once he starts talking and repeating my words back to me!
