Speaking of listening...

How many of us tell our children something over and over expecting that sooner or later they will listen? Yeah, sure they will. On one day my daughter was playing in another room and I called to her to come and pick up some toys in the living room. No answer. The house was quiet and she was not six feet away in her bedroom. When I called again, a bit louder, telling her to "COME get your toys!" She replied in a VERY indignant voice, "I didn't hear you the first time!"
