Boy, throwing a ball up in the air in the living room.
Me: Don't throw the ball in the house.
Boy: I'm not throwing it, I'm tossing it.
Me: Throw out the rest of your hot dog if you don't want it.
Boy - from a distance of several feet away from the garbage can winds up to throw.
Boy: But you said to THROW it out.
Boy pushing his feet on back of driver's seat while I'm driving.
Me: Stop kicking the seat.
Boy: I'm not kicking the seat.
Me: Stop pushing on the seat with your feet.
Boy: I'm not pushing on the seat.
Me: Whatever it is you are doing with your feet. Stop it.
Does anyone else have conversations like this? Please tell me I'm not alone.
