How is it possible?

How is it possible that my ten year old daughter can download music to her MP3 player and my nine year old son can defeat the Emporer on Star Wars Legos video game, but ask them to put something on the table and their response is:

"What table?"
"The one in the living room or the dining room?"
"I just don't understand!"

Or it just ends up in the kitchen counter or in the bathroom.

I often wonder the same thing. Not long ago, I was fixing breakfast, and found the tub of butter in the pantry. The night before, after dinner, I had asked my 7 year old to put it up. I also once found a sock in my refrigerator. I guess it's selective hearing, or thinking. :)

Glad to hear it's universal! Just today, I asked E to bring me something from his room..."Where?" he says. I say, "Here, to me, downstairs." He replies, "Where, downstairs?" How many places can "to me" possibly imply?

My Mom used to talk about 'selective hearing' but I like to refer to this as 'selective intelligence'!!!! LOL! Have a great day!

So much I have to look forward to.

I shouldn't laugh, I really shouldn't, for this will be me in a couple years (if not sooner!).

I love your ticker by the way! :)

That. Is classic.

Just shared it with my kids...I think my kids live in your home part time or something!
