Simon Says Gone Wrong

Ethan: Simon says 'stand up.'


Ethan: I said 'Simon SAYS!'


K: Yes, Ethan.
Ethan: Mom, he is NOT doing what I say!
K: I'm sorry, Ethan. But if we are going to get technical, he can't do what you say.
Ethan: MOM!! I am playing 'Simon Says' so Mason is supposed to do what I say.
K: In theory you are exactly right.
Ethan: Not in theory, Mom. For real he is supposed to do what I say. I told him to stand up.
K: Ethan, why do you think he isn't doing what you say?
Ethan: Because he can't really stand yet?
K: And?
Ethan: Because he doesn't understand what I am saying?
K: I imagine that would make playing 'Simon Says' a little complicated.
Ethan: But he is really supposed to do what I say.
K: Where's Nathan?
Ethan: He doesn't do what I say either.

I know exactly how he feels.

Great photo!

And how awesome would it be totally awesome if tacking 'Simon Says' on the front of everything guaranteed success? 'Simon Says traffic light turn green!' I would be all over that. I totally can't blame Ethan for trying.

All I want to know is if they both climbed to where they're sitting (fireplace mantle? top of a storage hutch?) all own their own :).
