After lunch today Katy was being grumpy and rude about one of her siblings. I called up to her that since she was being rude she should go ahead and start her math that I had assigned for her to complete this afternoon. I know she heard me, but she didn't come down and get her math book. I was trying to think of a fitting consequence and hadn't thought of one yet when it was time for storytime. I called all the kids and she told me she was drying off. I wanted to know what she was drying off from and she told me from her bath. At which point I realized she hadn't disobeyed so much as misheard me. I started laughing to myself and told her that I had said do your math, not take a bath. So she came down to storytime all clean and still had to do her math this afternoon during quiet time.
