This morning I was throwing a baseball bat up in a tree to knock out a dog toy (don't ask). Lucy thought this was great fun. She was "fetching" the bat everytime it would fall and was running off with it.
So I would tell her in a deep, clipped tone, "Drop it!"
Schatz took offense, "No, 'Drop it' Mommy. Be nice a my doggie. Say, 'Please put that down, honey.'"
