Lost in Translation: Mommy Style

Do you every say same something to your child they don't understand,  but you keep saying the same thing over and over hoping they get it and you are the one who is not getting it..

Today telling my 5year old daughter to water the plant.

Me: Honey water the plant for Mommy Please.
rethinking I need to be more specific it is on a the outside toy chest,  water will get in the chest
Me: Honey Move the plant to the pavement  then continue in kitchen
She moves the plant to the glass table... I look out again
Me Repeating: Move the plant to the pavement
She moves the plant to a cushioned chair,  starting to water..  I look out again
Me: Repeating 3rd time annoyed: Move the plant to the pavement!
light bulb..ding..
Me: Honey move it ground so you don't get water all over the place
She plant moves to the ground and waters it
Me: Thank you Great Job! (thinking dumb mommy)

Water plant Success!!

What word do you say that the kids did not understand.. but they did not ask you to explain?
