Kids take things literally

As I was hanging up laundry this afternoon, Emily was nearby running around and hollering. She'd been acting particularly wild today, so at one point I gave her a stern talking-to (the sort she generally ignores) about calming down. Only this time I happed to say, "you need to shape up."

A minute later, she was in another room with Misty and Kendall. Misty heard Emily making grunting noises and turned around to find her doing what appeared to be stretching exercises.

"What are you doing?," asked Misty.

"Daddy told me to shape up," Emily replied without sarcasm, "so I'm trying to make myself a triangle."
