Understand me?

There are times when the Webmaster and I ask the Munchkin if she understands us. We probably have said that phrase hundreds of times to her, mostly in the context of explaining why she’s in trouble. “Do NOT hit your little brother/climb on the table/throw things in the house/unfold the laundry/etc! If you do it again, you will get a timeout/get a spanking/hurt yourself if you fall/etc! Do you understand me?”

She must have understood something, because we overheard this last Wednesday, and pretty much every day since then she has said something similar:

“No, baby, no! You no touch (Munchkin’s) purse! Das mine! No touch! You unnerstand me?”
