Rhetorical Questions Sometimes Get Answered

We are used to asking Zane questions and not expecting an answer. We've been doing this for his entire life, because the best way for a child to learn language is to hear people talk, and well, because we like making sarcastic comments. However, I think it's time for my husband and I to begin tempering our comments.

For example:

Zane: "Mommy, I poop!"

Me: "Geez, Zane. Can't you do that when your daddy is around?" This statement is said in a sarcastic tone with an eye roll for flourish, as if I am the only person in the house who ever changes a diaper/pullup in the three years since Zane was born.

Zane: "No."
