You Gotta Find The Magic Words

Dad: "Avery, Luke is awake, please go open his door."
3-Year Old: "No."
Dad: "C'mon, go let him out. I hear him awake up there."
3-Year Old: "No."
Dad: "Avery, do not open Luke's door. I don't want him out yet."
3-Year Old: (in a sing-song voice as she runs up the stairs) "I'm gonna let Lukey out!!"

Bill Cosby was right. Reverse psychology does work!
