This has happened twice now, once to me and once to Vinny.
Bella wanted to climb up on the counter to see what I was doing in the kitchen and I said no. She continued to ask, even adding 'please' to her request and I ignored her for a while. Eventually I had enough and I said, "Bella, I said no"
Her Response (said with "yeah I know" attitude): "I said please"
So you did, my love...so you did. Astute observation.
