Stop the Sarcasm

Dear Smart Alec,

Please refrain from using sarcasm while speaking with my daughters. The resounding "Uh?"s are a sure sign that they do not get it. I repeat: They do not get it. Nor do I want them to 'get it'.

There are years ahead of me filled with attitude and sarcasm and, frankly, I plan to procrastinate in this area for as long as possible. There is nothing worse than explaining sarcasm to 3 and 4 yos, except maybe explaining the birds 'n bees. And I don't plan on doing that anytime soon.

Our resident sarcastic voice is Bart Simpson. But even he, I can switch off.

Please? Thank you very much.
