Surely to be Misinterpreted

One morning, not so long ago...
Oddly, Adlyn wasn't the first one awake.  Brooks, Zach, and I were up and getting ready for work and school.  Adlyn comes into the room, obviously frustrated and grumpy.

Adlyn:  "Mom, why you keep beating me up?"

Mom:  (Puzzled, but knowing what she really meant.)

Adlyn:  "Mom, sometime I want to beat you up!"

Mom:  "Adlyn, you are almost always the first one up, today you just slept a little longer."

I'm sure that to an outsider, that conversation sounded horrible!
