What I said, what he heard

Today, due to extreme naughtyness that was discovered right before dinner, I informed the children they were in trouble and they would be punished after dinner. Let them stew a bit, right?

Daniel keeps casting me these worried looks and finally asks "Where are you going to punish me?"
I looked at him for a moment, trying to decode just what he meant.
"Are you going to punish me in my tummy?"
oh my word, my baby was worried I was going to PUNCH him in the stomach after dinner!!
Talk about feeling like the worst mom ever!
Quickly I corrected that "punish" is another word for "consequence" which he is very familiar with lol
