I suppose she did both things I had asked her to do. I would rather she hadn't.

Be careful what you wish/ask for!

Did she do them exactly the way you intended her to? Or just techinically correct but the process or outcome was different from what you expected?

Were their some unwanted side-effects of sorts that resulted from her doing said things?

Were the two things related?

Is she related to you?

Did you expect her to do them at all? If so, did she do them when you expected her to? Could you have predicted the outcome at any time before she did them?

Is she a sister? Daughter? Mother? Wife? Relevant? Is anyone involved other than you and her?

Did you expect her to do them at all? yope (is probably the best answer I can give, sorry) If so, did she do them when you expected her to? yes (assuming she was to do them) Could you have predicted the outcome at any time before she did them? probably, but I failed to

Is she a sister? Daughter? yes Mother? Wife? Relevant? yes Is anyone involved other than you and her? noone else who's relevant to the puzzle

Anyhting to do with silly things parents say to their children? e.g Shut your mouth and eat your dinner.

Or perhaps she misunderstood sarcasm something like "That's right go ahead and spill your juice all over the carpet"?

Did your child take something you said literally when she shouldn't have?

Did your request involve an "if"? Were you expecting her to only do one of the things?

Did her doing the things cause...
a serious problem?
Any real danger?
An inconvenience?
Loss of possessions?
Loss of money?
A misunderstanding?

Was the reason why the outcome different from what you expected...
Because of a change in circumstances?
Because of a dichotomy of spatial relativity?
Because you are not very good at predicting the future?
Because you made a false assumption?
Because you had a passive scrund?
Because there was cosmic irony?
Because she had done the same thing before with different results?

Were the two things...
things that would be done consecutively?
simultaneously?
nobody cares?

Would it have been better if she hadn't done either? Had done one of the two? Had done the things at a different time? In a different place? In a different manner?

Did you realize? Your mistake? Immediately afterward? A few seconds later? Ten years down the line?

I believe the Ellimist once said something like, "Everything changes the future..."
Is that quote relevant?

Is she younger than 5? 10? 15? 20?
Did any of the two things (ie doing something/avoiding doing something) involve SAYING something?
Was anything broken in the process (of her obeying you?)
Was the inconvenience a big one?
Was it only an inconvenience to you (which did not involve any other person)? Or to her?

Were it rather her feelings which were hurt?

So you told her to go somewhere and not to do something, right?

Was the place she was supposed to go far away? In the same room? Flat? Or was it outside?

If she only obeyed the do-thing, would the outcome have been better for her? anyone else?

Was the place you sent her to a specific room?

The "don't" thing - was it something what would have involved her active participation if she did it (like "don't throw that ball inside the house")? or rather a warning ("don't slip on the wet floor") ?

did she, um, pee in your bed?

She went into your bedroom? And then her bladder exploded?

You got it people

********SPOILER********

She'd peed in her the bed the night before when some fireworks went off, so I thought I'd be all clever and kind.

"If the fireworks scare you tonight, " I said, "please don't wet your bed, come into our bed instead".

I meant for a cuddle.

Thanks for playing and I hope you enjoyed it

Thanks for the puzzle! And, off the record, as a proud mother of a five-year-old and a three-year old, I deeply feel with you ;-))

That is a brilliant thing to say to a three-year-old. I'm going to remember that for when I have a bunch of three-year-olds of my own.

I'm going to remember to be more specific in the future!!

My daughter (and my wife) disappeared off and slept in my daughter's bed, leaving me to change the sheets by the way. Lucky me.

Doctapeppa, you should not lose hope - there are also children who are NOT obedient ;-))

Ah, yes. I won't give up yet. But there is also a wonderful device called a shock collar.
