Well? What'd you learn?

A phrase I stole from my very dear friend, Christina, "Well?  What'd you learn?" is a phrase I often find myself saying to the children when they do something that either I warned them not to do or seemed quite obvious in the first place.  Here are a few examples:

When I found Little Man dangling from the top of a window having lost his footing while standing on the window sill.  "Well?  What'd you learn?" - to which he replied "No climb on windows".  (He was only about 2 1/2 at the time)

Or when I found Peanut stuck behind the couch because he put the football helmet on after climbing into the tight space.  "Well?  What'd you learn?" - to which he replied "No helmets behind couch".

Well today while the kids were playing in the little plastic pool on the deck, Little Man put his eye right up to the spout and when the water was turned on, he got shot in the eye.  He was telling me all about it and how much it hurt.  "Well?  What'd you learn?" - to which he replied "that is what I am trying to tell you.  I learned not to put my eye up to the spout.  See Mama, you don't have to ask me what I learned I am already learned it and am telling you"

"Well?  What'd you learn?"
