"Down" means "up"

At least, it does in our house right now! Jonathan thinks that "dow!" means both "up" and "down". And he wants to go up and down EVERYTHING. So my days currently consist of:

"Dow!"
"Ok, Jonathan, let's get UP into the chair."
"Dow!"
"Yes, you may get down now."
"Dow!"
"You mean UP, sweetheart. Yes, Mommy will pick you up."
"Dow!"
"Ok, time to get down now."
"Dow!"
"Why don't you try climbing UP onto the cushions by yourself? I think you can!"
"Dow!"
"Yes, you got stuck on the cushions. Hang on, Mommy will come help you down..."

You get the idea. ;) I wonder how long it will take for him to learn that "up" means "down"...I mean, "up" means "up"!

I think they may have finally got the distinction down by now, but for a long time it was "up-down" around here. =)
