Manners Schmanners

"What did you do at school today?"

"Me play."

"What did you play?"

"Me play inside."

"What did you play inside?"

"Paint. And me peel apples!"

"That sounds fun! What else?"

"Me play owside."

"What did you play outside?"

"Gucks." (That would be trucks.)

"What else?"

"Me eat snack."

"Oh? What did they have for snack today?"

Totally disgusted. "Juice! Puple juice!"

"Did you drink it?" (Like I don't already know the answer.)


"Did you remember to say no thank you?"

"No. Me said (to) dat Mommy juice is eew! Juice is icky! Me no drink dat!"

"Is that what the Polite Elephant would have said?"



"Is otay. My teacher give me waber isstead."

We used to get compliments all the time from complete strangers on our child's manners. Time to break out the Emily Post again.
