Goodness gracious what a polite child!

I’m not sure I can take any credit for this at all.  We do say please and thank you regularly but I think his teacher is more rigorous in enforcing manners.

This morning on the drive to school Duhdee and I were talking and I heard, from the back seat…

“Excuse me, Daddy?”

Duhdee kept talking but I stopped him and said, “Your son just said ‘Excuse me, Daddy’!”

Duhdee: “What, Monkey?”
Monkey… “Home?”

Ha!  It’s so much better than the days gone by (*touch wood*) when he’d whine “GO HOME!” the entire drive.

    Ahhh, don’t get me started on the manners of my co-workers!!! Lawyers are, in my experience, the single most socially inept group of people anywhere. They are closely followed by engineers though. [Note for my husband: 😉 Love you honey!]
