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