We have been working hard on manners with the kids. ‘Please’ and ‘Thank You’ are being strongly emphasized these days. So I was happy to hear that Cameron was learning the lesson — but it came about in a strange way.
We were sitting down to lunch today and Cammie (6) said to Brianna (8) in hushed tones, "You didn’t say the F word". She said, "What?" And I looked up too. Cammie said again, "You didn’t say the F Word. To Mom". Brianna looked puzzled again. And I was beginning to wonder what on Earth was my son trying to say. When he said, "Fank You. You didn’t tell Mommy, Fank You."
*Huge sigh of relief coming from Mommy…*
