How do you ask?
Abe’s request: “I want Starburst.”
Mommy, attempting a teachable moment: “How do you ask?” Of course, I was fishing for a ‘please’ as a starburst was totally within the limits of my version of nutrition today and I was simply trying to encourage some manners. Apparently, I was not concrete enough in my question.
Abe in quick response: “I ask Daddy.”
Then he trotted off and I haven’t heard any more about it since.
