We’ve been trying to teach Aramis to say “please may I have” instead of “I want”. Here is a little anecdote from today that demonstrates how he’s doing so far:
Aramis: What’s in your cup, Mommy?
Pilgrim Mom shows him.
Aramis: Is it Ribena?
Aramis grabs cup to drink.
PM: Hey, that’s mine!
Aramis: No, mine!
PM: How do you ask me nicely?
Aramis: (in gentle dulcet tone) It’s mine.
