Today when I picked the kids up from church I heard the words every parent longs to hear:
"Your children have the best manners of any children I've ever been with. Emma said, 'May I please have my snack?' I don't even use the word 'May...'"
This was of course exciting, but Emma usually is pretty polite, especially when food is involved. The other teacher promptly came up and said, "Oh yes, and Caleb kept telling us, 'Don't talk to me!!'"
Oh well, we'll just have to keep working on it...
