JellyBean: "Can I have a drink Mom?"
Mom: "Sure, if you remember to use your manners."
JellyBean: "Can I have a drink, please?"
Mom: "Yes you may."
(Pause while he drinks)
JellyBean puts his cup down on the kitchen island like you might see a cowboy in an old western do in a saloon and says, "I like milk. I need more."
I refill his glass and after he consumes it, he puts the now empty (X2) glass on the island again with an, "Ahhh. I'm good now."
Wow, how far we have come from the first time I gave he and his brothers a glass of milk for our first dinner together after placement when LoveBug stared at his glass of milk and asked, "Do I get to drink it all? Is it ALL for me?" I remember that my words failed me and I just nodded my head.
