Etiquette 101

Claire: “I’m thirsty.”

Me: “Okay.”

Claire: “Mom, I’m thirsty!”

Me: “I heard you just fine, sweetie.”


Me: “Claire, that is not how to ask someone for something.”

Claire: “Okay, can I have some of that thirsty stuff?”

    OH how kids in church hate it when I am non-responsive to their demands cloaked as statements. “I have to go to the bathroom.” “I haven’t had a turn.” “I didn’t get my snack.” Which are generally met with a “How interesting” from me. Occasionally they rephrase it as a question…but it’s more fun when they get frustrated. 🙂
