Mr. Manners

I awoke to my favorite morning sound, a little piping voice calling, “Mommy, mommy, mommy, mooooooommmmmy!” so I bought a little extra time by handing Buster a new Cars book from the dwindling stash I’d tucked away after his birthday bonanza (five months ago.) He happily took the book and read to himself for another 20 minutes while I blinked myself awake.

Later in the morning, I overheard his Q-ster examining the book. “Buster, is that new? Did Mommy give it to you today?”

I wondered if he was going to come to me, demanding something new too. Instead, he continued to grill his little brother, “Did you say thank you?”

Buster came running into my bedroom, “TANK YOU!”

Awwww.

Well played, Q-ster. And Buster, too. Manners matter.
