Aubrey loves saying please and thank you.
"cereal please mommy"
"thank you mommy"
The other morning we were brushing our teeth when Aubrey sneezed -projecting a giant wad of snot all over her face. I attempted to blow her nose and was greeted not with please and thank you but with a stream of indecipherable yelling. Apparently, she did not want her nose to be blown.
"Aubrey, I have to blow your nose. Otherwise all that grossness is going to run down onto your clean teeth and that's not going to taste very good."
She paused for a moment. ...
"oh, sorry mommy"
I love it when our conversations result in understanding!
