Last night we were hanging out in the family room before dinner.  My four-year-old wanted to get past her brother, and instead of her typical, "Daaaaa-viiiid!" she said, "Excuse me.  Excuse me D, excuse me."

Jumping at the opportunity for some positive reinforcement, I said, "That was really using your good manners, C!"

To which she replied confidently, "I know."

Oooooooooooookay, then.
