Justine has a bad attitude. I know she looks sweet and innocent. But she's developed a bad habit of bossing me around and talking rudely to me. I have found myself constantly reminding her how to speak with respect. Today was one of those days.
While at the zoo today, she states, "Get me some water."
Mom "May I have some water please?"
Justine "I don't have it, you do... duh."
So I go on to gently explain that I was showing her how to ask for water appropriately.
Mom "Now, I'm sorry I spoke to you disrespectfully."
Justine "Ah, that's OK mom."
Mom "No, that's what you're supposed to say."
Justine "Geez, you make this so hard... OK, I'm sorry I spoke to you dis...dis...respeckledy."
Yes that's better.
