Teaching manners around here is a constant process! Years ago when I told my oldest daughter not to talk with her mouth full (she was 3 at the time), she said, “It’s not full. There’s no food on this side of my mouth!”
I’ve been working on the same issue with my current 3-year-old daughter. This week we were in the bathroom brushing hair and she got a little sassy with me. I said, “Don’t talk back to me.” She looked at me very quizzically and said, “But I don’t have any food in my mouth.”
Another time I told the kids not to eat until everyone was seated at the table. My 4-year-old said, “I’m not eating; I’m licking!”
