Funny Friday–Teaching Manners

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!”

Be sure to join me next week as we’ll be doing something exciting!  Here are a couple of clues:  blog tour, giveaway, new books!  If you haven’t already, sign up to receive I Choose Joy! in your email or through a reader.  And “like” my Facebook page!

Here’s a video–not to make you laugh, but definitely to make you smile (and possibly even cry a bit!)
