Caroline is a pretty polite kid for a two-and-a-half-year-old. She knows the magic word and most of the time remembers to say "thank you." One time I sneezed and she said, "Bless you, Mama." Not sure who taught her that.
...when she forgets the "please" part, her requests begin with "You have to..."
"You have to wipe my nose." "You have to get me some orange juice." "You have to button my coat."
This morning, when I went upstairs to get her out of bed, the first words out of her mouth were, "My nose is stuffy. You have to wipe the stuffy off."
Important side note: In less than 24 hours, our court fate will be decided. Not sure if we'll find out anything tomorrow or have to wait til Monday. But I'll shout it out as soon as we know.
