Amanda is out running errands the other day. So, Quinn and I are messing around. He *needs* a snack. We decide on string cheese. After the fist bite, he wants more cheese or "mo cheez." I ask him to say please. He does. "PEAS DADA, CHEEZ!" Not bad.
Next piece of cheese, I ask him to say please, again. He does.
I'm happy, he's getting the hang of being nice.
Next piece of cheese, I try something new, "Quinnie, say the magic word."
He throws his arms up in the air, gets an excited look in his eye, and then he says, "TAAAADAAA!!!" while turning around.
Perfect. "Please" is not the magic word. The magic word is what you say when you do a magic trick to make people clap...
