on manners...

We are working with Quinn on his manners--with good success...at three, he says please, thank you, you're welcome...He's a little rough on addressing grown-ups properly. (Our neighbor, Bill Davis, is just "Davis" to Quinn, as in "Davis, are you there?" Bill got a hoot out of that one; Quinn's looking right at him asking this question...what else could he say: "Yes, I'm here, Quinn.")

So we were over at Karen's, (AKA "Miss Davis"), house--one of Quinn's favorite hang-outs because of her 11 and 16 year-old children who like to play with him--and it was time to go home to dinner. I finally had to pick him up and carry him home, to writhing and wails of "PLEASE put me down! PLEASE put me down!" Karen was mightily amused..."At least he's polite about it," she remarked.
