We've constantly tried to imbibe in Isaac the basics of manners and courtesy, constantly telling him, making him say "Please" and "Thank You" etc.
The night before last night, at bedtime, I sat on the bed and gestured towards the pile of books in the corner "Isaac, go take a book, Mummy read to you..." as is our ritual every night, as I would have to read to Isaac before we sleep.
Isaac, turned, looked at me, and said:"Mama, say "please"."
Stunned, laughing away, I quickly obliged "Oh yes, please Isaac, can you please choose a book you want me to read to you?" :)
Hahaha... do unto others as you would want being done unto you, huh.
