The Manners of a Three Year Old

M: I want juice.
Mommy: Okay. How do we need to ask?
M (thrusting his cup towards me): I want juice.
Mommy: How do we need to ask?
M: Nicely?
Mommy: Right. You need to ask nicely.
M (smiling): Can you get me some juice?
Mommy: You're forgetting a word. How do we need to ask?
M (frowning and puzzled): Loudly??!?

I'm laughing out loud. That is sooooo M! I can even the see the frown and frustration ~ and the response just sums HIM up, doesn't it? Thank you for starting my day with a smile.
