Lately, MH has been a bit on the bossy side and occasionally forgets her manners. I'm not complaining, it could be far worse, but I am a stickler for please and thank you.

In the morning, we have a little routine that consists of her drinking chocolate milk munching a few animal crackers in my bed (I know, many of you out there are cringing at the idea of the crumbs in bed, but I assure you, it's well worth the mellow start to our day).

The routine is at its best when Daddy is still home and I don't have to do much more than try to find Dora in the DVR queue sans glasses, and then cuddle up.

But I digress.

This morning, after a rough night of sleep for all of us, MH came in all sleepy and sweet.

We snuggled quietly for a few, then she asked for Dora.

And a few minutes later "Can I have chocolate milk and animal crackers?".

Followed by: "No animal crackers, just chocolate milk".

Followed by: "Sweetie, I think we forgot a word - let's try again the right way, k?"

Followed be: "Mommy, can I please have no animal crackers and chocolate milk please?"

In the cutest little morning voice ever.

No animal crackers and chocolate milk she received!

Henry is a Instant Breakfast drinker in the AM - it just so easy, I'm loving it.

If you can believe it, I'm a stickler for good manners too :)
