We have a word that is apparently way overused to in our house, because we are hearing it WAY to much from the little one.
If you are wondering if that's Reed and Megan under that big red bucket, the answer would be YEP!
Unfortunately, Reed's new favorite response is "yep" to almost anything and anyone. A response, which is terribly rude in my opinion. When we lived in Texas kids called me Jeff and always responded with "Yes" and "No".
In Tennessee, kids call me Mr. Jeff and say "Yes, sir" and "No, sir".
Although there was a time that I didn't care to be thought of as sir or Mister, that time has passed.
Especially when it comes to the kiddo in that red bucket that is sitting where his toys should be!
I can't stand to ask Reed a question and for him to tell me "yep". I always make him correct it to "Yes, sir". He's pretty good at saying "please and thank you" but "sir and ma'am" are real stuggles for him.
Anyone have any advice on how to get Reed to use manners when responding to adults?
Enjoy this video of Reed going down the steps, the fast way.
