Here’s a conversation my kids had yesterday. Reminder that Pegasus is two and Dragon is five.
Pegasus: I want a cupcake.
Me: *Clears throat agressively*
Dragon: What’s the magic key?
Pegasus: Magic key?
Me: She means say please.
Pegasus: Please can I have the magic key?
Me: No, say please for the cupcake.
Pegasus: Please for cupcake. *I give him a cupcake* Where’s magic key?
Me: She meant magic word, which is please.
Dragon: The magic key is please.
Pegasus: Can I have magic key please?
Me: There is no key, it’s a word.
Pegasus: What’s magic word?
Pegasus: *Confused* Can I have magic key please?
Dragon: *Mimes handing him a key* Here you go.
Pegasus: Yay! Magic key!
Me: *Throws hands in the air* Eat your cupcake please.
Some days I feel like an extra in Who’s on First.
Hope that made you smile.
Stay safe and be kind,
