My Silly Little Monkey!
I’ve wanted to post for awhile about how much Maddie has been talking lately, but felt like a bad mommy to interrupt my birthday posts for A.J! However, this story is just too funny to not pass along! Ben and I have been trying to teach Maddie to say “No thank you” instead of just “No.” We haven’t been as consistent as we’d like in helping her in this area, so the following moment caught me completely by surprise.
Maddie has a Blue’s Clues video where Blue pretends to be a monkey and asks the viewer “Do you want to pretend to be a monkey, too?” Now Maddie typically does not interract or respond to the video she’s watching, but at that moment she quietly and politely said, “No, thank you.” What a sweetheart! I couldn’t help but laugh at her little voice kindly turning down Blue’s request!
