Ummm. How about thank you?

Overheard during the gift-opening last night.

Natalie: Cool! Look Mom! It's a gift card for Target!

Mom: Awesome Natalie. What do you say?

Natalie: Can I open the next present now?


  1. Happy Birthday (late) to Natalie.

    When I say "what do you say?" to Miles, he always answers with SOMETHING OTHER THAN THANK YOU. I was hoping he would grow out of it before eight. DANG.

  2. Hee hee. I always feel a little nervous when my kids open birthday gifts.

  3. I used to get nervous when the girls opened gifts in front of others, too! Thankfully, they get really good at their thank yous and appreciation! (She will, too.)
