When Adelade was three, I was trying to teach her to say “please” and “thank you.” I would often prompt her when people paid her compliments, singing in that motherly way, “What do you say?” and she would (usually) dutifully respond with a thank you.
She was going through a major Cinderella phase at the time, and she watched the movie almost every day. One day she asked me to get something off of a high shelf for her. Never one to miss an opportunity, I prompted her: “What’s the magic word?” She sweetly looked up a me and answered without a hint of sarcasm: “Bibbity-bobbity-boo.”
Have a magical Wednesday!
