Mastering the Art of Language

Those of you with kids know how frustrating they can be at times. Often talking non-stop or doing some annoying fidget that wears on your sanity. Driving around the southern part of this lovely state put me in one of those positions this past week. My darling little boy whom I love to death was spouting every sentence beginning with, "I want....". It went a bit like this:

"I want my toy!" "I want my shark toy!" "I want my little airplane!" "I want I want I want I want I want my this!"

OK...now that gets to be really annoying very fast, but when he got to his 50th sentence beginning with, "I want" I had had it! I told him, "I do not want the next sentence out of your mouth to begin with the words I WANT!" So without missing a beat....

"May I have my airplane toy?" as sweetly as he can ask!
