Nora has a bad habit of yelling across the house for me.
I let this go on longer than I should have, which Ben pointed out to me the other day when we were in the bedroom and Nora was wailing like a banshee from the kitchen.
I went into the kitchen and explained that it hurt my feelings when she yelled for me without saying please and using a nice tone of voice. I pointed out that her teacher would never call for the children like that, and could she please call for me the way Miss Erin calls to the class when she needs them to line up.
So, now, when Nora wants me from the other room, she sings this: “Cherry Blossom Children! Lunch time!”
