Kembe is a keen observer of our family dynamics.  Apparently, I have a habit of using the affirmation “good example” when one of the kids is following directions.  I didn’t really notice how much I said it, until Kembe started to point out when he was being a good example, too.  Only he thinks I’m saying “goodie sample”.  So now, when he straps his own carseat, or sits quietly in wait for dinner, or puts his pj’s away, he points to himself and says “I’m a goodie sample”.

I think that Costco somehow plays a part in this.
