Grace & Courtesy: Tea Pouring Session

Since Tiger is more verbal now, we are working on his manners.

First up, saying:
PleaseThank you, and You are welcome 

I know that manners are best learned through modelling but sometimes
adults tend to forget and take things for granted.
I also know he is only two and he probably wouldn't comprehend the true meaning of courtesy.
At the moment, mastering these social skills and vocalising the words appropriately is good enough.

We had some Parkson shopping vouchers so we bought this:
A robin blue picnic basket with a tin tea set inside.
I have been looking around for a proper tea set for some time now.

When I saw this flower pattern inside, it was a done deal.

We practised pouring, with real water of course.
Sometimes he does it with two hands, sometimes one.

He has been playing with this set for days.
Almost as much as his play dough. So, I know it is serious business.

ME: What are you doing there?
Tiger : I doing make coffee.
ME: Wow, can I have some, PLEEAAASEEE?
Tiger: Yes!  (Hands me a cup)
Me: Thank you. Psst...say you are welcome...
Tiger: come

We invited Scout and Alphie to join our tea party.
So, a little snack was in order.
Therefore, he got to do some tonging and sorting as well

Mama always gets pink and Tiger's always blue.
As usual, he enjoyed 'school' very much.
Needless to say, so did I...
