This was one of Sofia's funniest works. It is as amusing as my mom's biggest pet peeve.
Sofia had found a red rubber ball. She was putting it too close to the babies' face so my
dad took it away.
Sofia- "GIMME MY BALL!!"
Dad- "Sofi, say it nicely."
Sofia- (in a softer voice) "gimme my ball."
Then dad gave her a look.
Sofia- "Can you gimme my ball?"
Eventually she got her ball. It is not easy to teach a 2 year old manners.
