We were driving to Bible Study on Tuesday, when Elizabeth (3) burped. She very politely said, "Excuse You".
We all laughed a little and told her that when you burp, you say "Excuse ME", and that you say "You're Excused" when someone else says "Excuse me". Then Reuben said, "She shouldn't say that until she's like 19 or a mom". We were a little confused as to what he meant, so I said that she should be polite even though she's young and all of them should be as polite as adults (Elizabeth is very polite and some of her first words were "please", "thank you", "I'm sorry" and "excuse me")!
Then Reuben replied, "But only moms can excuse kids from the table"! LOL! I think we needed to confirm that we were talking about the same thing!
