Lessons In Politeness

This morning Night says to me, "You can tell me you're sorry."
Me: "That's Okay, honey. Why are you sorry?"
N: "No. YOU can tell ME you're sorry."
Me: "Oh. Why am I sorry?"
N: "You put away my Thomas (train set) and I want it out still."
Me: "I'm sorry, buddy. You can put it out now if you want."

He had his train ALL over the Den floor. It looked very nice, with bridges and curves, but the Den is the only room with carpet and I had to do Pilates there. I explained this to him earlier when he had asked what happened to his train, but silly me-I just thought he would be grateful that he didn't have to put it away himself!
