I have always been big in saying 'thank you" when someone does something nice for you.
I say thank you when someone hands me something, gives me something or compliment me. I wish to rub off on the stepboys but they arent picking up my cue.
My husband says he dont expect them to say thanks all the time as it will start to sound fake. I told him I dont care, sometimes my niece over uses it but she makes sure that I hear her so she will repeat it. I told him it never gets old to me and shows appreciation. Everytime I do something for them, they dont say a word. I usually say "I dont expect anything in return but a simple thank you'!! or "what do you say"?? Then they mumble thank you..lol
Am I being overly crazy or is this something that is reasonable?? Thanks
