Ladies first

Gary Coleman as Arnold

My son is learning the concept of, “Ladies first.”

We’ve been telling him that as he grows up, it’s polite to let girls and ladies go first.

And that everyone should let the elderly go ahead of them.

As we were heading upstairs for bed tonight, he said, “Ladies first,” and motioned for me to go ahead of him.

Then he helpfully added, “Old ladies especially first.”

      He said it so innocently, too. Not smart-assy at all! He thought he was being really chivalrous. HEE HEE! It made me laugh! 🙂

        That’s my favorite part!! Besides “old” isn’t the same concept to them anyway. It’s the cutest thing. ☺️ LOVE HIM! ❤️
