Polite Obstinance

"Me don't want to talk right now" was the reply from the bedroom this morning after Caskey inquired as to what Alexander was doing. He has previously been in trouble twice for not getting dressed for school. He was wandering around the house Donald-Duck-Style, bottomless with a shirt on. But the allure of Legos and trains was too much for him. Each time he was sent into his room to dress he would invariably end up playing instead. So Caskey again inquired as to how he was doing in regards to dressing. He replied with, "Me busy, daddy." Of course he was. He was busy *not* getting dressed. At least he was polite about it rather than just ignoring us.
