    First lesson: Do not ask “yes/no questions”. Ask “open ended questions” Example : “What would you like to read before bed tonight?” or ” How do you go down the slide?”.
    Who the heck is Mike Wazowski? Is he an athlete? I will “google” him.

    OMG – I was just going to type the EXACT thing my sister just typed – including Mike Wazowski. I guess brilliant minds think alike!

    By the way, ask me if I want to go to work today – NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Haha Joanne! My thoughts exactly, however, I was not up at the ungodly hour of 5:16 am to write a post. I too am clueless on Mike Wazowski. All I know is “the great and powerful Woz” of Apple fame.
