Confusion

After he'd finished breakfast, Ethan came to me with his yogurt cup and his spoon. It's customary for me to help him scrape one more last bite out of the cup.

Ethan: You get one more bite for me, Mommy. Right now.
Me: Whoa! That's not how we ask. How do you ask?
Ethan: Please?
Me: That's nice, but it's still not asking. How do we ask?
Ethan: Can I please have some yogurt?
Me: Can you please help me get one more bite?
Ethan: Yes, sure!
