Yesterday, Abby and I were grocery shopping at WalMart. She was misbehaving, so I told her to sit down and then I started counting, "one, two...." It rarely gets past two, because she knows that she will get in trouble if I say "three!" So, she sat down and was being pretty good. As we continued our shopping, we turned down an aisle where a mother was trying to get her small son to sit down and behave. Abby saw this, leaned over her cart and started yelling,"Hey! Uh, you....one....two" (with fingers held up in appropriate positions). I, being a bit embarrassed that my 2-year-old felt the need to try to discipline someone else's child, apologized to the mother. The mother started laughing and said, "Hey, maybe he will listen to her. Her certainly won't listen to me."
So, what happened? The little boy promptly sat back down in the cart and they continued their shopping.
Abby's going to be a great mother. :)
