Ms. Bossy Pants
Two-Year Old Logic
As I sat in the car driving and serving as my children’s personal chauffeur. A voice from a determined two-year old in the back yelled, “Give me my Lovie!”
I calmly replied, “Well honey, I’m driving and I can’t get it right now.”
A yell shot back at me. “I WANT my Lovie!!!”
At this point I retorted, “Quit being bossy.”
Not to be outdone, the sweet little voice said “I’m not bossy, I’m a gurl.”
“Yeah, you’re a bossy girl.”
“No, you’re bossy and I’m a gurl.”
I just allowed the cuteness and cleverness of this exchange to win out.
P.S. She didn’t ask for her Lovie again until we got home. Looks like we all won.
