"Oh no, we stay away from princesses" - Mom of a 2 year old toddling towards Princess Sophia.
Yeah, good luck there, momma.
I was a smug toddler-mom too, until we hit five years old.
"That's for boys" - Grandma to her toddler daughter who grabbed a Teenage Mutant Turtle toy.That's unfortunate. Very unfortunate.
"O ha, birthday and Christmas only" - Dad's warning to his preschooler upon entering.
That was a reminder to me to start thinking of my own rules about toy-buying.
I copied that dad shamelessly.
"For important toys, go ask your mom." - Dad to his 8 year old who wanted a big Lego set
Consistency in parenting rules! And deference to mom.
Mmmm, I'm liking that too much.
What are your overheard parenting stories? I'd love to know.
