At The Phone Store
A story from our trip to the phone store last week-
I was waiting in line for my turn to be helped. Bug (2y) was walking
around the store checking out all the displays. He took a few phones off
the wall hooks.
"Put those back please, they're not yours," I
said. Without even turning to acknowledge me, he put them back and went
along looking at everything. ... The woman behind me said- Wow, he is so good! How old is he?
Me- He's two.
Woman- Only two?! My boys would have been tearing the store apart at
that age. Even still at 5 and 7, they would be running around crazy.
Me- Well, I let him do whatever he likes so long as he's not harming
anyone or their property. I don't expect him to stand still. I think
Woman- *nodding* Yeah, my kids seem to go crazier when I tell them 'no'. Hmmm.....
