You don't think they'd actually do it.

I was in a record shop, trying frantically to find my wallet. The guy already had given me my total and I was starting to panic.

The girls weren't being the best kids and it was only a second later when I heard "Mommy! Allison spit at me!" I was so flustered and panicked over my lost wallet, that I said back to her "Then spit back at her!"

Without a second to think about it, Ella promptly spit in Allison's face.

Oh goodness. I didn't think she'd actually do it! In the moment, I didn't know what I expected, but I didn't think that would happen. The record store guy started cracking up as I tried to calm down the newly spat upon child.

I'm sure that guy told everyone what a fabulous mother I was.

Ugh.

Yup. Back at Toys R Us. In the shopping cart. In the "cart corral". In the dark. In the ghetto.

I have had more than one moment like that. Funny how at the most inappropriate times they take you serious.

You are one lucky girl! Not just for reasons mentioned above though ;)

I'm willing to bet that when he tells the story he makes no comment whatsoever on your parenting skills. Just relays the absolutely hysterical fact of your daughter taking you up on your suggestion. Thanks for sharing!
