Last night we took baby bo peep to eat pizza with family for a belated
mother day feast.

When we took her back home, mom asked how things went and she said
"I had a pointing issue"

While it is true, we asked her not to point when she pointed, it just about killed me that this is what she took home from the experience.

She is 4
She was shushed a time or two for using her outside voice
and she pointed at a new baby who came in with the parents she knew

She is 4
she was excited about coloring her page with the crayons they gave her
she was excited about seeing a newborn baby

here are the things she did NOT do
and I am about to point!

She did NOT
  • turn up the tv too loud to watch basketball
  • test drive a vehicle in the parking lot while waiting on our table
  • fart and pretend no one heard
  • blow her nose at the table and then examine it for what seemed like 5 minutes
  • smack

She might have thought she had a pointing issue
but I happen think there were a few adults that could take a lesson from this 
4 year old
on how to act

I have a 21 year old stepson who doesn't act that well in public. I'm sure you had a great evening.
