Response 1: Picture this

While standing in line at the bank one afternoon, my three year old toddler decided to release some pent-up energy and run amok.  I was finally able to grab hold of her after receiving looks of disgust and annoyance from other patrons.  I told her that if she did not start behaving "right now", she would be punished. To my horror, she looked me in the eye and said in a voice just as threatening, "If you don't let me go right now, I will tell Grandma that I saw you kissing Daddy's pee-pee last night!"

The silence was deafening after this enlightening exchange.  Even the tellers stopped what they were doing.  Mustering up the last shreds of dignity I had, I grabbed my daughter’s hand and marched quickly out of the bank. The last thing I heard as the doors closed behind me were loud screams of uncontrolled laughter.

  1. This made me blush! Very good storytelling in 150 words. I fear she must change her bank. Poor bank tellers will recreate the image every time she walks in.
