Featured: "Oh She's fine!"
does anyone else ever get this? when you tell your child not to do something and someone assumes you're just trying to be polite? does it drive you bonkers? now i have been know to take a parent to the side and ask if they are are enforcing a rule or just trying to be polite, but i never do it in front of the kid.
our most recent "oh she's fine!" was at the pool. i make a point to tell all the kids with me that when they jump in the pool they need to look and make sure they arent too close to anyone. so Gigi got a running start and did a canon ball less than a foot from one of our neighbors. when she came up i reminded her not to jump close to people and the neighbor pipes up. "She's fine!" i told him that she's 60 lbs and if she were to jump on him at full speed she could do some damage. but really i just wanted to scream "NO SHE'S NOT FINE!"
what do you do when people "oh she's fine" you?
