"You're not gonna FIT there!"

I was pulling into a parking space at the mall when my then 2 1/2 year old son blurted out, "you're not gonna FIT there!" (There was an empty space on either side). The exchange echoed a time I had redirected him from "driving" his big push truck between the chairs in the living room (i.e. - "you need to go around, you're not going to fit there.") As funny as it sounded with just the kids and me in the car- imagine when my husband first heard the exchange. Thought I'd never hear the end of it.

I could dedicate an entire week to my little back-seat driver's running commentary!

Enjoyed hearing our son correct you this morning.."Mommy doesn't drive fast...she drives a little fast."

Where did he learn to be such a back seat driver??? Was it your husband's influence? ;)

LOL Lores - sadly I'm afraid he's learned it from me. Not from me back seat driving my husband...but from me directing his playtime!!! For instance I say, "please don't crash into the furniture" when he's driving his push truck. Then at some later date while I'm driving I hear, "please don't crash the van Mommy." Or another one: "You've got to be CAREFUL, Mommy!"

Imagine what guests must think of my driving!!!
