“Stay right there!”
Unsurprisingly, the source of these imperious commands was my ever-so-two-year-old daughter, Miss Mouse. What made me raise my eyebrows was the object of her bossiness: the stuffed animals hanging from Little Bear’s bouncey chair.
That’s right. Miss Mouse appears to be under the impression that the wee crocodile, zebra, and elephant are marshaling an uprising and she aims to stop them in their tracks. The best part is that she’ll walk a few feet away from the chair, then turn around, squat a bit, point her finger, and issue her commands in a very fierce voice. If those stuffed critters know what’s good for them, they’ll give Miss Mouse a wide berth.
