I was at the bookstore earlier today with my guy and Mandolin. My guy had half day of work today so we met after for lunch and books. Mandolin had to go "big girl potty" so off we rushed to the bathroom. Another woman came in to take care of her own business while Mandolin was finishing hers up and we started washing our hands. Hand washing is always a drawn-out affair. I usually ignore other people in the bathroom, as we're socialized to do, but halfway through the second round of the "wash your hands song" Mandolin started yelling at the woman who came in earlier. Apparently this woman decided not to wash her hands and Mandolin flipped out and started yelling "Mommy, that's dirty" and pointing at the woman. The woman shot us a look and quickly left the room. We completed our song and hand washing and made our way out of the room to look for daddy when Mandolin decided to tell everyone and I mean EVERYONE in the store that the woman was dirty and didn't wash her hands while pointing at said woman. Her exact words were "Eww yuck, she's dirty mommy, you gotta wash hands, yuck it's dirty" with the exuberant hand pointing and arm waiving that only a small child can do. I was mortified.
