This weekend my sister and I decided to take DD back to the pumpkin patch because she had so much fun there the first time and my sister wanted to see her play.  Once there we do everything go in the haunted house see the animals, do the corn maze, swing on the swings, slide down the slide, then we get to the little play school house.  DD goes in and is playing in the chair she gets some rocks and puts them on the desk and climbs up on the chair and then off the chair then back up on the chair she is having a ball.  All of a sudden things change a 7yr old little girl decides she wants to play in the school house too, it is big enough for a few kids so this should not be a problem.  Well DD does not want to share the school house so she stands in front of the door to block the girl from going inside.  Then she starts to stomp on the girls feet and when the girl does not leave my little 15month old tries to shove her out the door. 

I was in total shock, what was my little angle doing, where did she learn this?  I immediately got up and went over to her and told her how that was not nice and that she needs to share and that there was plenty of room for both of them to play in the school house and then I took her arm and walked her away from the school house and told her she was bad and tried to explain why.  I did let her go back and there were a few kids in the school house at that time and she played fine with them, but what got into her to do that?  She is only 15months old and is a bully already?  How can that be, we do not do those things in our house.  I hope this is just a phase and not a trend.
