An important situation

We have found counting to three to be a very effective method for motivating Rosie.  Before we get to three, she usually has started moving; she really doesn't even like when we start counting and will often say, "Don't count to me!"

One night Rosie was upstairs drawing, and it was time for bed.  Her father called up to her that it was bedtime, and she responded with something about how she was busy drawing.  He told her that he was going to start counting, and she started to get frustrated.  And then he started counting: "One.... two...."  And Rosie responded...

"Stop DOING that!!!  This is SERIOUS!!!"
