Two year-old Sophia Benner is making headlines after defending her choice of doll to an ignorant cashier at a supermarket. Sophia was told she could pick out a prize for finishing her potty training.

According to Sophia’s mom,
“She kept going back to the doctor doll, because in her mind, she is already a doctor,” Benner said. “She loves giving checkups, and if you come in the house, she’ll tell you that’s the first thing you need.”
