A Quote From Bubble Butt


This is what we heard in response to almost everything we asked, for approximately the last two months. I love it. I'm a very positive person (except on Tuesday.) I remember it started before Thanksgiving. We were at Grandma and Grandpa's house, and had an entire discussion about the loveliness of hearing the word "Yes" from our toddler. It was wonderfully positive. Everything is a yes! Yes, yes, yes!

Times, they are a changin'.

A recent conversation went like this:
Me: Hey, sweetie, do you want to get out of the crib now?
the Bear: [shakes head vigorously 'no']
Me: Ok, well, what about some books, do you want some books in there?
Bear: [thinks. shakes head 'no']
Me: Hm. I bet you want to come out of there and have a snack.
Me: Ok! Let's change that diaper first.
Bear: No no no no no no no no no.
Me, laughing: Is that your new fascination, the word 'no'?
Bear: NO!

J went through this. He also learned "yes" first (which was awesome). Once he figured the whole no thing out, it was all I heard for about a week. It really did pass quickly in our house so hopefully it will for you too.

Peanut's finally gotten to the stage where you can trick him by switching from yes to no during a back and forth so that he'll end up saying yes. It usually makes him giggle and power struggle over.

If only us moms could say no as easily as our toddlers do... :)

I love this age. Yes means yes. No means you haven't told them what they want to hear yet.
