Brennan has learned THE WORD. You know the one. The one you hope comes last in your toddler's repetoire of newly developed language. The one you hope he'll NEVER repeat when you say it. But, let's be honest, it's IMPOSSIBLE not to say it in front of him about 982734923874 a day (or so it seems).

Yep, that's the one. "No."

I must admit, it's actually semi-cute. He has known what the word "no" means for awhile now and has been shaking his head "no" for a month or so. But last week, he climbed up on the kitchen chair to try to climb onto the kitchen table while I was fixing dinner. I, of course, walked over to him and said, "Brennan, NO. No, no. We do not climb up on chairs" and shook my finger at him. I think my jaw hit the floor when he looked at me and said "NO. No, no!" while shaking his finger at me.

Now, I really don't think he's telling me "No, don't tell me no!" It seems more like "Yeah mom, I know I'm not supposed to do this, so I'll look cute and say no so you don't yell at me too much". Stay strong mommy, stay strong. He also yells "NO!" at the dogs when they're barking. Maybe this could work out well for me....

  1. When you ask Grace what the mama says (as in what's the cow say, what's the doggy say?) She shakes her finger and says, NO NO NO!


I write for me. 100%. BUT it definitely makes my day when someone tells me that they enjoy reading my blog. Or that they hate it. Whatev.

So don't spare me your words of wisdom, encouragement, or mindless babble. I enjoy it all :)
