No. No! NO!!

No... Stop it... Please stop doing that... Stop!... Come here!... No... No, please.... NO!... Stop...That's enough... Please stop it... NO!...Please sit down!...Don't climb on the table...NO!...Get down...Stop doing that!...NO!...NO!

I just thought I'd give you a peek into every 5 minutes of my day.

I mean really, how many times a day CAN someone say NO?

I guess I wouldn't make a very good Scientologist.

Just think - you were worried about her development at some point during all of this. Hmm... Doesn't eat off a spoon? When will she walk? Now she's just like every other kid - exploring, climbing and not listening.

i remember reading a "parenting book" that said that the yes's in a day should outnumber the no's - then i remember thinking that the author ahould come and live with two boys - and i threw the book away... i have yet to have one of those days!!

And SMILING! oh my gosh, you should have seen that smile last night!!! Well, you probably did, but you see it daily so maybe it's not so utterly arresting...

I tagged you for a really SHORT book meme given your time frame...

Well, it could be worse and you could have a third child where the No's are tripled in one day.

Or, you could be thoroughly mortified at church by your grade schooler's unbelieveable behavior to the point of wanting to hide out until Lent is over.....

Wanna get away???

Don't let Tom Cruise hear you saying that.

I say no multiple times in a single minute sometimes. And the only thing I've really learned from that is that it is never fun to be the person who says "no."

But I shall continue to do it. Because, seriously, the dogs don't want to be ridden, I don't think the kids should ingest candy or watch movies 24/7 and yes, it's true, I don't think it's safe to put the dog leash around my daughter's neck, regardless of if she wants to pretend to be a pet!
