March 1st is when it all started happening. She discovered the word "No!". She says it all the time. She has this little squeaky, groggly, dramatic voice that makes it worse. I am mortified! All I can think to do is redirect it and say "yes" and/or give her the stink eye. Any other ideas out there? Is this just a phase? I mentioned this to a friend the other day and he replied with "that's an important word", and that made me look at it a little differently. It IS an important word. I hope she remembers this important word when one day some boy is trying to hold her hand (or worse), or when she's offered booze or something illegal, or when she's 8 and has the pressure to put on makeup and shave her legs. No IS an important word. It's just hard to imagine it comes from this sweet angel face isn't it?
