Conversation this morning as I was drying my hair in the bathroom:
Me: Hey Noelle, can you please pick up this book and put it back where it belongs?
Noelle (looking right at me): No.
Me: Noelle, I need you to listen to mommy and please put this book back.
Noelle (shaking her head): No.
Me: Come pick up the book and put it away.
Me: Noelle, please come here and pick up the book.
And she did! (And put it away after I showed her exactly where to put it.) :)
Only about two weeks till her second birthday and just this week we've started to say 'no'! The fun is just beginning! :)
