Such is toddlerhood

Sweets: "Milk? Milk please?"
Mommy: "Here's your milk cup, sweetie pie."
Sweets: "No! No milk!"
Mommy puts the offending milk cup on the counter.
Sweets: "Milk?"
Mommy: "You would like your milk back?"
Sweets: "No!"
Mommy: "Ok."
Sweets: "More milk?"
Mommy offers cup.
Sweets: "No milk!"
Mommy puts the cup out of reach and sight in the hopes of netting herself 10 minutes to prepare dinner.
Sweets (insert incessant whining here): "Milllllllllk! More millllllllllllk! More millllllllllllllllllllllllk!"
Mommy: "Sweetheart, what would you like? Mommy is confused. Do you want your milk or not?"
Sweets: "Diapy?"
Mommy: "You need a diaper?"
Sweets: "No!"
Mommy: "Then what would you like?"
Sweets: "No!"

Ok, then.


  1. Dear lord, I feel you on this. I feel like we are constantly in the midst of one of these "do you want it or not?!" debates.

  2. Isn't toddlerhood special? ;) It's amazing how many tones and methods they have of saying "no!"
