Out Of The Mouths of Babes


This one word seems to be the most used word by the ladybug.

Me: Ladybug do you want to eat?
Ladybug: Nope!

Me: Ladybug do you have to potty?
Ladybug: Nope

Insert me pulling out my hair strand by strand. I don’t seem to remember this HUGE ‘no’ stage with the Cellist, or maybe having two children 8 years apart aides in my memory loss.

While it was comical at first, this little word is tending to drive me a bit nuts. What to do, what to do?

    Nope. That's easier and faster than saying, "No mother. I choose not to indulge in the activity you are asking me to partake of."


  2. Teri says:

    Well, its nice to know my daughter isn't the only one saying "Nope" to everything! ARGH!!!!

    Please tell me the phase will be over one day, right?
