N-O

Yes, that's a word kiddos do NOT like to hear. I try not to say, "No" but rather, "Why don't you do this instead ...." or "Maybe we should look at something else ..." You know, using the element of distraction rather than 'no-ing' the whole day long.

So, the little one saw my new bracelet today and couldn't resist the temptation not to touch it ... I ultimately had to resort to the big N-O after all my 'why-don't-you's' and 'perhaps-you-should's'. That word got her attention pronto and this is what followed ...

A "Hmmmm .... I think mummy's
really serious this time ... " ...

and a big sorry hug ...

Nice work, Marsha. And of course you should say sometimes NO to your children, I know it is hard but it is important for them and too for you

Oooooh - I can see why you'd want to avoid the NO word - she's so adorable it would be a tough one to say to the little snuggler! Love the new bracelet!
