No is Ladybug's favorite word now.  One of her first ways to commuicate was shaking her head no, so this wasn't that much of a surprise.  She answered no to everything.

But this is different.  This is her tiny little way of asserting her baby independence.  Last week, I asked her to hand me something that she'd picked up.  She paused and thought about it, then said the tiniest little itty bitty  no  .  It was that small.  Like she knew she was entering dangerous territory. And straight to the corner she went.

Tiny figure = Ladybug in the corner

She said "no" all the way to school this morning.  I asked "No what?" she didn't have an answer.  She gave a chorus of nos while eating dinner.  Still not sure what that was about, but she means no.  She really does.

I know that tantrums and all of the "fun" that is a part of the terrible twos is coming.  And we'll have to keep tweaking discipline as she matures.  So far she seems like a big sensitive Sally like me, which means the corner is going to be pretty effective.  woooo hoooo.  I hope, LOL

Also, it's probably wrong to giggle while your child is in the corner, but that tiny no was funny.

  1. Ladybug in the corner might be the cutest thing I've ever seen....poor thing. I feel so sorry for her...:-(

  2. Kids are so funny. I find myself having to leave or wait until backs are turned so I won't burst into laughter right in front of them. I think it might completely undermine the discipline efforts. LOL!!
