Tidbit of conversation to show how defiant our soon-to-be 2-year-old is becoming:

- No, Baby, you cannot play with that, I say as I place (the phone, a kitchen knife, my friend’s iPod – it must have happened a 100 times with 100 different things) higher, thinking it’s now out of reach.

He extends further and grabs it, or gets a step stool, or climbs in another way to reach it.

- No, Baby, I said no, I say while prying the contentious item from his gripping hands.

- Baby sais yes!, he replies with a frown while tightening his grip.

I have to say, it’s hard to keep your cool under these conditions! I know, it’s just the beginning!
