Well, it had to start sometime. The moment a parent dreads... the first time their child says "No!". Madison's new thing is to say, "Nononononononononono....." She walks around saying it, shaking her head. We tell her "Nono" at times, so I'm sure that's where she picked it up. I'm also sure that, because of the context we say that to her, she knows what it means. But at the same time, I'm not convinced she's saying it to object to anything so much as it's just something new she's figured out how to say. She doesn't say it with attitude - she just says it. At the same time, hearing a kid say that just rubs you the wrong way. Matt & I want to be like, "Knock it off, kid!" -- but I don't think that would do any good. I think we just have to wait a week for her to get it out of her system and find a new word-of-the-week!!
