I was so proud of my two-year old daughter the day she said, “N.O., No!” I didn’t even care that she was openly defying me. I thought, She’s learning to spell. Hooray!
Apparently, she wasn’t learning to spell.
Apparently, I didn’t not mask my excitement well enough.
Since that day, she has decided that it’s cute to yell out random letters every time she openly defies me by saying no: “I.E.P., no!” and “M.P., no!” and…
Well, that’s it. For some reason, she’s decided that “no” is spelled “mp,” no matter what I say. I give up. She’s broken me. I will now be calling all dictionary publishers, so they may update their listing on how to correctly spell the word most used by defiant toddlers.
