Nora woke up from her nap in a pretty decent mood, but when Andrew asked her if she wanted a snack, juice, etc., she just kept saying, “No.” Finally he said, “Do you need a clean diaper?” and she held up her hand and said, “Just leave me alone.”
I was folding laundry and told Jack I needed him to put away his clothes. “No, thanks,” he said.
“Uh… the correct answer is, ‘Sure thing, Mom,’” I told him. There was some more argument and I finally said, “We’re going to make you a chore list, Jack.”
“Nooooo!” he said.
“Jack, how old are you again?” I asked.
There was a brief pause. “Not very,” he said.
